Lady Vikings rip Jena Tuesday

Published 10:45 am Wednesday, March 28, 2007

A two-run home run by Mary Katherine Golden in the bottom of the third inning broke a 3-3 tie as the Vidalia Lady Vikings defeated the Jena Lady Giants 8-4 Tuesday afternoon.

Golden’s home run gave Vidalia a lead they would never give up in the final four innings of play. She also had another key hit in the game – a two-run triple in the bottom of the first inning as the Lady Vikings turned a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead.

Jena (12-13) score its final run of the game in the top of the fourth inning to make it a 5-4 game, but Katlyn Wilson’s two-run triple in the bottom of the fourth gave Vidalia (17-8) some much-needed breathing room.
