The Park View volleyball team dropped a match at home last week to Windsor High School, losing three games to one. Park View then went on the road and got a pair of wins at Sussex Central (3-0) and Brunswick (3-0)

The Windsor High varsity girls brought their “A” game to Park View on Tuesday and while the Lady Dragons didn’t make it easy, the visitors took the 3-1 match win.

Game one went the Dukes’ way as they went on a 7-2 run at the midpoint to lead 15-8 and then traded points with PV to get the win, 25-18.

Game two was much more exciting as the Lady Dragons evened the match up with a 25-23 victory. The fireworks came late for the Lady Dragons as they trailed Windsor 22-18. PV head coach Emma Jones called a time out to rally her troops, and the Lady Dragons went on a 7-1 spree to take the win.

With the match tied at one apiece, both teams fought hard in the final pair of games but Windsor squeaked by in game three, 26-24 and finished the match with a 25-23 win in the final game.

With the pair of wins and the loss this past week, the Lady Dragons stand at 5-3 on the season. Park View traveled to Halifax this past Monday night and the Lady Dragons were scheduled to host the Franklin Lady Broncos in a Tri-Rivers district match-up on Thursday.

Jayvees drop
Windsor match 2-1

The jayvees took a tough loss to visiting Windsor High School last Tuesday evening at PVHS.

Park View took a somewhat lopsided win in the first game of the match with a 25-15 victory. From there, though, Park View couldn’t complete the deal.

In game two, PV allowed an 18-11 lead to melt away and ended up losing 28-26 as the two teams fought ferociously at the end.

In the third and final game of the best-of-three series, the Junior Lady Dragons hung tough but fell 15-13 and took the “L”. With the loss the PV jayvees fell to 2-2 for the season and were on the road Monday at Halifax.

The jayvee girls will host Franklin at PVHS tomorrow night and then host Southampton on Sept. 28.
