Girls soccer lose heartbreaker to GW / May 13, 2010
The Comet varsity girls’ soccer team suffered its second 1-0 loss in less than a week’s time on Tuesday night, and its third heartbreaking defeat.

Halifax County High School lost to archrival GW-Danville 1-0 Tuesday night, dropping its record to 3-11 overall and 0-6 in Western Valley district play.

HCHS lost 2-1 to Martinsville a week ago, 1-0 to Park View the next night, and suffered this latest 1-0 defeat handed out by GW. HCHS lost to FCHS 5-0 last Friday, but the Comets had a good effort, considering the talent on the Eagles’ squad.

GW scored at the 23:03 mark of the first half, and that was the only scoring of the night. Halifax had seven shots on goal, while GW had 15.

Comet keeper Nia Brown had another outstanding game, with 13 saves.

Coach Sid Young noted the Comet girls played well, with several good scoring attempts.

HCHS just missed on a scoring opportunity in the first half. Trudy Thomas hit the post on a corner kick attempt, but the ball did not go in the net. These courageous Comet girls can’t seem to land a break.

Young said while Halifax is frustrated, they have maintained a good attitude. The coaching staff is pushing the Comet girls to continue to improve, without any thought of quitting, according to Young.

HCHS is away against PH tomorrow night, with the Comets’ senior night against Fleming set for next Tuesday.
