The Big Walnut softball team broke a 2-2 tie with a five-run fourth and never looked back, rolling to an 8-3 league win over visiting Canal Winchester Wednesday in Sunbury.

The Indians got a run back in the fifth, but the Eagles (2-5) scored again in the bottom half to smooth out the scoring summary.
