The Halifax County High School varsity girls soccer team closed out the regular season with a 4-0 win over Magna Vista at home Friday.

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.

Halifax has had a strong season, all things considered. The Comets had a couple of close calls against GW and just missed getting into double figure wins.

HCHS is in fourth place in the WVD, so the Comets go to Franklin County Wednesday for the opening action in the WVD tournament.

HCHS also will play in the WVD tournament consolation game if the Comets cannot get past the Eagles.

The winner of the consolation game would go as the third seed in the regionals.

JV REPORT: The jayvees girls soccer team also defeated Magna Vista, 3-0, capping a strong season for the Comets.
