Halifax fell to visiting Patrick County, 54-34.

Four players reached double figures for the Lady Cougars. Autumn Hubbard and Izzy Beasley had 13 apiece for PC, while Sierra Hubbard added 12.

Dee Dee Jeffress had 18 and Daisy Mitchell chipped in with eight for Halifax. Jalisa Brooks had three points.

Halifax scored seven points in the third period, with three field goals and one of two free throws. Halifax had 11 in the final period, with Jeffress chipping in with five. But Halifax was basically out of contention by then.

Patrick sank five treys and went six of nine from the foul line. Halifax had four treys - all from Jeffress - and went two-for-four from the foul line.
