Battlefield continued its march through the Northwest Regionals, using timely offense and solid fundamentals to end Halifax County’s baseball season, 6-3, Wednesday at the Comet field. HCHS’ most consistent pitcher, Tyler Lewis, was hampered at times by shaky defense, but Battlefield (15-10) also did a good job of capitalizing on its scoring opportunities. The Bobcats seized decisive momentum in the fifth inning, when they scored four times to extend their lead to 6-2.

Between that miscue and the seventh inning, when the runner assigned to Long scored to make it a 7-4 Comet final, Long kept AHS off-balance and got key outs when he needed them most.
