The loss squared the Barons’ record at 2-2 on the season. Both losses have come against their cross-county rivals from Park View.

The Dragons remained unbeaten with the win.

The Park View boys also took their second victory of the season in Southside District play this week when they trounced Southampton, 7-0, on Monday.

The Dragons are now 5-0 on the season, 2-0 in the Southside District. They return to action today (Wednesday) for a home game against Brunswick, and are scheduled to travel to Greensville next Monday for a district match.
