Symmes Valley scored twice in the fifth.

Brown was safe on an error and Tessa Wall reached on a throwing error putting runners at second and third. Kara Burcham hit into a fielder’s choice to score Brown and Wall scored on a wild pitch.

Two final runs scored in the sixth.

Ross doubled, moved up on a ground ball and came home on a hit by Brown. A wild pitch sent Brown to second and she scored on Wall’s base hit.
