|Lady VIkings end season|
Vidalia High's first home playoff softball game since 2007 got off to a good start.
But the Achillie's heel of the Lady Vikings showed up in a big way in the second inning as the Lady Vikings fell to Rayne 16-4 in the Class 3A first round contest.
The Lady Vikings, who were the No. 15 seed, finish their season at 15-14.
Lady Viking starting pitcher Laura Perrilloux set the Lady Wolves down in order in their first at-bat.
Perrilloux reached on an error in Vidalia's first at-bat and Katlyn Thornton drilled a ball between left and centerfield to score pinch-runner Kadesia Thomas to give the Lady VIkings a 1-0 lead.
Rayne's first two batters in the top of the second reached base and with runners on second and third and no one out, Perrilloux struck out the next two batters.
The next batter reached on an error, followed by a Rayne hitter who bunted and reached when no one covered first.
Two more errors led to an 8-run inning.
"We had 11 errors and that was definitely the deciding factor," said Vidalia head coach Gary Paul Parnham. "They only had three hits. I felt like we gave that one away."
The Lady Vikings had to play without senior Kelsee Partridge, one of the team's top offensive and defensive players, because she was out with the flu.
"We had to play six freshmen, and I'm not so sure the atmosphere may have gotten to them," Parnham said. "But they gave all they had. We definitely missed Kelsee and I hate she had to miss out on competing in a playoff game. We made a lot of improvement from last year. I'm proud of everything the girls accomplished."
Rayne, 15-15 visits No. 2 Brusly for a second-round contest.
