After being shut down by rainy weather for most of the week, two local Swampland Baseball League teams finally got a break and was able to play on Thursday.

The Terrebonne High-based Seeca picked up a 7-2 win over Berwick High-based Taco Bell during Thursday’s action at Tiger Field in Houma.

Seeca finished with nine hits and scored three runs each in the first and third innings to take control of the game.

Leaders at the plate for Seeca (5-1 overall) were Cole Lovell (3-for-3, three RBIs), Jacob Collins (one hit, two RBIs), Braxston Lovell (2-for-3) and Zach Guidry (RBI).

Braxston Lovell pitched 4 2/3 innings for Seeca, allowing one hit, two runs, two earned runs, five walks and striking out seven batters. Cole Lovell pitched 2 1/3 innings and allowed three walks while striking out four batters.

Taco Bell finished with one hit and dropped to 1-6 overall.


While Secca and Taco Bell were able to play their game on Thursday, eight other teams weren’t so lucky as thunderstorms and wet field conditions forced several games to get postponed.

Games postponed due to weather on Thursday were Thibodaux (Reeco Rental and Supply) at Assumption (LA Contractors/Barbera Chevrolet), South Terrebonne (South Louisiana Bank) at Ellender (Phillies), H.L. Bourgeois at Central Lafourche (Jester’s Court) and E.D. White Catholic (Synergy Bank) at South Lafourche (Grand Isle Shipyard).

No makeup dates have been set for any of the postponed games on Thursday.

Weather has caused problems for several Southland teams this week.

Thibodaux (Reeco Rental and Supply) and South Lafourche (Grand Isle Shipyard) tried to play a doubleheader on Wednesday in Galliano before area rains postponed it with no makeup dates set.

The Berwick (Taco Bell) at South Lafourche (Grand Isle Shipyard), South Terrebonne (South Louisiana Bank) at Thibodaux (Reeco Rental and Supply) and E.D. White Catholic (Synergy Bank) at Terrebonne (Seeca) games were all washed out Tuesday with no makeup dates set yet.

One game -- Assumption (LA Contractors/Barbera Chevrolet) at Central Lafourche (Jester’s Court) – started on Tuesday and completed the first inning before it was stopped because of the rain. LA Contractors/Barbera Chevrolet led 2-1 when the game was called. No date has been set for the resumption of the game.

On Monday, two Swampland games -- H.L. Bourgeois at South Terrebonne (South Louisiana Bank) and E.D. White Catholic (Synergy Bank) at Ellender (Phillies) -- were postponed due to rain with no make-up dates set. Three Swampland games were played as scheduled.

After the opening week completed with no rainouts, Week 2 was plagued by rain with six games, including the entire June 5 slate, postponed due to inclement weather.
