Lady Comets extend season with win over Orange

SoVaNow.com / May 18, 2017
The Halifax County High School varsity softball team has now given itself two chances to advance to the Region 5-A north playoffs.

Halifax routed Orange County, 11-0 Monday in opening round action of the Conference 16 playoffs. Halifax was on the road Wednesday playing reigning 5-A state champion Atlee.

The conference has a game for third place. So no matter the outcome Wednesday, Halifax will play again. Either in the championship game, or for third place.

Halifax showcased a robust offense Monday, collecting 15 hits. The Comets scored four runs in the second inning, one in the third, one in the fourth and then five in the six-hit sixth inning.

Karina Velazquez belted out a 3-4 performance, while MacKenzie Lawter, Megan Watts, Carol Fears and Anna Clowdis had two hits apiece.

Fears also delivered a clutch performance in the circle. She fanned five, yielded three hits and walked one.

Halifax also had a quality defensive outing, with no errors Monday.

The Comets, who improved to 12-7, got started early with four runs in the second inning. Lawter cracked an RBI double, while Lauryn Chappell had a RBI single and Katie Cole had an RBI groundout. Velazquez also had a triple.

The Comets put it away against Orange in the sixth, as Cole had a two-RBI hit, along with RBI hits from Rose Spainhour, Watts and Fears.
