KVPI Sports is following our two Ville Platte Dixie Youth teams competing in the Dixie Youth regional tournaments being played in Ruston, Louisiana. Both our Dixie Minors, the Super Tens, and the Dixie Majors, the 12 year old all stars, are participating in these tournaments. Both team first day games were cancelled Friday because of the heavy rains that fell in Ruston so tournament officials doubled up games on Saturday.
Here is a recap: The Ville Platte Super Ten all stars played game one at noon Saturday and beat Blanchard 11-0. Their second game was Saturday night at 9:00pm and they beat Gonzales 10-0.Sunday night, the Ville Platte Super Tens beat Patterson 18-4.
