|Vidalia softball downs Marksville|
Marskville's Rachel Bordelon had trouble finding the plate Monday against Vidalia's Lady Vikings. But when she did, the Lady Vikings made her pay.
Vidalia scored seven runs in the first inning and never looked back in a 21-6 win over the Lady Tigers.
Kennedy Beard led off for Vidalia in the bottom of the first and took a Bordelon pitch over the left field fence.
Lady Viking head coach Gary Paul Parnham said he knows of only one other Vidalia player to hit a ball over the fence in Vidalia and only four all together.
The fence is 220 feet away from home plate.
The home run was Beard's second of the season.
Laura Perrilloux followed Beard's solo shot with a single and then Bordelon struggled throwing strikes, walking in two runs and hitting two batters with the bases loaded.
Perilloux allowed just one hit through the first two innings.
Vidalia loaded the bases in the second inning and Katlyn Temple doubled.
The Lady Tigers would not go away quietly as they scored four runs on six hits off Perilloux, all of them singles, in the top of the fourth inning to make it a 12-6 ball game.
The Lady Vikings scored nine runs in the bottom of the fourth as Taylor Rogers doubled with the bases loaded and Megan Naquin doubled in two runs. Beard's RBI single with two outs in the frame ended the game with the mercy rule.
Perilloux finished 3-for-4 with two stolen bases, Naquin went 2-for-4 with three RBIs and three stolen bases, and Beard was 3-for-4 with two RBIs.
Vidalia's softball team fell to Caldwell 5-3 Thursday.
"We had four errors that led to four runs," Parnham said.
The Vikings scored one run in its first at bat, but the Lady Spartans answered with two runs in their first at-bat.
The Lady Vikings tied the game in the top of the third with a run, but Caldwell answered with a run in the fourth and two runs in the fifth.
Kelsee Partridge and Taylor Rodgers had two singles each for Vidalia, which fell to 1-4 in District 3-3A.
Vidalia (15-9, 2-4) plays at Jena at 4 p.m. Thursday.
