VHS Picks Up 3 More Wins
The Vidalia High School softball Indians played three games last week and added three wins to their record. They played a close game with Emanuel County Institute on Tuesday in Twin City, and then won easily over Statesboro High, and Pike County. Tymber Harris threw a no-hitter against Statesboro at home on Thursday.
ECI almost made a late comeback against the Indians, but VHS held them off for a one-run victory. Vidalia got the scoring started in the top of the third inning when they put four runs on the board, but ECI bounced back in the bottom of the frame with two runs to close the lead to 4-2. VHS added a run in the top of the fourth inning to push the lead to 5-2, and they needed all of that. ECI scored twice in the fifth inning to close it to 5-4, but the Indians held over the next two innings to get the win. Emma Humphrey led VHS with 3 RBI’s in the game with Bailey Holland and Rileigh Robinson each adding 1 RBI. Holland got the win in the circle and recorded 8 strikeouts in the game.
With two runners on base in the bottom of the first inning, Tori Wright hit one through the right side to put the Indians on top 2-0. Madison Starr made it 4-0 with a drive into left field. Lydia Smith drove in another run with a loft liner into left, and then one more run came in on a passed ball for a 6-0 lead heading to the second inning. In the second inning Holland drove in two runs with a shot into center field to put VHS up 6-0 over Statesboro. The Indians added three more in the fourth inning as they took the win in five innings by the run rule, 11-0. Harris threw a no-hitter against 5A Statesboro with 7 strikeouts. Starr led VHS with 3 RBI’s, with Holland and Wright each adding 2 RBI’s.
It was another blowout for VHS as they handled Pike County on Saturday. The game was tied 1-1 after the first inning, but that was the only run that VHS allowed in the game. VHS plated five runs in the top of the second inning to push the lead to 6-1, and then added two in the third and three more in the fourth inning. That gave the Indians an 11-1 run-rule win in five innings.
Emma Vinson led VHS with 3 RBI’s, with Alli Taufmann and Humphrey both knocking in 2 runs. This week the Indians will be at Jeff Davis on Thursday for a Region contest at 6:00 p.m.
