The Halifax County High School jayvee boys basketball team is giving Comet fans a look at the future.

And if the players develop as well later as they have this year, it might be promising.

Halifax routed Park View Monday, 70-37, at home in the last appearance of the year in Blue Heaven.

Halifax scored 17 points in the first period, 14 in quarter no. 2, and then the Blues really got it going in the third period.

Halifax had a 23-point quarter, with 11 field goals, including one trey.

Eventually, the Comets, now 18-1, got 10 points from Nasir Word, 13 from Jaden Waller, nine from Nijay Ross, and 14 from Kameron Roberts.

Halifax kept the momentum going into the final period, hitting two treys and sinking seven baskets overall.

Halifax drained eight treys.

By contrast, Park View floundered offensively against the Comets and had only one quarter with double figure scoring. That came in the third, when Park View had 15 points.
