Paced by the play of freshmen Alexis Carter and Jaedyn Jamison, Franklin County doubled the count on Halifax County Friday night in a 54-27 Piedmont District girls varsity basketball triumph over the Comets at Samuel M. Hawkins-Central Gymnasium.

Each completed a double-double: Carter claimed 12 rebounds, while Jamison grabbed 10.

FCHS led by five points, 14-9, after the first quarter, and the Eagles increased the spread to 10 points, 27-17, at intermission after taking the second stanza 13-8.

The difference was 16 points, 39-23, at the end of the third period after a 12-6 spurt by the Eagles in that quarter.

FCHS secured the victory with a 15-4 surge in the final frame.

Deaundre Jeffress paced the Comets with 10 points and three other players scored: Nichole Gillard with nine, Tamiara Logan with six and DeMiesha Canada with two.

Also scoring for the Eagles were Ilene Hurley with seven points, Alex Prillaman and Shaianne Ermini each with five, Tamia Starkey and Syriah Maness each with four and Morgan McGuire, Ta’mya Robertson and Chelsie Adams each with two.

Halifax made three 3-point field goals: one each by Jeffress, Gillard and Logan. Hurley swished two 3-pointers for the Eagles and Prillaman hit one.
