SoVaNow.com / February 06, 2013
The Park View Lady Dragons are now 8-9 on the season after a 51-43 win last week over Southampton and a 70-20 loss to Brunswick.

Playing the Lady Indians Thursday at Southampton, the Dragon girls came out strong in the first quarter to take a 15-7 lead. Park View finished the half ahead by 12 points, 25-13.

In the third quarter, the Dragons let the Lady Indians creep back into contention as Southampton scored 15 points to nine for Park View in the frame. But the Dragon girls outscored Southampton 17-15 in the fourth quarter to thwart the rally.

Lady Dragon senior Briana Rogers led all scorers with 26 points, followed by Dare Wright who scored 8.

Rogers had two rebounds while Wright snared eight rebounds.

On Friday, the Park View girls faced the Lady Bulldogs of Brunswick and were walloped by 50 points. The Lady Dragons gave a strong effort but were no match for the Brunswick varsity girls.

Brunswick finished the first quarter up 26-7 and went into halftime ahead 43-12. The Lady Dragons scored another 5 points in the third quarter and only 3 points in the fourth. The Bulldogs scored an additional 27 points in the second half of the game.

Park View’s high scorer was Rogers, who finished with six points. Dare Wright and Yadasia Clements each added five rebounds for the Lady Dragons.
