Halifax got two goals from Gabby Nelson, including one in each half. Cami Reese and Lucy Morrison added the other goals for the Comets, who improved to 9-6-1.
Sabrina Amos started as keeper, and then in the second half, Halifax used Amanda Webb. Both had solid efforts in the shutout win.
Lucy Morrison played well on defense, and Hannah Glass had a strong effort at stopper. Logan Holmes and Tumia Marable played well at the defender spots, according to coach Sid Young.
Gabby Medley also turned in a fine effort at wing and forward. Mary Popek performed well at midfield.
