Jayvee girls give good effort

SoVaNow.com / January 21, 2013
GW-Danville swept both ends of the girls’ basketball doubleheader Saturday, but the Halifax County High school jayvees’ effort was more competitive.

The GW jayvee squad downed HCHS, 49-34.

The visiting Eagles seized early momentum, leading 12-7 at the end of the first period. GW held a 14-8 advantage in the second period and went to the halftime break leading, 26-15.

Halifax staged a strong rally in the third period, outscoring GW 14-6.

Halifax found some of its best offensive balance of the night and closed within three, 32-29, at the end of the period.

But the Comet girls faded in the fourth period.

Ghanija Gooden had five points - including one trey and a two-point basket

- for the lone Comet scoring in the final period.

That was not nearly enough, as GW outscored the Comets, 17-5, in the fourth.

Gooden had most of the offensive leadership for HCHS and finished with 15 points. Timonee McCargo added seven, while Kaylan Palmer had five. Nyjah Torain had four.

On Wednesday, the jayvee girls defeated Heritage, 55-33, in non-district action.

Gooden scored 11 in the first quarter and went on to a game-high 17 points.

Torian added 12 points and Mecca Carter scored seven. Alasha Edmondson had six.

Five Comets scored in the first period.
