ELIZABETH CITY, NC- Ohio Valley University scored six runs in the top of the seventh to rally past Elizabeth City State 16-11 Saturday afternoon at Pasquotank County High School.

In their half of the seventh the Vikings managed to get two on base before Justin Hooker grounded out to first base to end the game. There were seven lead changes in the game before the Scots’ scoring outburst in their final at bat.
The Vikings (0-2) will wrap of their three-game series with Ohio Valley tomorrow at 12 noon at Pasquotank County High School. For more information on ECSU Athletics, visit www.ecsuvikings.com.
