After starting the 2021 volleyball season with a pair of road games, the Park View Dragon girls returned home for a non-district matchup with the Lady Comets of Halifax County High School on Monday. The Lady Dragons were tenacious but couldn’t handle the talented Comet squad and fell in straight sets.

Park View opened the 2021 season with a road win at Franklin High School last week, before losing to Southampton High last Thursday.

In game one of Monday’s match, the Comet girls trailed until about the midway mark when they went on a tear, scoring 13 unanswered points to take a 20-11 lead. The Lady Dragons tried to rally and were able to chip away at the lead but ultimately lost out, 25-16, Halifax.

Game 2 was nearly a carbon copy of the first game. Park View jumped out to an early 7-0 lead before the Comets started putting up points. Halifax went on a 7-1 run to make the score 8-7, in PV’s favor. The Lady Dragons scored four straight points before the Comets took control, outscoring PV 18-5 the rest of the way to take the 25-17 victory.

Halifax continued to dominate in the third and final game, scoring points in batches to prevail 25-18.

The Dragon jayvees seemed to be in control of Game 1 against Halifax, but watched a 24-17 lead evaporate as the Junior Comet girls rallied for a 26-24 victory.

Observers had to wonder if the Lady Dragons were up to the task of overcoming such an emotional loss, but it turned out they were more than able to do so. In Game 2 Park View sprinted out to a 10-3 lead and the maintained their composure to take the win 25-17.

As the rubber game got started the Lady Dragons once again showed their mettle early on, cruising to an easy 7-1 lead. The Lady Comets weren’t ready to give up though and rallied to tie the game at 8-8.

With the game tied, first-year Park View head coach Emma Jones called a timeout to settle her team down. In the rubber game the first team to 15 points wins, but they must win by two points. The teams traded points to a 14-all tie and it was anyone’s game. The Lady Dragons wanted it more and scored two straight to take the 16-14 win and match victory.
