Lady Comets fall to PH 3-0
SoVaNow.com / October 04, 2012The Halifax County High School varsity volleyball had a competitive effort in a key WVD showdown against PH-Roanoke Tuesday night, losing in three straight games.
The Comets, who won their district opener last week, stretched the Colonels in game two. HCHS had the early lead in game three, before fading at the end.
PH won 25-11, 27-25 and 25-15.
The Comet varsity had a very competitive second game against PH-Roanoke, before running out of steam in game three.
PH is 9-5 overall and 3-0 in the district.
HCHS had a tipping point, when the Comets did not close out a win in the second game.
“For some reason, we were lacking aggression. We let a lot of balls drop, which we never do as a team. We worked on us getting blocked, and the ball tipping, and we just didn’t execute it. We worked on that in practice (Monday). “We’re not quite coming together as a team. We’ve got some players that have good games and some players that don’t have good games. We never come together as a team and have a good game,” coach Tiffany White said.
HCHS had little room for error against PH.
“We could definitely beat that team, no doubt about it,” said White. “We had some execution errors.”
HCHS had 11 missed serves, including five in game two, which translates into a missed opportunity for the Comets.
The Comets are now 6-5 overall and 1-1 in the WVD. HCHS travels to GW tonight.
Chris Bradshaw had two good serves, two service points, one good set, six attacks and nine good passes.
