Lady Comets’ season ends with 48-29 loss to Patrick Henry

 

Janiyah Logan scored a team-high 12 points, and a rebuilding year for the Comets’ varsity girl’s basketball team ended on a disappointing note Monday with a 48-29 loss at Patrick Henry.

Nine seniors graduated from a 21-2 team that won its first Western Valley District championship in 21 years last season before advancing to the semifinals of the Northwest Region Tournament.

 

Loaded with youth, this years’ Comets team never found its rhythm and finished with a winless record against Western Valley District teams (0-8) and a 6-16 record overall.

Logan was the only Comet to reach double figures against the Patriots, hitting two three-pointers among her eight points in the third quarter.

Jaynee Campbell added seven points, Lexi Tucker six points, and Briyana Jackson and Aleara Edmondson two points apiece for Halifax County, which hit three of six free throw attempts for the game.

Zaynah Stephens and Jasmine Keeling scored 13 and 12 points, respectively for Patrick Henry, which led 10-5 after one quarter.

Tucker hit a three-pointer in the opening quarter and Campbell added another trey in the second period, but the Comets still trailed 28-10 at halftime.

Halifax County, behind Logan’s eight points and four points from Campbell, pulled to within 38-24 with a quarter remaining, but the Comets could score only five points in the fourth quarter as Patrick Henry pulled away.

The work now begins in earnest to find a team willing to execute and give the effort needed to be competitive throughout the season, Comets’ Head Coach Matthew McCargo said.

“I could not get them to be competitive on the floor,” McCargo explained.

“We were unable to execute, and that’s my fault.  As a coach I have to go to work and find five players who want to work and compete and be mentally focused.”

“It’s been the same thing night in and night out for over 20 games, and that’s my fault,” McCargo added.

“I have to be better as a coach or find players who can grasp what I’m trying to teach.

“The biggest thing is the if it doesn’t come easy forget it attitude has to go.”
