The Park View varsity girls stole a victory against Windsor High School Friday night — not because the contest was close, but because at least half of PV’s points in the 67-30 rout came from steals and forced turnovers inflicted on the struggling Lady Dukes.

“I’m pleased with the intensity and drive that I saw from these girls tonight,” said coach Mike Barmoy. “We did a lot of things right in the first half.

“We worked hard on that in practice and I’m pleased to see results,” Barmoy said of the turnover total. “Now we just have to keep it up when we face Dinwiddie here on Monday night.”

The Lady Dragons opened the game with a blistering full court press that allowed them to hold WHS scoreless until the 2:47 mark in the first period. It was all Park View needed to take control of the contest, as the girls scored 20 points in the first period.

Leading scorers for the Lady Dragons in the stanza were Teonia Watts and Nieya Hawkins with four points apiece, but the offensive credit was spread pretty much evenly among six players as teamwork proved to be the watchword.

The second period saw more of the same as PV continued their furious assault on the basket and on the Lady Dukes.

Watts opened the scoring in the second with a deuce at the 7:10 mark and followed that up immediately with a steal and two more points at 6:55; she went on to score six in the quarter. T. Tamlin scored three points early in the period for Windsor but then the visitors were hit with a defensive hurricane by Dragons girls, leading to a scoring drought that lasted until the 1:33 mark. Dasia Harris showed off her rebounding skills for the Lady Dragons and scored two points at the 5:30 mark on a strong put-back after an offensive rebound. Once again, the scoring was well balanced with Watts’ six points in the frame leading the way.

Park View opened the second half with Hawkins dropping in a bucket at the 6:30 mark. Then Azaria Williams took over the game for Park View by scoring eight points in the final five minutes of the period. Mikya Harrison and N. Hawkins added six and four points, respectively, and even though it was the best quarter of the game for Windsor, Park View still dominated by winning the quarter 22-17. The score at the end of the stanza was 60-23 in Park View’s favor.

The offense slowed somewhat in the fourth quarter as the clock was left to run due to the large lead. Nikki Shabenaz dropped in her second trey of the night and Tyonne Montague and Dasin Harris added two points each, and the Lady Dragons sent WHS packing 67-30.

For the game, Park View had very balanced scoring, with Hawkins leading the way with 12 points, Watts, Williams and Harrison each contributing 10, Shabenaz adding eight, Harris with seven, and Montague with six.
