|Vikings keep pace in 3-3A|
Vidalia High improved to 6-1 in District 3-3A with another cardiac win, defeating Buckeye 12-11 Saturday in Vidalia.
The win was the fourth one-run win in district for the Vikings.
"These guys just won't quit," said Vidalia head coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir, who improved his coaching record to 475-204 with the victory. Hoffpauir re-started the Vidalia program in 1979.
Once again, the Vikings waited until their last at-bat for the dramatics.
Down 11-10 in the bottom of the seventh, Seth Barlow singled, Seth Barlow doubled, John Brixey was intentionally walked and B.J. Neely followed with a walk-off single to score the tying and winning run.
"This team make mistakes, but one thing about them, they always play hard," Hoffpauir said. "And they never give up."
In the top of the seventh, Buckeye scored four runs to take an 11-10 lead.
Buckeye started the game with three runs in the first inning, but Vidalia tied the game in their first at-bat as Brixey singled in two runs and Neely singled in Matt Souderes.
Vidalia, meanwhile, scored one run in the bottom of the second, two in the third and three in the fourth, giving it a 9-5 lead going into the sixth. Vidalia added another run in the bottom of the sixth on a pinch-hit double by Devon Barnes that scored Souderes.
Vidalia defeated Jena 13-2 Thursday in Vidalia.
"That was more like it," Hoffpauir said. "We got some crucial two-out hits and Seth (Thompson) had a good outing."
Vidalia scored three runs in the first inning, added four in the second and five in the third.
John Brixey hit his home run of the season and singled, while Thompson singled and doubled.
Nate Bozeman singled twice.
Vidalia is seeded No. 22 in the latest Class 3A power ratings.
The top 32 make the playoffs, while the top 16 will host a first-round playoff game.
The Vikings have advanced to the playoffs every year since 1990. The last time the Vikings finished with a losing record was 1989, when Vidalia went 5-8.
