Tournament season kicks off with softball beginning Friday / June 20, 2013
Four local softball divisions - the Darlings, Belles, Ponytails X-play, and Angels X-play - will be involved in district tournament softball action this weekend at the Bethune Complex in Halifax, beginning Friday.


There will be two games Friday night, with Motley taking on Halifax American at 8 p.m. and Brookneal against Halifax National at 6 p.m.

Charlotte County got an early bye and will play its first game Saturday. There are two games on Saturday, at 12:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.., with action continuing Sunday. This bracket could be settled Tuesday night or Wednesday.


There are four teams vying for the district title, including Brookneal, Motley, Charlotte County and Halifax County.

Two games are set for Friday, with Brookneal-Motley at 4 p.m. and Charlotte-Halifax Co. at 6 p.m. There will be two games Sunday, at 2 and 4 p.m., with more action Monday and Tuesday. This bracket could be settled on Tuesday or Wednesday.
