Girls soccer 1-0 with two rainouts / March 18, 2009
The HCHS varsity girls’ soccer team is 1-0, with two rainouts, to start the season.

Halifax beat Heritage in scrimmage action last week, winning 3-1. Then, the Comets beat Bluestone 4-1 in the official season opener.

HCHS had a long wait to start the season opener, and the Comets started slowly. HCHS did get two scores in the first half, as Sarah Rosche scored off an assist from Emarie Skelton. Wishee Marable scored off a second assist from Skelton.

HCHS led 2-0 at halftime.

Bluestone got on the board early in the second half, but Halifax responded with two more goals. Megan Rosche had a goal off a direct kick, and Marable scored again off an assist from Amanda Dennis.

Halifax was set to play at home last night against Bluestone for its only action of the week.

“They’re starting to improve. I wish we could have played all of our games. That would have helped us develop more. But I think we’re making some progress, despite the weather,” said coach Sid Young.
