The Halifax County High School jayvee football team dropped a 28-6 decision to Heritage Thursday at home.

The Comets, now 2-2, cracked the scoreboard only once, as quarterback James Smith, Jr., connected with Kelonte Gutrich on a 55-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. HCHS trailed, 8-6, at that point, and never got any closer.

Heritage led, 16-6, at halftime, and added two second half touchdowns, including one with about a minute left in the game.

Halifax struggled against a talented Heritage jayvee program, which has a strong football culture again. The varsity Heritage squad beat Gretna Friday. HCHS does not play Heritage in varsity action.

The Comets played hard, but made some mistakes, which put the jayvees in a hole, according to coach Kenneth Day.

HCHS plays GW-Danville Thursday on the road.
