Clay 12, Symmes Valley 1 F5
Clay earned a five inning SOC I win over Symmes Valley Wednesday 12-1 to clinch at least a share of the SOC I regular season title.
“I was really proud of Shaden Malone again tonight,” said Clay head coach Marc Cottle following Wednesday’s win. “He came in with the bases loaded, one out and got us out of it by only giving up one run. After that, he pounded the zone and didn’t give up another run. Jaden, Evan, and Reece led the way from the plate with some great at bats. This gives us at least a share of the SOC championship, I’m really proud of the boys for all of their hard work and determination.”
Evan Woods led Clay at the plate by finishing 2/2 with three RBI and two runs scored in the win while Jaden Jessee and Garrett Beegan also contributed two RBI a piece in the win. From the mound, three different Panthers pitchers combined to allow just one hit including Shaden Malone who earned the win for Clay over Symmes Valley Wednesday.
