Park View girls struggle to score in Classic
SoVaNow.com / January 02, 2013
The Park View girls varsity basketball team had a tough time on offense in a two-night washout at the HCHS Holiday Classic in South Boston over the holiday break.
The Lady Dragons tallied just 20 points in an opening night loss to host Halifax, which went on to claim the tournament title. On Friday night, the Park View girls also struggled to score in a 32-25 loss to Gretna.
Gretna led 25-21 at the end of three periods and held on to claim the consolation game win.
Park View had only two baskets in the final period and got outscored 7-4.
Briana Rogers had eight points for Park View in Friday’s final, while Dare Wright had six and Brittany Whitby had four.
Gretna scored eight points in the first period, 13 in the second quarter, 12 in the third period and ten in the fourth.
In earlier action, the Park View girls lost to the host Halifax County girls in Thursday night’s opener, 61-20.
Halifax installed a new half court trap defensive scheme for this game, and it paid off for the Comets. The pressure was too much for Park View to overcome.
HCHS got out to a great start, leading 18-2 at the end of the first period and 34-4 at the half.
Park View had a little more success scoring in the second half, getting seven points in the third period and nine in the fourth, but the issue was completely settled by then.
HCHS finished with nine players in the scoring column, led by Alexia Tucker and Che’lese Bowman with 11 apiece.
Park View got five from B. Whitby, seven from B. Rogers and four from D. Wright.
