Lady Comets strong in scrimmage
SoVaNow.com / November 26, 2012The Halifax County High School varsity girls basketball team had a successful pre-season scrimmage against Dan River last Tuesday at home.
The teams played four full quarters, and the Comets won them all. HCHS won the opening scrimmage, 17-8, the second, 15-4, the third in a blowout, 31-6, and the final quarter, 8-7.
Coach Billy Lucas said the Comets played very well.
Dan River slipped by and won a final half quarter, 5-4.
Halifax had very strong scoring from Lexi Tucker, who had 13 points, and Lakia Martin, who had 20.

“Defensively, the girls played great. They moved well in the defense and were able to get turnovers out of it. Offensively, we shot the ball very well. We were able to get a lot of scoring opportunities in transition,” Lucas said.
“Rebounding at times was an issue but we are working on that currently to get it better for us. Overall I was extremely proud of how the girls played all night long and was able to see vast improvement out of all of them since the first day of practice.”
