|Vikings split in district|
What a difference a couple of days can make.
After easily disposing of Avoyelles Parish 16-7 on Saturday to improve to 2-0 in District 3-3A play, the Vidalia Vikings dropped their first league contest of the season, falling to Marksville 15-5 in Marksville Monday.
"We seem to be following the same pattern all year," said Vidalia coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir. "Seth Thompson did a good job starting and Trey Lillie did well in relief and we were able to stay in there and win the ballgame. But a funny thing happened when we got to Marksville. We couldn't do anything right. We had five critical errors. The thing I am most disappointed in is our hitting. We just have not been consistent."
Vidalia, 2-1 in District 3-3A, plays at 5-0 Bolton on Thursday.
"If we can get a road win there it will keep us right in it," Hoffpauir said. "Anybody can win this district, but it depends on who has the pitching and who can compete three days out of the week. Right now we're not one of those teams."
Against Avoyelles, Thompson doubled and singled twice, while B.J. Neely collected two singles. Jamale Davis doubled and singled. Caleb Vines and John Brixey each doubled.
Ben Parnham had a 3-run home run to account for most of the Viking runs against Avoyelles parish.
Vidalia defeated Block, 14-10 on Friday.
Trailing 8-7, Vidalia scored five runs in the fifth and two in the sixth to pull ahead for a win.
Viking reliever Jamale Davis held Block scoreless over two innings. Vidalia went up 6-3 in the second as John Brixey tripled in Seth Thompson.
