Jayvees fall to GW to close out football season

SoVaNow.com / November 05, 2012
The Halifax County High School jayvee football team suffered a tough home loss to GW-Danville Thursday night.

GW held off the Comets, 20-14, capping the season. HCHS finished 7-3 overall in the season finale.

The Eagles and Comets battled on nearly even terms most of the way. GW scored late from a yard and a half out to make it 20-8. Roland Brandon later added the final Comet touchdown, and the two-point attempt was denied.

That was the extent of the scoring on the night.

The Comets got two scores, as Justin Logan scored on a run on the first drive of the third period. HCHS connected on the two-point conversion from Kyran Adams to Logan.

Brandon capped the Comet scoring against the Eagles.

“Two good teams going at it, that’s the way you want to end it, with a good game. They’re really good, got some good skill kids. The offensive and defensive lines really impressed me,” coach Kenneth Day said.

The Comets lost to GW, PH and Heritage.

“They improved. Where we came from the beginning of the year to where we are (now) ... a totally different team,” said Day.
