Eagles fall in extras in regular-season finale

Cecilie Elliott's two-out single in the top of the ninth inning produced the game's lone run Tuesday as Halifax County edged Franklin County, 1-0, in a Piedmont District softball clash at the Benjamin Franklin Middle School Softball Complex.

Halifax's victory is its second this season over the Eagles (9-3 in the Piedmont District, 13-6 overall) and its fifth in a row.

The contest was the final regular-season game of the 2015 campaign for both teams.
