The Halifax County Middle School football season is done, with a 6-2 mark.

Halifax fell to GW-Danville on Monday at home, 22-14.

“The kids played their hearts out. We just fell short at the end of the game,” said Lion coach LeVar Medley.

Halifax got the ball back with 1:30 left in the final period, with a chance to forge a tie. But GW’s defense clamped down with a game-clinching interception, and the visitors ran out the clock.

Halifax got a rushing touchdown from Saeed Buster and a 10-yard scoring dash from Shyheim Davis. It was not enough.

Medley saw positives at the end of the campaign.

Halifax had a very good season. The Lions improved every week.

“We are a better team at the end of the season,” said Medley.
