Lady Comets shut down Park View in soccer

SoVaNow.com / April 22, 2013
Halifax County High School varsity girls’ soccer improved to 6-3 on the season with a 5-0 shutout win at Park View Wednesday.

The Comet girls rallied with a strong effort, considering that the Halifax squad had just played on the road against Franklin County the previous evening.

Halifax established momentum early. Gabby Nelson scored with ten minutes gone, and then Gabby Medley added a goal. Nelson connected again and Halifax led 3-0 at halftime.

Then, in the second half, Ty Crews and Amanda Webb added goals for the Comets.

Halifax County shook off a 7-0 loss at FCHS. Comet head coach Sid Young said, “We’ve seen a lot of improvement. The girls seem to play well together.”

Halifax also used two players in goal against Park View. Sabrina Amos started, and then Webb took over in the second half, as the Comets blanked the Lady Dragons.

SOCCER NOTE: Both Comet varsity soccer teams are scheduled to be in action today against archrival GW-Danville.

The boys are at home, while the Comet girls are away. Both games are at 5:30 p.m.
