Dragon girls fall to Lafayette to close out year

SoVaNow.com / February 27, 2013
The varsity girls basketball season at Park View came to an end last week in the Region 1, Division 3 quarterfinal round as the Lady Dragons fell to Lafayette High School, 75-53, Tuesday in South Hill.

The Park View girls entered the eight-team regional playoffs as the third seed but were overmatched by Lafayette of the Bay Rivers District, the tournament’s six seed.

The Lady Dragons had a dreadful first quarter, scoring only two baskets as Lafayette bolted in front 22-5, and the second quarter wasn’t much better as the local girls went into the halftime break trailing 46-18.

The game was never close after that, although Park View was able to pare down Lafayette’s 30-point lead at the end of the third quarter to the more respectable 75-53 final score.

Dare Wright had a solid game in regional competition, leading Park View with 15 points. Briana Rogers had 12 points.

With the loss, the PVHS girls finished the season with a 10-11 record.

Lafayette advanced to the semifinals where they lost to Bay Rivers rival Poquoson on Thursday, 49-47. The Region 1 championship was claimed by the Brunswick Lady Bulldogs, who thumped Poquoson 67-52 on Friday.

Both teams have advanced to the state tournament,.
