Park View jayvee girls ease past Dinwiddie / December 20, 2017
Park View fans were probably a little worried Monday night as the Dinwiddie came out strong and putting the Park View jayvees on their heels a little.

It wasn’t until the second period that Park View gained the upper hand en route to a 59-36 win.

Dinwiddie got a strong performance from N. Hammond in the first quarter as she scored eight of her 12 points, dropping in two treys and a deuce. With the score tied at 6, Park View started to use a full court press with about five minutes left in the period.

This did seem to throw the Dinwiddie squad off a little, but they were still able to score and took the first period 11-9.

In the second period Park View's Deona Watkins got hot and scored seven points, and Nyjae Talley added four and three other players also scored to lead Park View to a 20-6 romp in the period.

Turnovers and needless mistakes by Dinwiddie helped Park View considerably as most of the Dragons’ points came off of steals or turnovers. Park View able to go to the locker room with a comfortable 29-17 lead.

The second half continued to see domination by the Park View ladies. Watkins added four of her game-leading 18 points and was supported by S. Garnes and A. Green with five and four points, respectively. The Lady Dragons extended their lead to 46-23 at the end of the third.

In the fourth period the teams played to a 13-all draw for the period.
