Halimar Shipyard 10,
H.L. Bourgeois 3
Halimar Shipyard (Central Catholic) began its summer season with a 10-3 win against H.L. Bourgeois on the road Monday.
“It was good to get back on the field again,” Halimar coach Tyler Jensen said of his squad, who had just a little more than two weeks prior, played in the Class 1A title game. “I think we all needed a little time away, but it was good to be around everyone again. We weren’t all that sharp, but I expected us to be rusty. We competed and found a way to get it done. I look forward to the rest of the summer.”
Samuel Guarisco earned the win as he surrendered a hit, three walks and fanned seven in four innings of work.
Tyler Hoffpauir also pitched three innings and surrendered three runs — two earned — on three hits with four walks.
At the plate, Stefano Guarisco led the squad with a 2-for-3 performance, Bryson Barbier finished 2-for-4, Barron Courtney was 1-for-4 and Samuel Guarisco, 1-for-2.
Halimar will return to action today when it plays Trinity Tools (Covenant Christian) at Southland Field. Junior varsity action is set for a 5 p.m. start, while varsity play will follow at 7 p.m.
Trinity Tools edged Patterson, 2-1, in Swampland league action Monday in Patterson.
Despite the loss, Patterson got a complete-game effort from Sirbatian Charles. In seven innings, he surrendered two earned runs on eight hits with a walk and three strikeouts.
“Sirbatian was terrific on the mound last night and gave us every chance to win,” Patterson coach Ryan Jensen said. “We played good defense behind him and kept ourselves in the game.”
However, Jensen said a lack of execution on offense as well as base running mistakes hurt his squad.
“We left 12 men on base, the bases loaded (three) times,” he said. “I’m proud of the way we are competing as a team right now. Having so many young guys with very little to no varsity experience is going to present some frustrating nights, but we are just playing hard and trying to learn more and more every day.”
Trinity Tools scored a run each in the first and third innings.
Patterson scored its lone run in the fifth.
At the plate for Patterson, Charles finished 2-for-4 with an RBI, while Jamey Fabre was 2-for-3 with a run. Brennan Gouaux and Jake Lagrange each were 1-for-3 with a double, while Kenny Singleton was 1-for-2 and Bryce Beaubouef, 1-for-3.
Patterson will return to action today when it travels to face Jester’s Court (Central Lafourche). Junior varsity is set for a 5 p.m. start, while varsity will follow at 7 p.m.
