Airline, Benton and Haughton lost games against tough opponents in the Ouachita Parish tournament in Monroe on Friday.

The Lady Vikings fell to undefeated Ouachita Parish 11-1, Haughton lost to Pineville 12-0 and Benton dropped a 6-4 decision to Cedar Creek.

Benton (6-6) scored three runs in the top of the sixth to cut a four-run Cedar Creek lead to one, but the Lady Cougars added a run in the bottom of the inning.

Makenzie Chaffin went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Abby Kent had two hits. Hallie Saintignan doubled.

Cedar Creek, which won its sixth in a row, reached the semifinals of the Class 1A playoffs last season.

Haughton (5-8) had only three hits against Pineville, a Class 5A quarterfinalist last season.

Airline (9-4) had a three-game winning streak snapped. Ouachita Parish, a Class 5A semifinalist last season, improved to 15-0.
