Halifax County High School is looking to rebound from a season-opening loss on Friday against a familiar opponent, GW-Danville, with the game scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
Friday’s game at Tuck Dillard Memorial Stadium is the second game in an abbreviated five-game schedule for Halifax County.
The Comets are coming off a 30-6 loss to Bassett High School, a game in which they committed three turnovers and were flagged for 11 penalties totaling 89 yards.
Halifax County never led against the Bengals but trailed by only 10-6 entering the fourth quarter, where Bassett pulled away with the help of two interceptions, including one for a touchdown on the last play of the game, when the Comets were driving inside the Bassett 10-yard line.
Head coach Rob Senseney said after the loss that the Comets did “a lot of good things” against Bassett.
“We’re just a young group. Mistakes at this point compound themselves because of our lack of experience and lack of practice,” Senseney noted.
GW has played two games thus far, losing to Group 3 powerhouse Lord Botetourt 70-6 in its opener, before winning 41-0 against Patrick County High School last week.
