Barons kickers host Greensville in region / May 22, 2019

After finishing the regular season with a James River District of 10-5-1, the Bluestone boys soccer team enters the VHSL Region 2A as the No. 7 seed. The Barons were scheduled to host No. 10 seed Greensville in Skipwith Tuesday.

Bluestone went 4-4 in the first half of the regular schedule and finished out the second half of the season with a record of 6-1-1.

Senior players Dale Sturdifen Jr., Gabe Giammatteo, Robert Tyner, Evan Newton, James Brown, and Jeremy Goodwin continue to provide power on both sides of the ball. The team has several juniors, sophomores, and freshman who have been instrumental in several of the wins Bluestone had this season.

The Barons’ regional opponent, Greensville County, is in the Tri-Rivers District and finished out their season with a record of 7-7. If the Barons win on Tuesday, they will travel to Goochland, the No. 2 seed, on Thursday.

Goochland finished their season in first place in the JRD with a record of 16-0. Goochland defeated the Barons in a 5-0 shutout in Goochland in the first half of the season. But when the Bulldogs visited Bluestone just a couple of weeks ago the Barons played them closely, only losing the match by one goal 2-1 in overtime.
