Comets shut down GW in tournament

Halifax County High School varsity baseball sailed through first round action of the Piedmont District tournament Tuesday, shutting out GW-Danville, 11-0 at home.

Troy Ferrell cranked a second inning grand slam homer and two pitchers -— Ferrell and Jackson Lloyd — throttled GW.

Lloyd worked three innings and fanned seven. Lloyd, a sophomore moving up from the jayvees, had five strikeouts. GW had one hit and one walk in five innings.

The Comets moved on to district tournament semifinals action last night against Bassett at home.

Halifax is seeking the district tournament title, but these games have no direct bearing on the progress of the season. The Comets are hoping for a no. 1 regional seeding on the South end of the bracket. The seeding has not been announced yet.

The Comets are playing well and everyone got a shot to play Monday. Day said, “If we continue to hit the ball and play good defense, we’re going to be fine.”

Halifax is hoping to develop even more momentum and craft a path to the state Class 5 tournament.

Halifax scored four runs in the first inning, and then put GW away with a five-run second. The Comets had 11 hits, as Ferrell went three-for-three, with two doubles and the big blast. Alex Lowery went 2-for-2 with two runs scored.

Ferrell and Lowery had RBIs in the first inning, and Ferrell later scored on a wild pitch. Ferrell then sealed the deal in the second inning with one swing of the bat.
