Prep softball roundup: Vidalia shut out by Jena

VIDALIA — The up-and-down season for the Vidalia High School Lady Vikings continued Tuesday afternoon as they could not do anything right in a 12-0 loss to the Jena Lady Giants in five innings in an LHSAA District 3-3A game.

Taylor Yates pitched three innings for Vidalia and struck out just one batter. Taylor Rodgers went two innings and fanned two batters. Meanwhile, Jena’s Darian Thacker pitched all five innings and allowed just three hits to go with six strikeouts.

Jena led Vidalia 1-0 after one inning of play before breaking the game wide open with six runs in the top of the second inning to make it a 7-0 game. The Lady Giants added two runs in the top of the third inning and three more in the top of the fourth.

Kelsey Bradford went 4-for-4 with three runs batted in and Braegan Burlew was 2-for-4 with two RBIs.

Vidalia (3-5, 1-2) plays at Monterey High School at 4 p.m. today.

Forest 1, Monterey 0

FOREST, La. — Dakota Helmer scored on a passed ball in the bottom of the third inning and that proved to be the game-winning run as the Forest Lady Bulldogs defeated the Monterey Lady Wolves 1-0 Tuesday afternoon.

The game was a pitching duel between Monterey’s Paige Bryan and Forest’s Bailey Norsworthy. But one pitch that Bryan would like to have back turned out to be the difference.

Norsworthy was the winning pitcher after holding Monterey to just three hits with four strikeouts and no walks in a complete-game performance. Bryan allowed no earned runs on five hits and one walk to go with five strikeouts.

Tiffany Weeks had two of the Lady Wolves’ three hits and finished 2-for-3 at the plate.

Monterey (4-5) plays host to Vidalia in a make-up game today at 4 p.m.
