Vidalia softball splits tourney

MONROE, La. — The Vidalia Lady Vikings went 1-1 Saturday afternoon at the Neville Tournament, defeating Franklin Parish 14-2 in four and a half innings before falling to Cedar Creek 7-5.

In the win over Franklin Parish, Laura Perilloux gave up a two-run home run to the Lady Patriots’ Lindsey Robbins. After that, Perilloux allowed no runs and just four more hits to go along with two strikeouts to pick up the win on the mound.

Vidalia took the lead for good with five runs in the bottom of the first inning. That was followed by another five-run rally, this time in the bottom of the third. The Lady Vikings added four more runs in the bottom of the fourth.

In the game against Cedar Creek, Rodgers hit a two-run home run during a five-run rally in the top of the second inning that gave the Lady Vikings a 5-1 lead over the Lady Cougars.

That lead, however, would not last very long. Cedar Creek responded with a five-run rally of its own in the bottom of the third inning to take the lead for good at 6-5. The Lady Cougars added an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth for a 7-5 lead.

Vidalia had one last chance to at least tie the game with runners on first and second with one out in the top of the seventh inning. But Lady Cougars relief pitcher Caley Pyles got the next two batters out to get out of the jam and end the game.

Vidalia (3-1) returns to Monroe Tuesday when the Lady Vikings play at Neville.
