The Halifax County High School varsity volleyball team fell to Patrick County Thursday night in Piedmont district action at home, three games to two.

Halifax had early momentum.

The Comets came out strong winning the first two games.

“We played really well in the first two games. We really played our style of game which was power at the net. We overpowered Patrick County with some excellent play from setter/hitter Gabrielle Spainhour. Gabby really came on strong with some power hits and came into her own with blocking. Gabby made some key blocks at the net and stopped the PC Offense,” said Comet head coach Tiffaney Bratton.

Games three and four were a struggle for the Lady Comets.

“We had to come from behind on several occasions and they are a strong team. PC came with a good offense with a good quick middle hitter. The quick middle hitter threw us off in games three and four. We failed to have any Power hits at the net which gave them ample opportunity to run their middle quick hits. We lost games three and four to Patrick County which set up a final game five,” said Bratton.

In game five, the Comets came out strong playing their game. Ultimately, HCHS fell short.

“We started with some great plays from the net. We also had some great serving from all of the players. The Comets seemed to lose momentum and could not close the game out. We had Patrick County 14-10 in a final match that would only go to 15 but we could not finish. Patrick County came back in the fifth game and defeated us after some missed plays on our part,” said Bratton.
