Halifax County Middle School rode a three-inning no-hitter tossed by Joshua Gunn and patience at the plate with 10 walks in a 15-0 win over Fieldale-Collinsville Middle School on Wednesday at Halifax County Middle School.
Halifax finished with four hits for the game, including a triple and double from Cameron Carson, and singles from Tyler Collins and Trey Comer, and they got off to a good start with a leadoff single by Collins in the first inning, where they scored four runs.
Carson’s triple highlighted a six-run second inning, where the Lions took a 9-0 lead, and Carson slugged a double and Comer a single in the third inning, where the Lions ended the game by adding their final five runs.
Gunn held the Cavalier bats at-bay for all three innings, allowing no runs on not hits with five strikeouts.
Halifax County played a good overall game in rebounding from an 11-1 loss to Ben Franklin Middle School on Monday, according to head coach Zach Carter.
“Defensively, we were solid, and Josh Gunn pitched well throwing strikes and pitching to contact,” said Carter.
“Offensively, we had our best game of the year so far, and we look to continue to improve there.
“There are some things that need to be ironed out, but those will be corrected with more field time.”
