The Halifax County High School girls’ basketball team continues Piedmont District tournament action tonight, welcoming Tunstall at 6 p.m. in consolation round play.

Halifax is coming off a first round loss to a tough Martinsville team on the road Friday.

No. 2 Piedmont District tournament seed Martinsville defeated Halifax 61-29 Friday at home.

Halifax coach David Graham said his club pulled within four points with a couple of minutes left in the first half, but the Bulldogs made a strong push to lead by 11 at intermission.

Graham said Martinsville is a very good team. Haifax could not handle Martinsville’s pressure defense in the second half.

Dee Dee Jeffress led the Comets with seven points. Daisy Mitchell, Tamara Logan and Jalisha Brooks had five.

The Lady Bulldogs were whole again after missing players the past few weeks to the flu and after shaking off the rust in the first half, Martinsville cruised past No. 7 Halifax County.

Four different Bulldogs reached double figures in the win. Janydia Taylor and Destinee Jones led the way with 17 points each. Latroya Gravley and Taylor Brown each scored 12 as well. Arianna Philpott added eight points and 15 rebounds in the win.
