Lady Comets deliver inspirational effort
SoVaNow.com / January 10, 2013The Halifax County High School varsity girls’ basketball team delivered an inspirational effort Tuesday, losing a heartbreaker to the PH girls, 48-45.
PH, now 6-8 overall and 1-1 in the district, outscored Halifax in the third period, 22-9, and capitalized on that surge to pull out the win.
Halifax, trailing 40-34 at the end of three periods, outscored PH in the final period, 11-8. But PH staved off the late Comet bid.
Halifax held PH to only two field goals in the final period, although the visitors connected on four-of-six free throws. Janiyah Logan had six points in the final period.
HCHS is still depleted, personnel wise, although Lakia Martin returned and had two points.
Alexia Tucker led HCHS with 15 points, while Che’lese Bowman had a pair of early 3s and finished with eight.
J. Logan had eight, and Brittani Boxley had four.
Halifax had a bit of inconsistency, scoring 18 points in a strong opening period. The Comets had seven in the second period, nine in the third and 11 in the final quarter.
Halifax is now 0-3 in the Western Valley District, but the Comets had a sharply improved overall game in this loss to PH. Halifax bounced back with a determined effort after a very tough loss last week to William Fleming.
