CHILLICOTHE — The Fairfield Lady Lions travelled to Veterans Memorial Stadium in Chillicothe for a softball/baseball doubleheader with the Lucasville Valley Indians. Fairfield continued its relentless offense pounding out 15 hits to defeat the Lucasville Valley Lady Indians 21-5 in five innings.

The Fairfield Lady Lions (11-2 overall and 5-0 in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference) offense had six players with two hits each in the 15-hit parade including six for extra bases. Emmi Vance hit her second home run of the season in the third inning.

After a scoreless first inning, Fairfield erupted for 15 runs in the second inning. Both teams played through a light rain in the third inning that affected both pitchers’ ability to grip the ball.
