The season-long struggles for the Halifax County High School varsity girls basketball team continued Tuesday night at home.

Halifax fell to visiting Patrick County, 54-34.

Patrick went on a 14-5 run in the first period and Halifax never made up the deficit. Halifax got outscored 20-11 in the second period, and Patrick cruised to a 44-23 lead at the end of the third period.

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

Hannah Roberson scored ten for the visiting Cougars.

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.
