LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Highlights and Scores from some of our local coverage teams that were in action tonight!

Barbe and Sam Houston baseball headlined the action tonight, as the two met at Joe Miller Ballpark to renew their historic rivalry. The Buccaneers and Broncos came into the game ranked one and two respectively in Class 5A according to the GeauxPreps.com power ratings. Barbe was also ranked the No. 1 in the nation by MaxPreps and Sam Houston cracked the Top 25 a week ago.

It was a 2-1 game going into the bottom of the fifth when the Bucs would score five runs to take control of the game. Mississippi State commit Jack Walker tossed a complete game for Barbe recording 14 strikeouts as the Buccaneers won, 8-2.

In Class 3A baseball, Iowa was supposed to host South Beauregard, but the game was moved to Longville due to weather from the night before. The Knights’ bats were on fire, bringing across 14 runs, 8 of which came from Grand Slams from Alec McCain and Rett Bowman. Bowman also threw 6 1/3 innings and struck out six batters. The Knights defeat Iowa, 14-4.

In softball, there were two high-scoring games with South Beauregard and Sam Houston winning both their games, scoring 14 and 11 runs respectively. Sam Houston’s Brylie Fontenot and Destini Wold hit home runs for the Broncos and Southside’s Raeley Duplechin hit one for the Sharks.
