JV Dragons’ season gets off to fine start / December 04, 2019

Swarming defense, opportunistic offense, speed and agility were just a few traits on display Monday night as the Park View Dragons jayvee basketball team dominated the visiting Windsor Dukes. The Dragons vaulted out to a 19-0 lead early in the second period before coasting to a 51-15 win at PVHS.

Travante Hawkins got things started for the Dragons with a deuce on the first possession. He would add three more points and Tamarion Thomas (4 points), Kwandrey Coleman (4), Tomar Logan (2) and Jaquan Goode (1) would round out the scoring for the Dragons in the opening period.

The Dukes were held scoreless in the first period as the PV defense was relentless. The Dukes rarely got the ball past midcourt without a Dragon defender contesting every pass and move. The Dragons set traps, stole passes and just generally made life miserable for the Dukes.

Park View’s defensive superiority continued into the second period. The Dukes were able to score six points in the frame, but the Dragons scored 13 to extend the lead to 28-6 at the half.

Putting up points for Park View in the frame were Tomar Logan and Christian Puryear with four each, Jaquan Goode and Tylik Monor both added deuces and Cameron Gill sank a free throw to complete Park View’s 13 points.

The jayvees continued to dominate throughout the second half as they outscored Windsor 15-8 in the third quarter and 8-1 in the fourth en route to the 51-15 shellacking of Windsor.

Dewan Clark led the way for PV with six points in the second half followed by K. Coleman with five, Cameron Hayes and T. Thomas with four each and C. Puryear and T. Logan with a deuce each.

The Junior Dragons will head to Sussex to take on the Tigers on Wednesday and then will host the Greensville County Eagles at PVHS on Friday.
