Lions wrap up season this week; pick up win over Laurel Park

SoVaNow.com / October 07, 2018
Halifax County Middle School football wraps up this week, and the Lions are coming off a very successful road swing against Laurel Park, rolling to a 44-0 win.

The Lion defense came out ready to play, and the offense also demonstrated superb execution. The offense scored on the first drive, sparked by a sprint to pay dirt by John Louden from 60 yards out.

The defense held, and the Lions kept on rolling.

“It was a total team win. A lot of the kids did a great job,” said coach LeVar Medley.

HCHS had two pick-six returns for scores, including Conner Harris and Kanye Caddle.

Harris had a savvy play, reading the errant throw from the quarterback and sprinting 25 yards with the return.

Halifax enjoyed contributions from special teams, as KeJuan Newton executed a blazing kickoff return.

The Lions also got a touchdown reception from tight end Damien Wilborn.

“We played all three phases very well,” said Medley. The Lions showed better tackling technique and the offense also showed improvement on the offensive execution.

Halifax is 3-2.
