AID — That was the long and short of it.

The Portsmouth Notre Dame Lady Titans used the bunt and eight Symmes Valley errors to beat the Lady Vikings 7-1 Wednesday in a Southern Ohio Conference game.

“We couldn’t field the bunt. They bunted 10 times and we only played two of them. We’ve been a good fielding team. It was just one of those nights,” said Lady Vikings’ coach Jeff “Odie” Estep.

Tori Harr pitched a four-hitter for the Lady Titans. She struck out seven and walked three.

Kaitlyn Payne took the loss. She fanned seven, walked five and gave up eight hits.

The Lady Vikings had four hits. Hannah Maynard had a triple and Payne added a double.

The Lady Vikings host their annual “Valley of Thunder” on Friday at Saturday.
