The Park View Dragons boys basketball team got a pair of important wins in the Tri-Rivers District this past week. The Dragons traveled to Lawrenceville on Wednesday and stunned the homestanding Bulldogs, 73-66. The road trip continued for Park View as they next traveled to Windsor on Friday to manhandle the Windsor Dukes, 73-35.

With the pair of wins the Dragons are now solidly in third place in the district with a home game against Franklin tonight (Wednesday) and then a road trip to Southampton on Friday to finish out the regular season with hopes of catching Brunswick for second place in the district.

Park View 73, Brunswick 66

The Dragons, who lost to arch-rival Brunswick at home on December 18, were looking not only to avenge that loss but to improve their chances of gaining ground on the Bulldogs in the regular season standings. The top two teams in the Tri-Rivers will host opening round games in the district tournament later this month.

Park View won the first period, besting the Bulldogs 17-14 as junior guard Josh Boyd hit eight of his game-high 31 points in the frame. L’Anthony Joyner added four, Eli Fadool had three, and TJ Alexander scored two points to round out the scoring for Park View.

The teams battled to a 21-point deadlock in the second period. Boyd and Adam Crabel scored five points each for PV with Alexander and Joyner each adding four points. Brunswick’s R. Walker led the Bulldogs with seven points as the Dragons went to the locker room clinging to a slim 38-35 lead.

The Bulldogs cut the lead to a point at the end of the third period by outscoring the Dragons 15-13 in the stanza. Brunswick got a strong effort from J. James, who scored seven of his team-high 20 points. Boyd kept the Dragons in the hunt with ten points in the third quarter.

The Dragons were able to put the game away in the fourth as Boyd kept up the hot hand with 11 points in the frame. TJ Alexander added nine points to help Park View come away with the road victory over their biggest rival.

Along with Boyd’s 31 points, Park View had two other players in double figures, Alexander with 15 and Joyner with 13.

On Friday night the Dragons traveled to Windsor and scored 73 points for the second game in a row. This time their opponents, the Windsor Dukes, could only muster 35.

PV won the first, third, and fourth periods and lost the second by just one point.
