The Halifax County High School jayvee baseball team is 3-3 overall, heading into Western Valley district action.

HCHS suffered a tough 7-6 loss to Amherst Wednesday.

“We were winning 5-3 until the last inning, where (Amherst) scored four runs off of errors and mental mistakes. Even though we lost, it was a good learning experience for these young guys. We know that’s a game we should have won, but realize that we have to stay in the game and focus all the way to the last out,” said Comet coach Robert Carter.

“We are okay with where we are, our loses have been against good teams. We are looking forward to playing teams in our district next week,” Carter said.

HCHS did not play Matoaca because of rain, ice and snow at the Comet field.

Halifax bolted to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning.

Jake Hughes and Kelonte Gutrich smacked back to back doubles. Dustin Fears, Arthur Watts and Kory Lenon singled, as Hughes, Gutrich and Fears scored.

Halifax picked up two more runs in the fourth, as Gutridge and Fears had timely singles.

Lennon scored in the seventh, as the Comets fell short. The Comets ultimately had eight hits, but could not overcome the game-changing four-run seventh inning rally by Amherst.
