MONROE, La. — Neville High pitcher Meagan Lively limited Vidalia to just two hits and struck out 14 batters in a complete game as the Lady Tigers defeated the Lady Vikings Tuesday afternoon.
Neville scored its first run in the bottom of the second inning. It would remain that way until the Lady Tigers plated one run in the bottom of the fifth and they put the game away with two runs in the bottom of the sixth.
Vidalia’s only hits of Lively were singles by Katlyn Bertelsen and Taylor Rodgers. Neville was led by Shay Harris, who went 2-for-3, and Megan Long, who was 2-for-4.
Vidalia (3-2) travels to Jonesville on Thursday at 4 p.m. to take on Block.
Monterey 2, Block 1
MONTEREY, La. — Paige Bryan scattered six hits and struck out five batters in seven innings as the Monterey Lady Wolves held on to defeat the Block Lady Bears Tuesday afternoon.
The game was originally scheduled to be played at Block High School in Jonesville, but it was moved to Monterey because the recent wet weather left Block’s field unplayable.
Monterey scored both of its runs in the bottom of the first inning and after that it was a matter of holding on to that lead. Block scored its only run of the game in the top of the fourth inning.
Nikki Harbor went 2-for-3 and had two of the Lady Bears’ three doubles in the game. Karlee Woodruff led the Lady Wolves at the plate as she went 3-for-3.
Monterey (3-0) host Mangham at 4 p.m. Thursday. Block (1-2) plays at Vidalia on Thursday at 4 p.m.
