Girls take lopsided win over Franklin / December 13, 2017
A sign of good coaching is pointing out a team’s negatives even while dominating the action against opponents.

Monday night’s contest between Park View and Franklin — won by Park View, 56-24 — was lopsided in favor of the host Dragon girls, but that wasn’t what was important to head coach Mike Barmoy.

“We didn’t play that well, we just went through the motions,” said Barmoy. “It took us forever to get going but in the second half we played better.

“We got better ball movement and effort the second half,” he said.

Regardless of the coach’s disappointment, this was a dominating effort by the Lady Dragons from the tipoff to the final horn. After falling behind 3-2 in the opening moments, Park View went on a tear, scoring 22 straight unanswered points and holding the Lady Broncos scoreless until 2:59 left in the first half.

However, the Lady Broncs went on a mini-tear of their own and outscored PV 13-8 over the last 2-1/2 minutes of the period. PV took a 32-16 lead into the locker room.

The second half was all Lady Dragons, however, as they scored 19 points in the third quarter with the Broncos managing only two points. Franklin scored only five more points in the fourth en route to the lopsided 56-24 defeat.

Leading scorer for Park View was Mikya Harrison with 14 points, followed by Nieya Hawkins with 13 points and Jaidyn Lamb with 10.
