The Halifax County High School girls varsity soccer team is off to a sluggish 2-4 start on the season.

Bassett defeated Halifax 5-0 Tuesday night at home, getting its last goal in the waning seconds of this Piedmont District match.

Comet coach Sid Young put the loss in perspective.

“They’ve (Bassett) got a good team. We played well at times. We just made some mistakes, we were out of shape. You could tell that,” said Young.

Halifax was coming off a 10-day break for the spring break period.

That interruption hampered the Comets. Halifax also had three volunteer practices with perhaps about ten people showing up, Young said.

Young had some positive efforts to report.

Erin Glass played well at sweeper, and Leigh-Anne McCormick also had a good outing at stopper. Keeley Nelson also had a fine effort at midfieler.

Madelyn Haskett also played well at the midfielder spot. “A number of kids played well,” said Young, adding that Carey Cole played well in the defender spot.

Halifax won’t be back in action the rest of the week, but next week the Comets will be facing a crowded slate.

JAYVEES - The Halifax County High School jayvee girls soccer team blanked Bassett Tuesday night at home, 2-0.

Cristina Seamster and Carrie Midkiff had two first half goals. The Lady Comets had 23 shots to four for Bassett and kept their unbeaten streak intact.

Halifax got everyone into the game. The Comets did a good job controlling the tempo.

Maddie Freshour had an excellent scoring opportunity in the second half with the shot hitting the right upright.

Overall, Halifax had a quality outing.
