FALL RIVER: The Lockview High School Dragons boys basketball team held their home opener last month to kickoff the Metro High school basketball league season. They welcomed Citadel High Phoenix to the school in Fall River.

While the Dragons held the lead at half time—narrowly—the Phoenix turned it on in the second half to come away with the victory, but not without having a tough battle with the Lockview squad.
