The Halifax County High School varsity girls soccer team saw its season end Monday night after a 5-0 loss to PH-Roanoke in the Conference 16 tournament.

The Lady Comets finished 8-9.

PH-Roanoke led 3-0 and extended its lead in the second half. Halifax had two shots on goal, while the keeper had nine saves. Halifax had three corner kicks and nine direct kicks.

PH had 14 shots on goal.

Comet coach Sid Young said PH has a good program, with more experience in travel soccer for its players.

“The girls played hard, pretty good game for the most part,” he said.

Hailfax had several opportunities and also had some offsides penalties.

“There were a couple of games we lost we felt we should have won. We felt we should have beaten GW up there. We felt we should have beaten Martinsville up there,” said Young.

Young said Halifax had one of its best games against GW at home, overcoming a deficit to win 5-3.
