Park View’s Nieya Hawkins scored 16 points and teammate Jaidyn Lamb added 14 In Park View's 54-28 win over Bluestone, Wednesday in Skipwith.

Bluestone got off to a slow start in the first quarter, mustering only five points. Iesha Gregory and Erin Strider scored a deuce each.

Lamb and Hawkins combined for 10 first quarter points. Mikya Harrison drilled a trey; Asia Tanner and Tyonne Montague added a bucket each.

Bluestone saw improved offensive production in the second quarter, scoring 10 points. Pettus scored five in the frame.

Park View’s offense slowed a little as the team posted nine points in the period. Hawkins had four and Harrison sank another three-pointer. But after opening a big lead in the opening quarter with 17 points, Park View went to halftime leading, 26-15.

In the second half, Park View’s pressing defense really began to take the Bluestone girls out of their game. Park View created several turnovers in the third quarter where the ball never crossed half court and the Lady Dragons had clear drives to the basket.

That defensive intensity, combined with poor shooting by the Lady Barons, put victory out of reach for the host team. Bluestone scored 13 second half points, while Park View posted a 16-point third and a 14-point fourth.

Bluestone’s Madison Lort posted four points in the second half; Hicks added a deuce and one from the line.

Lamb and Hawkins had eight points each in the second half for Park View. Azaria Williams added six in the second half.

Bluestone will compete in the Halifax Holiday Classic which begins Thursday in South Boston.

PV – J. Lamb 16, M. Harrison 8, A. Williams 6, D. Harris 2, A. Wood 2, N. Hawkins 16, T. Montague 6.

Bluestone – D. Pettus 6, C. Zentitelli 2, T. Canada 1, M. Lort 6, I. Gregory 9, K. Williams 2, E. Strider 2.
