Jayvee girls pick up win over Magna Vista

SoVaNow.com / January 27, 2014
The Halifax County High School jayvee girls’ basketball team recorded a 26-17 win over visiting Magna Vista Friday night.

HCHS led, 1-0 at the end of the first period. The Comets won the second quarter, 7-4, and had an 8-4 edge at halftime.

Halifax sealed the deal with a 12-1 burst in the third period. Magna Vista won the final quarter, 12-6, but could not overcome a 20-5 Halifax deficit at the end of the third.

Ghanija Gooden had nine for the Comets. Malasia Boyd added six.

Shadajah Davis scored seven for Halifax, now 8-5 on the campaign.

Comet coach David Graham said, “We hadn’t played in over a week. We were really rusty the first half, but they stepped it up in the third period and started executing and scoring and doing the right things.”

HCHS is showing improvement defensively, and now the Comets have a positive burst of momentum heading into a busy week. The jayvees have three games on the road, including challenges at Tunstall, Bassett and GW-Danville.
