Appomattox Regional Governor’s School visited Park View Tuesday night searching for an upset, but instead the visiting team went down in flames as Park View prevailed, 62-44.

Despite a stellar effort by ARGS phenom Jada Boyd, the Park View girls were able to pull away beginning in the second quarter and they built a safe lead in the second half en route to the victory.

The first quarter was a bit choppy for the PV as they won the period only narrowly, 10-9, and had trouble containing ARGS’ Boyd who scored all nine of her team’s points — a trend that was to continue. Nieya Hawkins and Tyonne Montague scored four points each for PV and Jaidyn Lamb and Mikya Harrison each added a free throw.

PV started to find their footing in the second and opened up a lead. N. Hawkins got four more points in the period, matched by four from Harrison. DeShay Sturdivant and Teonia Watts added a bucket each. Once again Boyd led the way for the ARGS team, adding four to her total — the only four points her team was able to score as ARGS went to the locker room trailing 22-13.

The third period was a real treat to watch as the PV girls really showed their aptitude for team basketball. Right out of the gate Lamb fed Hawkins a beautiful no look pass to get the scoring started at the 7:30 mark. Boyd answered for ARGS at 7:00 but the PV ladies were just too strong, outscoring their foes 23-14 in the frame. The third was a bit of a highlight reel for ARGS’ Boyd as she scored all 14 of her team’s points. The PV Lady Dragons’ balanced scoring attack was led by T. Watts who got six of her 10 points for the game in the third. J. Lamb and M. Harrison added five points each, N. Hawkins got four and T. Montague added two.

The fourth period opened with a bang for ARGS’ Boyd as she got two more points just 10 seconds into the stanza. She then added two free throws and a deep trey to complete a 7-0 run all by herself. The PV girls shook it off, however, and started to pile up points at the 5:23 mark. They would go on to score 17 in the fourth, good enough for the 62-44 win.

ARGS’s Boyd finished off an amazing night, scoring 13 points in the final frame to end up with 40 of her team’s 44 points. Leading scorers on the night for Park View were Harrison with 14 points, Hawkins with 13 points, and Lamb, Montague and Watts all with 10.
