Park View jayvee girls continue winning ways against Sussex

South Boston News / January 24, 2018

The Park View jayvee girls basketball team took on Sussex in South Hill Tuesday night in a game that was postponed earlier in the year due to bad weather.

Both teams seemed to have a little difficulty finding their footing during the first half and there were more turnovers that scoring. Park View pulled ahead early and kept their lead en route to a 26-18 win over Sussex.

With the victory, Park View improved to 9-0.

Park View jumped out in front in the first period as Sheteria Garnes scored three points and Tiara House and Shakiah Chavis chipped in two apiece as the girls took a 7-1 advantage over their guests.

The second period proved to be a little problematic for Park View as they were only able to post four points — all by Kryslin Johnson, who had a field goal and two points from the free throw line.

The Sussex ladies outscored Park View with six points in the period on field goals by J. Walker, S. Ross and L. Ricks. The teams retired to the locker room with Park View leading 11-7.

K. Johnson continued her scoring ways for Park View in the third quarter, accounting for eight of her team’s 13 points in the stanza. Her hard work and determination on the offensive boards resulted in most of her points taking place under the basket. Sussex could muster only four points in the period as they fell behind, 24-11.

With the Park View reserves coming in during the fourth quarter, Sussex outscored Park View 7-2

Park View was led in scoring by Johnson with 12 points and Garnes with seven.

There is a lot of talent on this Junior Dragon squad and that bodes well for the varsity Lady Dragons program for the next few years.

Box score:

PV – S. Garnes 7, T. House 5, K. Johnson 12, S. Chavis 2

Sussex – J Walker 3, J. Birchette 1, D. Graves 3, L. Ricks 6, S. Ross 5
