Jayvees absorb loss to PH

SoVaNow.com / January 28, 2013
The Halifax County High School jayvee boys’ basketball team absorbed another loss in Western Valley district play Thursday night.

Visiting PH-Roanoke defeated the Comets, 64-52.

PH got out to a fine start, outscoring HCHS, 23-11, in the first period. From there, PH held a six-point lead at the half, 32-26, and really stretched the margin in the third period.

PH-Roanoke outscored the Comets, 15-6, in the third period. By the end of the third quarter, the Patriots led the Comets, 47-32.

PH cruised to the win in the final period, continuing a very frustrating season for Nathan Lantor and the Comet jayvees.

PH found success from beyond the arc, sinking six treys in the first period alone. PH added another 3-pointer in the second quarter and two more in the third.

Kory Lennon had a very productive night for HCHS, scoring 19 points. He had a very strong second period, collecting nine points. Will Miller also had a fine game, scoring 16. Miller connected on three treys.

Both of those players should help the Comet varsity program in the coming seasons. Both started with the varsity this season, but moved down to get more playing time and overall development.

Halifax also had a productive night from the foul line, sinking 11-of-15. However, HCHS simply did not have the offensive strength to keep pace with a quality PH program.

The PH jayvees got scoring from eight players. The Pats had strong success from beyond the arc and made 13-of-16 free throws.
