2022.01.18 Girls Basketball: Heritage @ Park View

Sterling, VA (January 18, 2022) - In the nightcap of a winter double-header, the Heritage Pride traveled to play the Park View Patriots.

The Patriots started off the season with a 7-0 flurry of wins, but had dipped recently and were struggling in early district play. On the flip side, the Pride had started slow, but were on a four-game streak that had them rising toward the top of the Dulles District standings

As with the boys game played earlier, Park View owned the first quarter. It was low-scoring, for sure, but a 7-2 lead at the end of the period was just fine with the home-standing Patriots. Overall, play was fairly balanced, but Heritage shooters simply couldn't find the rim while Park View was brimming with confidence.

That Park View momentum evaporated as soon as the Pride made their first three-pointer of the night. When the teams left the court at halftime, the Patriots were the ones that had only scored a single bucket in the period while Heritage opened up a commanding, 19-9, lead.

To make matters tougher for Park View, Heritage applied full court defense for the remainder of the game. And the strategy worked like a charm as the Pride cruised to an impressive road win and continued their hot streak.

Final Score: Heritage 55 - Park View 17
