Jayvee girls power past Tunstall

SoVaNow.com / January 30, 2014
The Halifax County High School jayvee girls powered past Tunstall on the road Monday, cruising to a 29-10 decision.

Ghanija Gooden hit a 3-pointer in the second period and led the Comets with ten points. Shadajah Davis added six points and Timmonee McCargo added seven.

HCHS took command early, outscoring Tunstall 8-0 in the first period. Alasha Edmondson, Davis, Gooden and McCargo each connected on field goals in the period.

Halifax then outscored Tunstall, 8-1, in the second period, giving the Comet girls a 16-1 edge at halftime. The third period was more competitive, with a 5-all split. Halifax won the final period, 6-4. Halifax County improved to 9-5 overall.

The Comets played solid defense, holding Tunstall, and showcased good offensive execution, according to coach David Graham.

HCHS was scheduled to play Bassett Tuesday, but that game has been moved to tonight. The Lady Comets get GW-Danville Friday in Danville.
