Halifax takes page from HCHS playbook in runner up effort / July 12, 2017

Taking a cue from the Halifax County High School varsity baseball team, the Halifax County Little League baseball team battled its way to state runner-up honors Monday in Scottsburg.

Halifax suffered an opening night loss Friday, dropping an 8-4 decision to Virginia Beach. From there, Halifax eliminated Fort Hunt on Saturday, 12-7 and then won twice on Sunday, taking a 8-5 win over Phoebus and an 18-4 rout of Atlee.

Halifax then downed Strasburg, 18-9, Monday morning before falling in the title round to Alexandria, 23-6.

Halifax, putting on a strong offensive show, cracked 16 hits in the win over Strasburg. Jackson Newton and Trevor Hazelwood had three hits apiece. Both players cracked homers in the win.

Colin Saunders, Kamron Turbeville, Daval Ballou and Kolby Fisher each had two hits. Cameron Brigham added a homer.

The key was a six-run rally in the sixth inning. Halifax fueled that outburst with a two-run homer off the bat of Brigham and a three-run shot from Hazelwood.

Halifax blistered Strasburg in the seventh inning with seven runs, sparked by a two-run homer from Jackson Newton and two-run doubles from Hazelwood and Turbeville.

Halifax earlier got past Phoebus and Atlee, slamming three homers in the win over Phoebus and five against Atlee.

Halifax had 17 hits in the win over Atlee, with Christian Midkiff going 4-for-4 with two homers. Turbeville had two homers and went 3-for-3.

Turbeville led Halifax with three hits, including a homer, in the victory over Phoebus. Colin Saunders, Hazelwood and Kolby Fisher supplied two hits apiece.

Halifax later collected seven hits and a homer in the decisive loss to Alexandria. Newton had two hits and Ballou had a three-run homer early.
