PV softball jayvees drop doubleheader

South Boston News
Kristen Bradley lets the pitch fly for the PV jayvees.
SoVaNow.com / April 24, 2013
The Park View jayvee softball team lost a doubleheader to the Halifax County Lady Comets, 7-6 and 16-5, in non-district action Wednesday.

In game two, HCHS started with a three-run, one-hit first inning, followed by a boisterous nine-run, four-hit second. HCHS capped off the 16-5 rout with a four-run, five hit fourth after getting one hit in the scoreless third.

Park View had five hits in the loss.

The Dragon girls got one run in the second, as Brooke Tanner scored on a fielder’s choice. Hayli Chandler then delivered an RBI off an error from the Halifax defense in the two-run third. Haley Peebles had a key triple and Miranda Curry had an RBI single to spark the two-run fourth, but Park View could not keep pace.

In earlier action that day, the Comet jayveess scratched out a one-run decision, 7-6.

HCHS had four runs in the second, one in the fifth and two in the sixth to win the game.

Park View was very competitive in the first game of the twinbill.

The Dragons got one run in the first when Haley King reached on an error and scored on an RBI groundout from Curry. Park View had a four-run, three-hit second inning, sparked by singles from Curry, Bradley and Chandler.

Peebles later scored in the sixth, but Park View fell short.
