Lady Comets shut out by Patrick County

South Boston News
SoVaNow.com / March 31, 2014
The Halifax County High School varsity softball team fell to Patrick County in Piedmont District action Friday, getting shut out 6-0.

Halifax coach Melanie Saunders lamented a tough day for the Comets.

“Played very flat ... really struggling at the plate ... not making adjustments at the plate,” she said.

The Lady Comets “made some defensive errors that we normally would not make,” she said.

Comet hurler Taylor Barnes started, and worked three innings. Sidney McLamb came in and pitched two innings. Barnes pitched the final two innings.

Ashley Watts hit well for the Comets, finishing two-for-three on the afternoon.

“We need some leadership on this team. We really miss our leadership from last year. We need some girls to step up and take that leadership role,” Saunders said.

In earlier action, Taylor Barnes and Park View’s Odicci Alexander both performed well in a pitcher’s duel Thursday in South Boston.

One hit - a two-run homer in the fifth by Comet catcher Ashley Watts - made the difference as HCHS prevailed, 2-0.

With one out in the Comet fifth, Kye-Neisha Logan doubled and Watts followed with a blast to break the game open.

HCHS finished with two hits, while Comet batters fanned 11 times.

Barnes kept the Dragons in check.

She allowed six hits and struck out nine.
