CHILLICOTHE — The Symmes Valley Vikings got out their key ring and found it full of key hits and key defensive plays.

The Vikings came up with key moments as they beat the Whiteoak Wildcats 8-7 on Wednesday at Veteran’s Stadium.

Dylan Pelletier went 3-4 as the Vikings had 11 hits. Tanner Mays was 2-3 and Dylan McFann spanked a triple.

“Pelletier hit the ball hard and played well in centerfield. Seth Jarrell made two of the best catches I’ve seen. He save two runs,” said Vikings’ coach Chad Renfroe.

The Vikings (8-1) took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first only to have Whiteoak scored three in the bottom of the inning.

McFann hit his two-run triple in the second inning to tie the game only to have Whiteoak get a run in its half of the inning to lead 4-3.

But Pelletier had an RBI single in a three-run third and Mays drove in a run in the fourth as the Vikings went up 7-4.

The Wildcats tied the game with a run in the fourth and two in the fifth.

Symmes Valley scored the winning run in the seventh when Jarrell singled, stole second base, went to third on a passed ball and scored on Pelletier’s base hit.

McFann got the win and Mitch Corn pitched the seventh for the save.
