The Halifax County Middle School girls soccer team had a tough 5-1 loss against Bluestone Middle School on Monday, in the first game of the season.

Even though Halifax County lost, the Lions left the field with our heads held high because the girls never gave up and they played their hearts out.

In the first half, Leah Wright had three shots on goal. Lauren Cole had one shot on goal. Peyton Davis took a corner kick and penalty kick for the team. Pan Pan Yang had two shots on goal, making one goal during the first half. Sydney Fisher assisted Pan Pan Yang for the only goal the Lions made during the game. McKayla Meadows played goalie during the first half and had two saves. Destini Brooks took the goal kicks. It was her first game ever playing goalie. Bluestone had two corner kicks in the first half.

At half time we were tied 1-1.

In the second half, Pan Pan Yang had one shot on goal. Peyton Davis had three shots on goal. Peyton Davis took one corner kick and one penalty kick for the team. Leah Wright had two shots on goal. Cheyenne Francisco played goalie in the second half. She had four saves.

Chesney Richardson was our most valuable player of the game. She really came out strong as a midfield left wing. She assisted Pan Pan Yang, Peyton Davis, and Leah Wright with a tremendous amount of passes during the game.

The Lion coaching staff plans to work with the defensive players to build a stronger defense before the next game on Wednesday. We will be making a few shifts in offense to create a stronger offense as well. Overall, the coaches were very pleased with the players and their efforts. Halifax has a young team with lots of motivation and the willingness to learn.
