Jayvees fall 3-0 to Glass / May 03, 2009
The jayvee Comet girls’ soccer team lost to E.C. Glass, 3-0, in WVD action Friday night.

HCHS had several good penetrations in the second half, sparked by excellent hustle from Courtney Young, but could not overtake the Hilltoppers in the second half.

Halifax has been hampered all season by a lack of depth, and it showed up again.

There was also a mixup in the schedule, as the HCHS JVs warmed up early, only to be forced to sit for the varsity game, which was played first.

Nevertheless, the Comet JVs gave a good effort. Halifax had to do early re-arranging, and then the Comets had a stronger second half.

Courtney Young, Trudy Thomas and Jordan Murray played well for HCHS. Becca Snead, Sarah Catron and Mikeala Skelton performed well on defense, according to the Comet coaches.

Halifax overall showed very good intensity in the Glass game.

Taylor Elliott also showed good hustle on the wing positions.

Glass was the latest game in a busy stretch for HCHS.

In other action:

HCHS defeated Bassett, 1-0, in non-conference action last Monday.

Camy Reese scored the lone goal for HCHS in the first half.

Reese moved to midfield and scored from there for the only offense of the match.

In earlier non-conference action, the Comet JVs battled Bassett to a scoreless tie on the road.

Halifax played hard, even though the Comets played one performer down.

“We stayed on their side of the field the entire time. Just couldn’t finish it,” said coach Jessica Rose-Hayes.

HCHS also had little time to warm up in this game, because they were late getting to Bassett.

HCHS is 1-1-4 overall, with a crowded schedule next week.
