Lions fall to GW 48-20 on the road recently / October 03, 2019
The Halifax County Middle School football team fell to GW-Danville, 48-20, last week on the road.

“As a team we didn’t play up to our standards. We missed a lot of tackles on defense, that is one thing we are going to have to clean up. I just have to prepare my players a lot better than I did. Offensively we made plays, we proved we can score on them offensively. We just have to sure up the tackling,” said coach LeVar Medley.

Halifax could not keep pace with GW.

The first Lion score came when quarterback Atavion Mabins connected with Jesse Powell for a 54-yard strike.

Mabins was picked off during the second drive.

The ensuing drive came on a 45-yarder from Kanya Caddle, giving Halifax 12 points. Halifax went on another scoring drive with Kanya Caddle catching another touchdown pass.

“I just have to get my guys better prepared for the next go round,” said Medley.
