The second inning produced another seven runs as singles by Kelsey Keaner, Pulley, Harris, Allen, along with walks and errors upped the score to 17-0.

The Lady Vikings closed out the scoring with two runs in the third.

Up next for the Lady Eagles is a trip to Creeksville to take on the Lady Rams of Northampton County-East.
