BEAVER — The Symmes Valley Lady Vikings don’t like playing on the road, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like winning on the road.

The Lady Vikings got another road win Thursday as they beat the Eastern Lady Eagles 9-4 in a Southern Ohio Conference game.

“It’s always good to get a league win, especially on the road,” Lady Vikings coach Jeff “Odie” Estep said.
