The Park View varsity boys made an early exit in the Tri-Rivers District tournament this week but their hoops season will continue as the Dragons landed a berth in the 3A East Region Tournament based on the strength of their regular season performance.

Park View defeated Surry County 56-38 at home Wednesday in the opening round of the TRD tournament but ran into a buzzsaw the next night in Lawrenceville against the Brunswick County Bulldogs. Brunswick won the second round matchup 88-60 to keep Park View from advancing to the district tourney championship game.

On Friday, Brunswick lost 65-62 in the title encounter with eventual Tri-Rivers District champions, the Greensville Eagles.

The next action for the Park View boys comes Friday night, when the Dragons open the East Regional tournament against an opponent and with the location yet to be determined.

Here’s a recap of Park View’s run in the district tournament.

PV 56, Surry 38.

Playing Wednesday to open the district tournament, the Dragons and Cougars were evenly matched in the first half. Park View scored nine points in the first period and 11 in the second while holding the Cougars to seven and 10 points, respectively, to take a 20-17 lead at the half.

Park View was paced in the first half by Josh Boyd with 12 points, L’Anthony Joyner with four and TJ Alexander and Darius Hyman with two points each.

Cougars putting up points in the first half were Kahlil Drakeford with seven, Khamari Palmer and Treshawn Claiborne each with four, and Kohl Godsey with a pair.

The Dragons came out of the locker room after halftime on a tear and scored 24 points in the third quarter while holding the Cougars to just 10 points. The lopsided period put the game effectively out of reach. Hyman scored 10 points in the third for Park View while Boyd added four, Latavion House and Anthony Gardner put up three points each and Eli Fadool and Alexander added a deuce each.

Surry scorers were Drakeford with six and Claiborne and Julian Randolph with two points apiece.

The Dragons scored 12 points in the fourth period and limited Surry to 11, extending the final score to 56-38.

Boyd and Hyman both scored in double figures for the Dragons, with 19 and 14 points respectively.

PV box: D. Hyman 14, TJ Alexander 4, Lanthony Joyner 4, J. Boyd 19, E. Fadool 2, A. Gardner 5, K. Malone 3, AJ Bracey 2

Game details were unavailable, but the Dragons traveled to Lawrenceville on Thursday looking to defeat Brunswick at the Dog Pound for the second time in two weeks, after taking a 73-66 win on Jan. 29. However, it wasn’t to be as Brunswick took the 88-60 win over the Dragons to move onto the tournament finale against Greensville.
