Emporia slipped past the Halifax County National all-stars, 2-1, in Saturday’s lone Dixie Youth AA coach pitch all-star action at the Day Complex.

Emporia scored its first run in the second inning and added the eventual winning run in the fifth.

HC’s lone run came in the top of the second. Jacob Owen reached on a base hit and scored on a fielder’s choice.

The Nationals collected six hits, led by Peyton Johnson with two hits.

Emporia had seven hits. Marquea Stewart had two hits and scored the first run in the second inning. T.J. Brown collected two hits and scored the winning run.

On Friday, the Halifax County National AA coach pitch all-stars scratched out a 7-6 win over Halifax County American Friday night in the opening action in South Boston.

HC National scored twice in the second inning, one run in the third, and four in the fifth.

HC American had one run in the fourth, two in the fifth and three in the sixth inning.

The Nationals put together the key rally in their half of the fifth.

With one out, Conner Spells singled and Journee Smith homered. With two out, Colt Franklin, Peyton Johnson and Jacob Owen all hit singles and the Nationals had enough of a cushion to withstand a late rally attempt from the Americans.

HC American got a single in the sixth by Mark Reaves, followed by a Jonathan Thomas triple. Lucas Lewis then cracked a triple, followed by a Matthew Long two-bagger.

Nathan Dudley later singled but the Americans fell short.
