Season ends for Comet boys soccer
SoVaNow.com / May 13, 2013The season is over for the Halifax County High School varsity boys soccer team.
The Comet season ended with a scoreless tie against Magna Vista Friday night. HCHS did not make the Western Valley District tournament.
The final game for the season was played at Magna Vista’s field, the Smith River Sports Complex.
All three HCHS-Magna Vista games went to the wire. HCHS lost 1-0, won 4-3 in overtime at Halifax and had the scoreless tie.
“We elected not to play OT because MV has district play starting Monday and didn’t want to risk injury in a nondistrict game,” said Comet coach Frank Shealy.
Shealy saw improvements in the Comet’s overall prowess.
“I thought we possessed the ball much better and created more offense. They were stacking the box and really keying on Collin (Kashmer). We outshot MV five to two in a very defensive game. We had six corner kicks to only two for MV.
“Saves we equal to shots. (Comet keeper) Isak Schafer had a great save in the first half charging out and being aggressive to the ball.
Collin had one really good opportunity to score in the first half but the MV keeper was probably the best we have faced all year. Nick Zanarini and Evin Morrison were back in action and really helped us to control the ball.
“I was very pleased with our play and possession throughout the game,” said Shealy.
