The HCHS varsity softball team cruised to a 9-1 win over Heritage in its season opener Wednesday.

HCHS got plenty of offense early, scoring two runs in the first inning, four in the second, two in the fifth and one in the sixth.

Stephanie Clark got the Comets started in their half of the first with a walk. She later scored on a Johanna Spencer RBI double. Paige Rickman followed with an RBI single.

HCHS, for all practical purposes, broke it open in the second inning with a four-run, two-hit inning.

Christine DeGeorgis, batting second, delivered a key two-run triple. Clark also had an RBI double and Betty Rose had an RBI flyout.

HCHS added two runs in the fifth, on four hits. Rose had a double and Lauren Daniel was just part of the production there with an RBI single.

Halifax finished with nine hits, a decent start.

HCHS kept Heritage effectively bottled up all day. The Pioneers had two hits and one run in the first inning, but failed to generate any offense from there.
