The Park View girls basketball team hosted Franklin last Wednesday night. The Lady Dragons, 15-5, 11-4 Tri-Rivers District coming into the game, handed the Lady Broncos a 65-53 loss despite getting off to a slow start. Two nights later, the Southampton Lady Indians came to South Hill and fell 52-38, giving Park View a pair of wins to close out the 2019-20 regular season.

Park View 65, Franklin 53

The Lady Dragons, led by head coach Mike Barmoy, uncharacteristically fell behind the Broncos in the first half. The Lady Dragons posted 11 points in the first period and 11 points in the second. Meanwhile the Lady Broncos got off to a stronger start, scoring 14 and 13 points respectively to take a 27-22 lead at the half.

Park View got its offense in the first half from senior Azaria Williams with eight points, senior Mikya Harrison with six, sophomore Deaona Watkins with five and senior Teonia Watts who scored three.

Franklin’s scoring in the first half came from junior Miracle Monger with eight points, junior Mykeria Rawlings with six, senior Jamia Flythe with five and a smattering of points across the rest of the lineup.

Whatever Coach Barmoy told the Dragon girls at halftime, it worked. Park View came out on fire in the second half and took control of the game, both offensively and defensively. The Dragons poured in 25 points in the third period while limiting their opponents to just six to take the lead for good.

Watts scored eight in the third period for PV with Williams and Harrison adding five apiece. Watkins hit for four and Jordyn Jackson and Sophie Janson added two points each.

For the Lady Broncos, J. Flythe scored all six of the team’s points.

Flythe then took her Lady Broncos on her shoulders and tried desperately to make something happen in the fourth period. The 5’6” senior scored 17 of Franklin’s 20 points in the stanza, sinking three shots from beyond the arc. Fortunately for the Lady Dragons it wasn’t enough to overcome the 14-point lead PV had built up in the prior period.

Park View scored 18 points in the final frame with Watkins contributing six, Watts three, and two points each from Janson, Harrison, Jackson and Shateria Garnes. Williams added a free throw.

Park View 52, Southampton 38

On Friday the Lady Indians of Southampton High School made the long trip west on US 58 to South Hill and Park View dispatched them soundly, winning 52-38.

Once again it was a slow start for the Dragon girls as they could only muster eight points in the first period and 12 in the second. Meanwhile the Lady Indians posted 12 and 13 points respectively to lead at the half, 25-20.

Lady Dragons Sophie Janson and Teonia Watts led the way with four points each in the first half, supplemented by three points each from Azaria Williams and Deona Watkins. Mikya Harrison, Tyonne Montague, and Jordyn Jackson all added two points apiece.

Southampton scorers were K. Hite with 10, S. Slade with seven, A. Cannady with four, and J. Greene with a deuce.

Just like two nights previously, a halftime “talking to” must have done the trick for the Lady Dragons. Park View dominated the Lady Indians defensively in the third period, limiting Southampton to just six points. Offensively the Dragons doubled up Southampton, scoring 12 to take a one-point lead to the final frame. Williams, Harrison, Watts and Watkins provided the points for Park View.

Park View took over in the fourth period, winning the final frame by a 12 point margin, 20-8, to take the win. Watkins, Williams and Watts scored six points each and Janson added a deuce for Park View. Slade, Hite and Greene all scored for the Lady Indians.

Tournament play on tap

With the victories, the Lady Dragons improved to 16-5 overall and 11-4 in the Tri-Rivers District. The Lady Dragons had been scheduled to host the Lady Indians of Southampton High School on Friday but saw that game postponed due to high water and high winds in the southern Virginia vicinity. That game, the finale of the regular season, was rescheduled for Monday, February 10. Tri-Rivers District tournament play is set to begin tonight (Wednesday). The Lady Dragons will host the Sussex Central Lady Tigers in the opening round of the TRD tournament.
