Baron girls exit region playoffs / February 26, 2020
The Bluestone varsity girls basketball team got off to a hot start in Region 2A first-round play on Saturday in Farmville, but couldn’t sustain a one-point halftime lead and lost 47-39 to the Prince Edward Eagles, ending a successful season.

Bluestone (4-19) entered the game as the 10-seed. Prince Edward at 12-12 held the seven-seed. The Lady Eagles lost to No. 2 Poquoson in the second round on Monday night to end their season.

Bluestone was led Saturday by sophomore guard/forward Jaylin Dailey who scored 16 points. PE’s Dinasia Scott with 17 points topped all scorers; teammate Ke’Mya Rux joined Scott in double figures with 11 points.

Bluestone took a 7-3 lead at the end of the first quarter. Dailey had a trey and deuce in the opening stanza.

The Lady Eagles would gain some footing in the second period of play and edged Bluestone at 12-9. The teams went to the half with the Lady Barons leading by one point at 16-15.

The third period is where things grew uncertain for the Baron girls. PE came out in the third frame and rattled off 25 points, outscoring Bluestone 25-3.

The Lady Barons bounced back to win the final period in lopsided fashion, 18-7. But the disastrous third quarter opened a deficit the local girls were just unable to overcome in the eight-point loss.
