The Bluestone Barons celebrated Senior Night on Friday with a dominating 34-6 win over the Randolph-Henry Statesmen. With the win, the Barons improved to 3-6 on the season, 2-4 in the James River District.

In addition to marking another step in the turnaround of the program under new heah coach James Fowlkes, the Barons honored the team’s seniors, many of whom have stuck with the program in tough times. Bluestone snapped a 51-game losing streak earlier this season and also achieved its first-ever victory as a member of the James River District with a win earlier this season against Cumberland. The outcome over the Statesmen Friday night doubled that feat.

Seniors who were honored at halftime include the following players: Dhaakir Barnes, Chavalous Canada, Cornelius Goode, Donavin Roberts, Marques Sydnor, Marcus Tucker, Christopher Watson and Khalil Rishawn.

The Barons are scheduled to finish out their season this Friday when they travel to Buckingham, hoping to score one more win for the year against the Knights. Game time is 7 p.m.
