Three Halifax County High School girls and boys’ basketball teams played GW-Danville Tuesday night in Piedmont District action.

Only one Comet squad came away with a ‘W’ - the Halifax jayvee girls.

Halifax routed GW at home, 48-24. Halifax had a solid start, scoring 15 points, and then the Lady Comets added back to back 12-point periods on the way to a comfortable evening on the hardwood.

Ella Morrison, who has been working hard to improve her game, enjoyed a breakout performance with 21 points. She got support from A’nya Brandon, who had six points. Grace Langford added seven points. Aliasha Hunt helped out late with seven points. Kayla Townes added six points. Halifax led 27-13 at the half.

Halifax performed well on the defensive end, limiting the visitors to five points in the first period and one in the third. GW connected on just five second half field goals.
