AID — The Symmes Valley Lady Vikings might have to switch to automatic after their clutch went out.

The Lady Vikings couldn’t get the key hit as they fell 6-3 to the Ashland (Ky.) Kittens Tuesday.

“We had them down and we make two errors in one inning. We got people in scoring position, but we couldn’t get a clutch hit,” said Lady Vikings coach Jeff “Odie” Estep.

Ashland had only three batters got to the plate in five innings. They had four batters in the first and nine in the sixth.

Ashland took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning only to have the Lady Vikings rally for two runs in the bottom of the inning.

Erica Corn singled, moved up on a wild pitch, and Emily Bowling had a two-out RBI double. Chelsea Wall followed with a run-scoring single.

The Kittens used two errors to score five runs in the sixth inning to take a 6-2 lead.

The Lady Vikings got a run in the bottom of the sixth.

Kayla Justice singled, Jessie Morris was safe on a fielder’s choice, and Kathryn Myers doubled home the run.
