HCMS boys beat Martinsville 6-0, ready for district tournament / April 15, 2019
Halifax County Middle School boys’ soccer defeated Martinsville, 6-0, on Thursday.

Henry Midkiff had a goal, and Semaj Jeffreys and Colin Gravitt scored two apiece. Kaelin Graves also had a goal. Preston Riddle scored as well.

Elliott Kirkhart had two saves, and Graves had three saves.

“We ended the season the right way and got our biggest win of the season. The eighth graders left it all on the field tonight because this was their last home game as a Lion,” said Kwame Lambert.

“Tonight the boys had fun and Coach Martin and I saw the biggest smiles on their faces that we never seen before. Most of the boys got an opportunity to play some positions that they usually don’t play. I thank the fans for coming out tonight because they all played a big role in this win. We ended the season 7-7 and have secured a playoff spot for the district tournament,” said Martin.

“It’s a new season for us now and we have to go 3-0 to bring the Junior Piedmont District Championship home to Halifax. We enter the district tournament with the underdog mentality and that’s exactly what I expected,” said Martin.

On Wednesday, the Lions fell 4-1 to Ben Franklin Middle on the road.

Alex Payne had the lone goal. Keeper John Louden had six saves.
