JV soccer falls to Halifax Comets

On Tuesday night, JV soccer lost to the Halifax Comets 1-0. This was the second time this season the Trojans have played against Halifax, previously losing 3-2.

Although the Trojans did not win the second time around, they felt better about their performance as a team.

“We did a lot better defensively. We just couldn’t get the chances offensively,” said goalie Chad Weatherford, who is a senior.

“Overall, we played a lot better,” he said.

Sophomore Jakub Jeck agreed with Weatherford.

“We played better in our formation than last time. We used it more to make good passes and shots,” said Jeck.

The first half ended with a score of 0-0. Both teams had a strong defense and protective goalies.

The teams fought hard during the second half, but after a corner kick by Halifax, the Comets kept possession of the ball and scored, making the score 0-1.

“There were still minor things we could’ve done better, but overall we have definitely improved,” said sophomore Zach Childress.

The next game will be Tuesday, May 8 against Patrick County at home. The game will begin at 5:30 p.m.
