Jayvee softball blows past Amherst

SoVaNow.com / April 08, 2013
The Halifax County High School softball squad defeated Amherst, 6-1, in non-district action Thursday, before inclement weather blew into the area and ended the varsity game prematurely.

The Comets alllowed only one Amherst run, which scored on a wild pitch in the fourth. Otherwise, HCHS kept Amherst bottled up, allowing two hits.

Sidney McLamb pitched five innings, working a complete game for the Comet girls. She fanned eight and limited the Lancers to two hits.

The softball jayvees are now 6-0 on the season.

HCHS scored twice in the fourth, as Gabby Spainhour had a double to plate two runs.

HCHS added five in the fifth. Lauren Chaney cracked a double, Kirsten Doss reached on an error, and later McLamb reached on a fielder’s choice. Megan Watts singled and HCHS capitalized on back to back walks, scoring five runs in the inning.
