Comet sparkplug Dee Dee Jeffress led all scorers with 22 points, but it was not enough.

Person had a key 16-6 run in the third period.

Afterwards, Comet coach David Graham said Halifax needs work on its offense, as he is looking for better scoring and some fast break points.

Graham also said Jeffress had an outstanding game.

Daisy Mitchell scored six points for the Comets and Nicole Gillard had seven, including a trey in the final quarter.

Jalisa Brooks had five for Halifax.

Halifax had a quality 12-6 run in the first period, sparked by five points from Jeffress. The Comets had their best quarter of the night in the second, as Jeffress contributed seven. But the Comets could not sustain that production in the second half.
