Rude return to action for Dragons at Greensville / October 13, 2021
After a two-week quarantine due to a possible covid exposure, Park View football traveled to Emporia to battle Greensville County in an important Tri-Rivers District contest Friday night. The Dragons hung tough with the Eagles in a first half defensive struggle but couldn’t match Greensville County after the break and fell 28-7.

The first half saw both teams make mistakes on offense while both defenses performed admirably. After a scoreless first quarter, Greensville finally got on the board with a 15-yard TD pass at the 8:36 mark of the second quarter. The Eagles appeared to convert the two-point PAT but the play was called back on a flag and the second attempt failed, giving Greensville a 6-0 lead.

The Dragons jumped ahead on their next possession. PV junior running back Tomar Logan accounted for most of the yardage in a 48-yard touchdown drive with fullback Timothy Alexander finishing it off by punching in the score from 14 yards out. Senior kicker Jahir Magan-Vargas booted the extra point and Park View took its only lead of the game, 7-6, at the 6:22 mark of the second quarter.

Eagle quarterback J. White would throw his second TD pass of the game with 1:42 left in the half when he connected with junior X. Walton for an 11-yard strike. Once again, the two-point conversion was stuffed by the PV defense and the Eagles took a 12-7 lead into the locker room at the half.

The Eagles took the first possession of the second half and it didn’t take long for them to score. After White went to the air to connect with J. Walton for 28 yards to convert on a fourth-and-6 situation, senior running back K. Blue took the handoff and bulled his way into the end zone from five yards out for another Greensville TD. This time the two-point conversion was successful and the Eagles extended their lead to 20-7 with 8:45 left to play in the third.

Despite a heroic effort by running back Tomar Logan (79 yards on 24 carries) the Dragons couldn’t find their way into the end zone in the second half.

The Eagles got their final TD with 1:42 left in the game, this time on a one-yard sneak run by their quarterback. The two-point conversion was good and Greensville County went ahead by the final score of 28-7.

Park View coach Tony Whittingham Jr. said “being out 14 days due to covid protocols had an impact on our execution. No excuses, that’s the hand we were dealt.

“We have to continue to play,” Whittingham said, “and we expect to play better.”

With the loss Park View fell to 1-3, 0-1 Tri-Rivers District. The Dragons were set to host Franklin last night in a make-up game and will host Sussex Central Friday.
