Halifax had a bit of a scoring revival in the third, putting up 14 points. But Halifax was out of contention heading into the final period, trailing 47-28 on the road.

Jarvis Owens led Halifax 18 points, including three 3-pointers in the final period. Will Miller hit two 3-pointers and had eight.

In earlier action, HCHS fell to GW-Danville Wednesday, 69-40.

GW got progressively stronger in the game, scoring 16 in the first period and 21 in the third period. Fleming led 16-6 at the end of the first period and 26-20 at haltime. GW went on a 21-8 surge in the third period to put the game out of reach.
