The Halifax County High School jayvee boys’ basketball team continued its slump Friday, losing at William Fleming, 61-47.

Halifax has dropped six in a row, and fallen to 2-8 on the season.

Fleming took command from the outset, ripping off a 23-9 first period lead. The Comets only had five points in the second period and trailed, 31-14, at the half.

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.

Halifax got 21 points from Jarvis Owens, who had a three-pointer in first quarter and ten points in the second. Nick Jones had a good game from the free throw line, connecting on seven of ten attempts.
