Baron girls sweep district foes R-H and Buckingham

SoVaNow.com / January 16, 2013
The Bluestone varsity girls basketball team knocked off the Buckingham Lady Knights by a 77-51 score Friday night at home.

Earlier in the week, the Lady Barons bested the Randolph-Henry girls, 43-34, in action at Charlotte Courthouse to complete the sweep of James River District rivals.

On Friday, the Lady Barons trounced Buckingham behind Bre Roberts’ 22 points, plus 14 by Laurine Jordan. Alexis Walton also cracked double figures for Bluestone with 10.

The Lady Barons came out sizzling, scoring 24 points in the first quarter to double the Buckingham points total. The girls tacked another 24 points on the scoreboard in the second period to lead at halftime, 48-23.

The second half was basically a wash for both teams as Bluestone won going away.

Earlier in the week, the Lady Barons showed they could win a more defensive-oriented matchup, too, topping the Lady Statesmen of Randolph-Henry 43-34. This time the girls struggled at times to score, but they played lockdown defense, especially in the second and third quarters when Randolph-Henry scored five and four points, respectively.

Leading the way for the Lady Barons against R-H were Roberts with 12 points, Tiffany Davis with 10 and Carmen Sturdifen with eight.

The Bluestone girls continue their district schedule this week with games against Nottoway last night (Tuesday) and Goochland on Friday.
