The Halifax County Middle School softball team gave fans an exciting start to the season with an 8-7 walk-off victory over Mecklenburg County in its season opener Wednesday night. 

It was a wire-walk contest the whole way through with the two sides locked into a 7-7 tie entering the bottom of the seventh inning. However, the Lions were determined not to play extra innings and did what was necessary to pick up the win.
