PORTSMOUTH — The Symmes Valley Vikings had 12 runs and 12 hits. The Portsmouth Clay Panthers had one run and one hit.

Pitting the numbers against each other meant the Vikings rolled to a 12-1 over Clay Wednesday in a Southern Ohio Conference game.

“The defense was good and Thompson threw well. We walked too many, but it’s a work in progress,” said Vikings’ coach Chad Renfroe.

Lane Wilson was 3-3 and Seth Jarrell 3-4 with two doubles to lead the 12-hit attack for the Vikings (4-1, 3-0).

The Vikings blew the game open with eight runs in the first inning. Dillon McFann and Jarrell had RBI doubles and Tanner Mays and Cameron Meadows had run-scoring singles to highlight the uprising.

Trent Thompson got the win with the five-inning one-hitter.
