Vidalia falls to Avoyelles, Block wins

VIDALIA — The Vidalia Vikings nearly rallied from a double-digit halftime deficit, but Avoyelles scored a late touchdown to thwart the comeback as the Mustangs held on for a 38-24 win in an LHSAA District 3-3A game Friday night at Dee Faircloth Viking Stadium.

Vidalia trailed Avoyelles 22-8 at halftime. However, instead of allowing the opposition to turn the game into a blowout, the Vikings made a game of it and cut the Mustangs’ lead to 30-24 early in the fourth quarter. But the Mustangs’ touchdown and two-point conversion late in the game ended all hopes of Vidalia putting a halt to their losing streak, which now stands at six in a row.

Vidalia (2-6, 0-3) hits the road Friday at 7 p.m. when it visits Caldwell Parish.

Block 40, Northwood-Lena 0

LENA, La. — The Block Bears jumped out to a big lead in the first half and never looked back en route to a shutout win over the Northwood-Lena Gators Friday night to remain undefeated in LHSAA District 3-1A.

The Bears went into halftime with a commanding 32-0 lead. The first half only took about 40 minutes to play and the game was over in less than two hours because a running clock was used in the second half.

Block (3-5, 3-0) plays host to Montgomery at 7 p.m. Thursday.
