|Vidalia slips by Jena|
Vidalia High scored the winning run in the seventh inning as the Vikings defeated Jena 6-5 Monday in Jena in the District 3-3A opener for the Vikings.
"It wasn't easy, but being a district game and coming off playing bad in our tournament, this was a big win," said Vidalia coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir. "It's always great to start out district with a win, especially when you can sneak one in on the road. I told the team this was about the time of year we started turning things around last year, so hopefully we're starting to get on track now. We just have to be more patient swinging the bat."
Jena took a one-run lead on an error in the sixth inning before the Vikings took advantage of a Giant error to plate the winning runs in the seventh.
John Brixey homered and tripled for the Vikings.
"John has been swinging a hot bat," Hoffpauir said. "He has one of the best short, compact swings I have seen in high school baseball."
The home run was Brixey's third of the season.
Seth Thompson doubled and singled, while Matt Souderes added two singles.
Thompson was the winning pitcher.
"Seth pitched a good ballgame after having a shaky outing last Friday," Hoffpauir said. "He really came through for us."
Vidalia plays at Buckeye Thursday, hosts Block in a make-up game Friday and hosts Avoyelles Saturday.
