The Halifax County High School varsity baseball team split two games last week, defeating Gretna, 15-3, on Wednesday and then losing to Garden City, 4-2, on Friday.

Garden City got one run in the fourth, and then pulled out the win with a three-run sixth.

Control problems hurt the Comets in the sixth, as Garden City capitalized on five walks and a single to create the game-winning rally.

As for the Comet mound staff went, Seth Elliott pitched five innings, Patrick Barton pitched in the sixth and Ryan Powell got one out in the sixth and pitched the seventh inning.

The Garden City game was a scrimmage. Not counting this game in the Comet standings, HCHS is 4-3 overall this season.

Friday, the Comets scored only two runs - once in the second and one more in the third.

Tristan Howerton scored the lone run in the second, as Halifax capitalized on three walks, a single from Andrew Hamlett and a sacrifice.

HCHS added its second run in the third, capitalizing on a Patrick Barton single and a single by DH Avery Anderson.

Otherwise, HCHS could get little traction against Garden City, finishing with four hits.

Patrick Barton, A. Anderson and Hamlett singled, and Will Harris had a fourth inning double, although he was stranded.

In earlier action, HCHS swamped Gretna in non-district action. Thomas Cole pitched and got strong support from the Comet bats.
