Trenton Moore was 3-3 to lead a 9-hit attack for the Pointers. Anthony Ross was 2-3 while Kyle Hughes had three runs batted in.

Chris Brown and Ross drove in two runs each and Seagraves had an RBI double. Beau Weed, Tyler Smith and Moore each had an RBI.

Cody Bland had both of Symmes Valley’s hits.
