The Dixie Boys district tournament opened up a day late Tuesday afternoon at the Troy Sportsplex, but the host Trojans did not start until after press time. The Troy recap will be in tomorrow’s paper, but here is what happened in other action in the tournament:

Davis Swicord and Ethan Holland scored in the fourth inning, Brandon Green scored in the fifth inning and Marsh scored in the seventh for Dothan.
Columbia-Webb had a shutout going until the seventh inning, but Luverne cracked the goose egg with one run in the bottom of the inning. Columbia-Webb scored one in the first, two in the third and three in the fifth.
Patrick Curry crossed home plate in the first inning, Jesse Driver and LaDarius Bryant scored in the third and Curry, Bryant and Joshua Clark scored in the fifth inning for Columbia-Webb.
