Park View 55, Bluestone 28

Bluestone traveled across Mecklenburg County last week to pay a visit to Park View. The Lady Barons, a disappointing 2-11 coming into the fray, were looking to avenge a loss to Park View in Skipwith on Dec. 20.

The Dragon girls broke out to a 10-point lead in the first period, outscoring Bluestone 17-7. For the Dragons, Deaona Watkins, Mikya Harrison and Teonia Watts accounted for 12 of the Park View points with four points apiece. For the Lady Barons, Xzareyah Tucker scored all seven points with a trey and a pair of field goals.

In the second frame a swarming Park View defense held the Lady Barons to just three points, with K. Walls with 2 and Jalan Dailey with one from the free throw line.

For the Lady Dragons, who pushed hard offensively, free throws were the name of the game. Park View players went to the foul line 18 times in the stanza, completing half for nine points. Azaria Williams scored five of her game-high 18 points and Tyonne Montague added four as the Lady Dragons effectively put the game out of reach. The teams went to the break with Park View holding a solid 35-10 lead.

Lady Barons head coach April Bullock rallied her team at the half and they gave their best performance of the game in the third period, nearly matching Park View. The Lady Dragons gave up 12 points to Bluestone but were able to maintain the lead by scoring 13 points of their own.

Park View put the defensive pressure back on in the final period and all the Lady Barons could manage was six points. Dragons head coach Mike Barmoy, giving his bench some valuable playing time, watched his team score points to take the 55-28 victory.

Park View 68, ARGS 28

The Lady Dragons of Appomattox Regional Governors School (ARGS) paid a visit to Park View last Friday and while they were hot beyond the arc, they couldn’t match the interior play of the PV girls.

ARGS scored 28 points, with 24 of those points coming from beyond the 3-point line. The Dragon defense in the paint stifled any interior game and 11 PV players accounted for 68 points to get the win.

Essentially Park View put the game away in the first period, outscoring ARGS 24-6. Teonia Watts scored eight for PV with Jordyn Jackson adding six and Sophia Jansen chipping in five. A. Williams had three points and M. Harrison scored two to round out the frame.

Park View padded the lead in the second frame, scoring 17 points to just 11 for ARGS. Montague led the PV girls in the stanza with nine points and Watkins tallied six.

Leading 41-17 starting out the third quarter, Park View continued to pound the boards and produce points inside. Park View outscored ARGS 27-11 in the second half to take a 40-point Tri-Rivers District win.

In the second half for Park View, House scored 11 points on three treys and a deuce, Williams nailed three more treys for nine points, and S. Chavis popped a trey and S. Garnes added two points.

With the pair of victories, the Lady Dragons improved to 14-4 overall and 10-3 in the Tri-Rivers District. Looking ahead, the Lady Dragons have four key district games left in the season. PV travels to Lawrenceville tonight (Wednesday) to face the Lady Bulldogs of Brunswick County. The Lady Dragons then host the Lady Dukes of Windsor on Jan. 31 before welcoming Franklin and Southampton to South Hill on Feb. 5 and Feb. 7, respectively.
