The Franklin County High School varsity girls soccer defeated the Lady Comets 8-2 Friday night in South Boston, but the coaching staff sees clear progress with the program.

Halifax was more competitive against the Eagles and the team is making strides.

Halifax got second half goals from Ty Crews and Gabby Medley.

The Comets trailed 4-1 at home before matters got out of hand.

“It’s the first time we’ve scored two goals on Franklin in a number of years,” said Comet coach Sid Young. “We made some defensive mistakes back there that gave up two or three goals that we probably shouldn’t have. “The girls realize they can score (against the district’s best teams) now,” noted Young. “We’re still a fairly young team. I’ve only got four seniors. Got a good group of juniors, good group (of sophomores). HCHS also has three freshmen starters.

HCHS is seeking to land one of three Northwest regional berths, and the key might be the GW-Danville game in South Boston.

“If we beat GW when they come up here, that should put us in third place,” said Young.
