Lion boys face key challenge

SoVaNow.com / February 06, 2017


Halifax County Middle School boys basketball has a key game for the top seed in the upcoming Piedmont Junior District tournament at Bonner tonight.

The Lions continued their late season momentum with a 48-32 win against Fieldale Collinsville Thursday night.

Halifax did not use its starters all that much, as the reserves got playing time.

Lion coach W.J. Long said the Lions played pretty well for the most part.

Halifax got Kevon Ferrell and DJ Jennings looks early, and they capitalized.

“We got back pretty good on defense, something we need to improve on. (We) pressed them the second quarter and played zone in the half court,” said Long.

Ferrell led Halifax with 11. The Lions finished six of 13 from the foul line.
