Park View vs Halifax (December 11)

The Comets of Halifax County High School used a balanced offensive attack to defeat the homestanding Dragons last Wednesday in a non-conference matchup at PVHS.

The Comets had nine players get on the scoreboard, and after outpointing PV 18-8 in the first period Halifax never looked back en route to the win.

The Dragons did manage to outscore Halifax in the second period, but it was a meager victory, 12-9 in favor of the Dragons. Josh Boyd nailed a pair of treys and added a point from the free throw line to pace the Dragons in the second. Halifax took a 27-19 lead into the locker room at the end of the first half.

The Comets opened the second half like a house afire, posting 22 points while holding Park View to just six. The outburst staked Halifax to a commanding 54-26 lead as the final frame began.

With the game pretty much decided, both teams took the opportunity to get some playing time for their respective benches in the fourth period and the Comets outscored Park View 9-3 for a final score of 63-29
