LUCASVILLE — A combined shutout performance on the mound and early runs helped the Valley Indians secure a 4-0 home win over South Webster in Southern Ohio Conference Division II play.

Valley (9-0, 9-0 SOC II) combined for seven hits as a team — as senior Chase Morrow and freshman Jaekyn Ridout both had a pair of hits.

Morrow drove in one of the Valley runs in the bottom of the third — scoring Ridout with 1-out to give the Indians a 2-0 lead.

A two RBI single by junior George Arnett gave Valley a 4-0 cushion in the bottom of the fourth.
