Comets have busy week ahead
SoVaNow.com / March 25, 2013The Halifax County High School varsity baseball team has a 3-2 record, heading into a very busy week.
The Comets meet Southern Alamance tomorrow, followed by Gretna on Wednesday and Garden City, N.Y. Friday.
HCHS has wins so far this season over Gretna, LCA and C.D. Hylton. The Comets have lost to Leesville and Amherst County.
HCHS dropped a tough road loss to Amherst County Friday, 5-4.
This was a tremendous game, coach Kelvin Davis said. Amherst has an excellent pitching staff.
The Comets had eight hits and played very competitive baseball. Will Harris went 3-for-3 and belted a solo homer in the Halifax first inning. Tyler Stephens had two hits and Patrick Barton, Andrew Hamlett and Ryan Yates had one hit apiece.
Halifax battled all afternoon.
Comet pitcher Seth Elliott struggled in the fifth, as he hung a pair of changeups and Amherst rallied with the longball to grab a 5-2 lead.
HCHS tried to make a game-changing rally in the top of the seventh. Yates walked and Harris singled. Stephens just missed a home run and had to settle for a RBI double. A fourth Comet run scored on a double play grounder, and Halifax stranded the tying run at third.
In the Comet fourth, Harris doubled and Stephens singled, and HCHS got a run home on a double steal.
