The Halifax County High School varsity girls soccer team defeated Heritage, 5-0, in preseason scrimmage action at home Monday.

Halifax got its first score from Chris Bradshaw, and then Gabby Nelson added two goals.

Amanda Webb scored the fourth Comet goal to make it a 4-0 match in first half.

Then, in the second half, Sabrina Amos added a goal to stretch the Comet advantage to 5-0.

Halifax used Sabrina Amos in goal the first half. Amanda Webb worked as the goal keeper in the second half for HCHS.

HCHS pitched a shutout, and the Comets also used a new sweeper - stopper combination. Lucy Morrison was the sweeper, and Camey Reese played stopper, and that combination worked out well.

HCHS begins its regular season Monday, with a road trip against Bassett. Comet coach Sid Young was pleased with the level of play, although he stressed areas of improvement at halftime.

Young said the Comets have to communicate better with each player on the field. HCHS also needs defensive improvement.

The Comets need to enhance their ballhandling and trapping skills, Young said.
