Prep softball roundups: Vidalia wins it in seventh against Avoyelles
VIDALIA — Laura Perilloux threw three straight scoreless innings, and Katelin Temple scored the game-winning run on a single by Megan Naquin with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning as the Vidalia Lady Vikings defeated the Avoyelles Lady Mustangs 2-1 Monday afternoon in an LHSAA District 3-3A game.
Perilloux came on in relief of starting pitcher Taylor Rodgers, who allowed one run on two hits and two walks and struck out five in four innings of work. The two combined to hold Avoyelles to just three hits in the game.
Meanwhile, Laura Lemoine did her best to give the Lady Mustangs an opportunity to win the game. The Lady Vikings didn’t get on the scoreboard until the bottom of the third inning, and it appeared like the game was going into extra innings before Vidalia won the game in dramatic fashion. Lemoine gave up two runs on four hits with one strikeout in six and two-thirds innings.
Temple, Katelynn Bertelsen and Mallory Wheeler each had a single, and Cassie Gonzales had one RBI on a groundout in the bottom of the third for the Lady Vikings.
