The Vidalia High School Indians softball team wrapped up their regular season last week. They hosted rival Toombs County on Tuesday and then traveled to Pierce County on Saturday to take on Pierce and Brantley County.
VHS picked up a run in the bottom of the first inning to take the early lead on the Bulldogs, but couldn’t get much going over the next two innings.
In the bottom of the fourth inning the Indians finally got something working. With Jesslyn Collins on third base. Emma Vinson came through with a single, and that was followed by a double by Madison Starr that put VHS up 3-0. Toombs did manage to put runners on base in several innings, but VHS kept them off the scoreboard. In the top of the seventh Toombs had two runners on, but a strikeout and a fly out gave the win to the Indians, 3- 0.
