KINGMAN — It was a couple of heart-breakers for the Smoky Valley softball team on Friday when it took on Kingman in a battle of unbeaten teams.

In Game 1, the Vikings scored three runs in the top of the seventh inning to take a 6-4 lead, only to see the Eagles answer with three of their own for a 7-6 walk-off win.

Kingman led 2-1 until the sixth inning when Smoky Valley scored two runs, but the Eagles answered with two in the bottom of the inning.

Kelsie Anderson had a double and three RBIs to lead the Vikings. Megan Sample took the loss.

The second game was more of the same. Smoky Valley tied the game with a run in the seventh, but the Eagles eventually scored the winner in the ninth for another walk-off win, 8-7.

Offensive leaders for the Vikings were Teagan Miller (two RBIs), Haeli Maas (two hits), Anderson (three hits, two runs), Katie Bellah (a triple, two RBIs) and Sample (two hits).

The Vikings are now 4-2 and play Tuesday at Sterling.
