The Halifax County High School varsity girls’ basketball team fell to GW-Danville at home Tuesday, 54-39.

Halifax trailed 14-2 at the end of the first period. The Comets were better in the second quarter, but Halifax could not maintain enough consistency.

Dee Dee Jeffress led Halifax with 18 points. Tamara Logan had five.

“The team was a little rusty in first quarter scoring only two points, but we bounced back with a 16-point second quarter. We trailed by nine at the half,” said Comet coach David Graham.

Halifax came out with a good third quarter surge, but as soon as the Comets got close, GW had a run. The Eagles closed out the Piedmont District win. Graham is thinking positively.

“Strong play by Dee Dee Jeffress with 18 points, leading all players on both teams. A good performance by Nicole Gillard,” said Graham.

Gillard played a solid all-around game, especially on defense.

“Daisy Mitchell and Meshia Canada did a great job on the boards for us. Jasmine Brown and Tamara Logon shot the ball well,each making a 3-pointer. We are doing good things on the court, and a lot of times we look really good.

“All we need is to put it all together,” said Graham.
