The Park View Lady Dragons dropped an important Tri-Rivers District game on the road last Wednesday, falling to the Brunswick Lady Bulldogs in Lawrenceville, 45-52. Park View bounced back at home by crushing an overmatched Windsor Lady Dukes team Friday night, 55-20.

Brunswick 52, Park View 45

The Lady Dragons, now 15-5 overall (11-4 TRD) traveled to Lawrenceville last Wednesday to take on the Lady Bulldogs in a pivotal Tri-Rivers District match-up. Brunswick, now 10-8 overall (9-5 TRD) was looking to avenge their loss to the Lady Dragons in South Hill on December 18 and they got some satisfaction, besting PV 52-45.

Park View fell behind early as the Lady Bulldogs set the pace in the first period. Brunswick scored 17 points to only eight for the Lady Dragons, putting PV in a big hole early. A. Seward scored nine of her game-high 21 points in the first period for Brunswick.

The Lady Dragons just couldn’t find their range as Teonia Watts and Jordan Jackson each scored four points to account for the entirety of the PV offense.

The Lady Dragons rallied in the second quarter, with the defense holding Brunswick’s Seward scoreless and limiting the Bulldog girls to just six points overall. Meanwhile Park View cut into the lead, albeit only slightly, scoring 10 points of their own.

Mikya Harrison and Watts combined for eight points (four each) and Tyonne Montague added a two pointer in the paint for Park View. The Lady Bulldogs got four points from T. Blanks and one each from N. Pair and A. Easter.

The Lady Bulldogs took a five-point lead to the locker room at the half, 23-18.

The third period saw pretty even scoring as Brunswick eked out a tiny advantage, 12-10. Park View’s Azaria Williams led the way with five points in the frame, followed by Harrison with four, Tiara House with three, Sophia Jansen with two, and Watts with a point from the charity stripe.

N. Pair scored six points for the Bulldogs with Seward and J. Crittendon each adding three.

Seward caught fire for Brunswick in the fourth as she poured in nine of her team’s 17 points as the Lady Bulldogs pulled away for the win. Azaria Williams answered with seven of her team-high 12 points on the night, but it was no enough as Brunswick prevailed, 52-45.

Park View 55, Windsor 20

The Lady Dragons bounced back on Friday night at PVHS, handing the overmatched Windsor Lady Dukes a 55-20 drubbing.

The Lady Dragons outscored the Lady Dukes in all four periods. Tyonne Montague scored six points in the first followed by Tiara House with five and Nyjae Talley with two as Park View took a 13-8 lead at the close of the first.

The Lady Dragons could only muster seven in the second period but it was enough as Windsor was held to only four in the frame. Park View put the hammer down in the third period, scorching the rim for 25 points.

Teonia Watts may have had her best quarter of the season, hitting for nine points. Williams added six, Sophia Jansen and Jordan Jackson had four each, and Mikya Harrison got a pair from the free throw line.

At the same time, the Lady Dragon defense smothered Windsor, holding the Lady Dukes to a paltry six points in the frame and effectively putting the game away.

Park View won the fourth period 10-2 to seal the win and improve to 11-4 in the Tri-Rivers District.

The Lady Dragons rank second in the district standings but have to look out for the Brunswick Lady Bulldogs, within striking distance at 9-5 albeit with games running out in the regular season. Park View is set to host Franklin tonight, Feb. 5 and close out the regular season hosting Southampton on Friday. If the Lady Dragons can get the two victories they are assured second place in the regular season Tri-Rivers District standings.

District playoff schedules will be announced shortly. Check The Mecklenburg Sun for updates.
