Park View jayvees romp over PE, 42-6

SoVaNow.com / September 11, 2013


The Park View jayvee football team played at home against Prince Edward on Thursday and came away with a 42-6 triumph.

Prince Edward scored the game’s first touchdown but after that, it was all Park View.

Scoring touchdowns for the Junior Dragons were German Neville, Gage Clary (on a touchdown pass from Ty Boyd), Hughie Chavis and Marquelle Alexander.

Jayvee head coach Bruce Cliborne praised his team’s resilience.

“They actually scored first but our kids came right back and did a great job with the win,” Cliborne said. “I especially want to mention both the offensive and defensive lines and the excellent job they did in the win.”

Cliborne said tackling is still something the team is working on, but noted the reason he believed the defense performed so well on Thursday was “because of the way we swarmed to the ball as a team. It was like bees to honey”

The jayvees will travel to Colonial Heights to play on Wednesday. Cliborne said it would be a good test of where his team stands.
