MOREAUVILLE, La. — Trey Barnes had one of the best games of his high-school career Monday afternoon as he had four hits, including a home run and a double, and six runs batted in to lead Vidalia past Avoyelles 13-0 in a District 3-3A game.

That gives Barnes seven hits in seven at-bats with three home runs and 12 RBIs in Vidalia’s last two games. He went 3-for-3 with a pair of homers and six RBIs in a win over Block last Saturday.

The win gives Vidalia, 11-5 overall and 4-1 in District 3-3A, sole possession of first place in the district. The Vikings took it to Avoyelles’ pitchers in the five-inning game to the tune of 15 hits.

Mason Ozburn, who was the winning pitcher and threw a two-hitter on the mound, was 3-for-4 with a double. Seth Thompson and Cameron Boyette each went 2-for-3 with a home run, and John Brixey had a home run of his own. One of the Mustangs’ two hits off Ozburn was a double by Zack Lachuey.

WCCA 11, Bowling Green 3

FRANKLINTON, La. — By the time Bowling Green scored its first run of the game, it was after it had fallen behind 6-0, and the Buccaneers never recovered as the Rams ran past them Monday night.

WCCA (13-6) had six of its 12 hits go for extra bases — a home run by Brandon Simon, a triple by Randy Bell, two doubles by George Davis, a double by Corey Havard and a double by Brennan Bush. Winning pitcher Hayden Holden scattered three runs on eight hits in a complete-game performance.

Simon, Davis, Holden and Bell each went 2-for-4 while Havard was 2-for-3 to lead the Rams.

Three of the eight hits that Bowling Green got off Holden were by Lockhart, who went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles. Falks went 2-for-4 with a double for the Buccaneers.

The Rams scored two runs each in three of the first four innings to take control of the game and they scored four more runs in the top of the fifth to make it a 10-1 game.

Oak Forest 5, Centreville 4

AMITE, La. — Despite an 11-strikeout performance by Centreville’s Kyle Brown, the Tigers couldn’t score enough runs late and lost to the Yellow Jackets in an MPSA District 5-AA game.

The turning point of the ball game was when Oak Forest broke a 2-2 tie by scoring three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Centreville (3-13, 3-3) scored one run in the top of the sixth to make it a 5-3 score, but the Tigers’ rally fell short when winning pitcher Colton Lee allowed just one run to score in the top of the seventh.

Brown went 2-for-4 with a home run. For the Yellow Jackets, Grill had a home run and a double while Banos had a double among his two hits.
