Park View High School edged the Lady Comets in soccer, 2-1, in non-district action Tuesday night.

The Dragons got two first half goals and made the advantage stand up. HCHS got its only goal in the second half on a penalty kick from Cami Reese.

Park View got its second goal at the 6:25 mark of the first half, after scoring the first goal of the night at the 39:50 mark. HCHS scored its lone goal in the second half.

Park View had six shots on goal and eight saves. HCHS had ten shots on goal, ten saves, and five corner kicks.

Halifax is 2-3 on the campaign.

Comet coach Sid Young said, “The big thing … we just didn’t have the intensity the first half.

“The second half, with the (improved) intensity … we played decent,” said Young.

HCHS had a stronger sense of urgency in the second half but also missed some scoring opportunities.

Park View is 2-0.

Hannah Conway scored both goals for the Dragons, both in the first half. PV coach Henry Ponton said, “We’re still learning. This was only our second match. Stamina is still an issue for us.

“We were hanging on there at the end, but all in all, we played better,” said the Dragons’ coach.

PV is trying to develop a young team to be competitive at this level. The Dragons were happy to get the game played, as inclement weather has been a factor in the early season preparations.
