Lady Comets fall to Franklin in soccer

SoVaNow.com / April 03, 2014
The Halifax County High School varsity girls’ soccer team suffered a tough 3-1 loss at Franklin County Tuesday.

Halifax scored its lone goal eight minutes into the contest. Gabby Nelson scored for the Comets.

Halifax got a fine job in goal from keeper Sabina Amos, who recorded 27 saves.

FCHS had a little more offense.

Franklin County has a very technical, aggressive team, but this effort represented a major step forward for the Comet girls. FCHS usually wins in dominating fashion, so this close score on the road shows the progress of the Comet program.

Halifax showed a lot of desire and emotion in this close loss, according to coach Mat Robinson.

FCHS had two goals off of corner kicks.

Halifax is 2-1, and showing signs of considerable progress.

The Comet girls soccer teams host Bassett tomorrow Friday.

JAYVEE REPORT: Halifax has a new team, and remained competitive Tuesday as the FCHS squad won, 3-0. Robinson praised the overall Comet effort as excellent.

The defensive line had another stout effort, including Sinclair Hargrave, Erin Glass, Jessica Watts and Keeley Nelson. Abby Catron moved from forward to center midfield to move the ball forward and improve communication.

The jayvees are 1-1-2.
