The Halifax County High School jayvee boys basketball team continues to do good work on the hardwood this winter.

Halifax downed Magna Vista Tuesday at home, 58-46.

Halifax had a particularly potent second period, scoring 22 points.

The third wasn’t too shabby either, as Halifax produced 19 points.

Halifax led 32-19 at halftime and 51-34 at the end of three periods.

Halifax also enjoyed good balance on offense.

Jhamad Lawson led the way for the Comets with 13 points, while Devon Jennings had 10. Osiris Ross scored nine.

Magna Vista led 13-10 at the end of the first period, but the Warriors were inconsistent on the offensive side afterwards. Halifax held Magna Vista to six points, on one 3-pointer and a two-point basket, in an offensively starved second quarter.
