Lady Comets improve to 3-0

SoVaNow.com / March 26, 2009
The HCHS girls’ varsity soccer team improved to 3-0 after a 2-0 win over Martinsville Monday.

HCHS has been seeking to get a faster start to its games, and the Comets responded on the road.

Cianne Townsend got the Comets rolling with a corner kick near the midway point of the first half for the first goal of the night.

HCHS got its second goal with about 10 minutes left in the first half, when Sarah Rosche scored on a breakaway.

HCHS led 2-0 at halftime. Martinsville remained scoreless in the second half.

HCHS had a stout defensive effort, as Nia Brown played well at goalie.

C.A. Nichols is the Comet sweeper, and she had a strong game. Liz Stanger and Megan Rosche also had strong efforts for the Comet defense.

“The girls are improving. I thought they all showed improvement over the course of the past three games,” said HCHS coach Sid Young.

HCHS was on the road at Tunstall last night. The Comets start district play next Tuesday with William Fleming.
