PV girls ousted in region first round / June 06, 2018
The Park View varsity girls soccer team hosted Lakeland High School of Suffolk in the first round game of the 3A East Regional Tournament Wednesday. The opening whistle saw temperatures in the 80s with high humidity and the threat of rain. Soon the skies opened and the downpour began, but the game went on.

Despite a heroic effort by the Lady Dragons, the talent, speed and rugged playing style of the Lady Cavaliers proved to be more than PV could handle and the Lady Dragons fell 2-1, ending their season.

Park View’s defense was up to the challenge posed by the girls from Suffolk and for the most part the game was pretty even. Lakeland got an early goal but then Park View tied it up when junior Britani Hayes finished off a shot that was initiated by teammate Emily Lester.

After the rain started, Lady Cavalier Mikayla Grant made a shot that slipped past PV keeper Danielle Green for the game winner. Grant took a pass from a teammate and as she was sliding down onto the wet turf, she lashed out in near desperation with right foot and got a forceful shot past a perfectly-positioned Kate Ignacio on defense for the Lady Dragons.

Afterwards, PV coach Mark Roberts lauded the efforts of his team. “I’m so proud of these girls. They’ve worked extremely hard and come a long way.” When asked about the talented crop of underclassmen, Roberts smiled and said, “Yes, we’ve got a bright future ahead of us.”

The Lady Dragons finished the season 7-6-1.
