By Lisa Soileaux
In a critical district contest Tuesday afternoon at Gossen Park, Livonia used 11 hits while scoring 12 runs in four innings for a 12-4 win over the Wolves.
The loss places Rayne at 4-3 in district play, a complexing position for the Wolves’ post-season plans.
The Wolves were able to muster only six hits during the ballgame, those coming from Grant Menard, Grant Abshire, Brant Broussard, Blaise Meche and Hunter Keely (2).
Keely was tagged with the loss on the mound for the Wolves recording five strikeouts while giving up six hits, four walks and six runs. Finishing the game was Jacob Hebert with one strikeout, two walks and six runs.
In a makeup game from Thursday, the Wolves hosted Northwest Monday and claimed an 18-0 shutout win over the Raiders.
Kameron Falcon got the win for the Wolves throwing four strikeouts in four innings. Tyler LeJeune finished out the game with two strikeouts in the fifth inning.

During weekend action, the Wolves hosted Breaux Bridge in a non-district game coming up short against the Tigers, 2-0.
