|Patriots over Block, 5-0|
The Franklin Parish Patriots (6-8) will play in the Caldwell Parish High School tournament starting Friday in Columbia when they take on Forrest High School at 4 p.m. and the Caldwell Spartans at 7 p.m. The tournament will run through Saturday with the Patriots playing Grant High School at 12 p.m. followed by the nightcap against the Mangham Dragons.
"For us to be successful in this tournament, we have to continue to pitch well," Franklin Parish head coach Lynn Middleton said. "We got away from doing the things that we do when we did not have as good a record at the beginning of the year."
The Patriots have won three-games in a row since a slow start to the season. In the Mathew Johnston Memorial Tournament held at FPHS this past weekend, the Patriots took home the championship after beating district rivals, the Bastrop Rams 6-5 in the championship game Saturday night. The Patriots also beat the Rayville Hornets 12-7 and the Block Bears 10-0 on their way to winning the tournament.
Brian Moroni is leading the team with a .325 batting average, Moroni came up with big run scoring hits throughout the tournament. Coaches are also pleased with the progress Trent Williams has made this season at the plate for the Patriots.
"Brian (Moroni) is coming off some illness problems and a shoulder injury," Middleton said. "He has hit the ball real well for us. I think Trent Williams is also doing a great job at the plate when we get runners on they are scoring."
The Patriots outscored opponents 28-12 on the weekend. The game against Forrest to begin the Caldwell tournament is the fourth meeting between the two schools this season. FPHS is 2-1 against Forrest with wins in each of their last two games after Forrest beat the Patriots 17-3 in the second game of the 2010 season.
