The Halifax County High School jayvee girls’ basketball team defeated PH-Roanoke, 40-24, in district action Tuesday in South Boston.

HCHS did a solid job defensively, limiting PH to two field goals in the first half. Halifax led 11-4 at the end of the first period and outscored the Pats, 12-0, in the second period.

That proved to be enough of a momentum burst to lift HCHS to a lopsided win at home.

Seven Comets also got into the scoring column, as HCHS displayed good offensive balance.

Trinity Owen had four points, while Neisha Torian had 11, including a third quarter trey. Timonee McCargo added eight.

Ghanja Gooden had 11.

Gooden provided an early spark, scoring all of her points in the first half.
