Jayvees drop pair
SoVaNow.com / December 26, 2012The Halifax County High School boys’ jayvee basketball team dropped a pair of games last week, losing to Magna Vista and E.C. Glass.
The Comets fell to Magna Vista, 53-45, at home last Friday, after dropping a 64-53 decision the previous night to the Hilltoppers.
The Comets and Magna Vista battled on nearly even terms through three periods, with the visitors leading, 36-35, at the end of three quarters. Halifax faded in the final period, as Magna Vista outscored the Comets, 17-9. Magna Vista capitalized on reasonably accurate fourth quarter free throw shooting, connecting on seven-of-13 attempts.
Halifax got scoring contributions from six players. Jarvis Owen had 16 points, including a pair of 3s. Will Miller, moving back to the jayvee squad, had a good effort, scoring 11, including three treys in the second half. Nick Jones had eight and Justin Penick five for HCHS.
Magna Vista had a significant edge on the foul line, as HCHS went three-of-seven on the night. Magna Vista connected on ten-of-19 attempts. The Comet jayvees could not keep pace with Glass, either.
Halifax scored 18 points in the first period, nine in the second, and 13 apiece in the third and fourth, but could not keep up with the Hilltoppers.
Glass took control with a 22-13 run in the third period. Owens had ten points, while Deshane Davis added nine. Nick Jones scored ten and Rymel Hill added eight.
