Comets collect wins with top goal in mind / May 10, 2018
The Halifax County High School varsity baseball team is collecting wins, with the goal of landing either a no. 1 or 2 seed in regional action.

Halifax is not expected to have trouble with Martinsville, and the Comets rolled to a 12-0 win Tuesday night.

Troy Ferrell picked up the win and Colt LaRue finished with a very strong performance. The hurlers combined on a one-hitter. Ferrell fanned six and LaRue struck out the side in a brief one-inning stint.

Halifax had two games remaining in the regular season, including a trip to Franklin County last night and the regular season home finale with Magna Vista tonight.

Halifax is now 14-4. The Comets will play in the upcoming Piedmont District tournament, but that will have no bearing on the regional seeding.

Halifax was expecting a tough challenge last night in Rocky Mount.

Comet assistant Shawn Torian said yesterday, “(FCE) will be one of our toughest tasks.we’re going to see where we stand (after the trip to play the Eagles).”

Torian said it’s impossible to get a read on the offense, despite a mercy rule win. Torian said the Comets have room to improve.

“Pitching wise, we’re going to be ok. Defense-wise, we’re going to be OK. Our offense has to carry the load now. Once regional competition gets here, we’ve got to hit,” said Torian.

Halifax collected 14 hits in the win over the Bulldogs, including a 2-for-3, two runs scored, one RBI performance from leadoff hitter Dylan Clark.

First baseman Shaun Perkins went 3-for-3 with a run scored.
