Girls soccer slip past GW / April 23, 2018
The Halifax County High School girls soccer team slipped past GW-Danville, 3-2, in overtime Friday in the River City.

GW led early and had some creative shot making.

The Eagles led 2-0 at the half.

Halifax rallied with three second half goals.

Halifax had to play without one of its offensive sparkplugs, Mandy Lewis, who was injured earlier in the week against Martinsville.

Madelyn Haskett scored the first goal. Keeley Nelson tied the contest. Then, the game roared into overtime and Nelson scored again. Halifax was able to hold off GW.

Comet keeper Amanda Coleman had ten saves and played very well.

Halifax showed admirable comeback spirit and refused to wilt after going down early.

Halifax had 35 shots on goal, and still barely won. The Comets could not find enough offensive consistency to establish a wider lead.

Halifax is 4-5 after the narrow win over GW.

Earlier, the Comet girls fell to Martinsville, 2-1, Wednesday on the road.

This was a physical game. Halifax’s lone goal came on a penalty kick by Izzie Rosche in the second half.

Martinsville had five shots on goal, while Halifax cranked 13. Coleman had eight saves.

Halifax had eight direct kicks to just two for Martinsville, but the Comets could not capitalize on that discrepancy.
