Bluestone girls advance to region quarterfinals, bow out to East Rockingham

SoVaNow.com / March 05, 2014

The Lady Barons started region playoff action in the VHSL 2-A East Region tournament by defeating Nandua last Monday 44-25. The win set the team up to meet East Rockingham High School in the quarterfinals on Thursday.

East Rockingham, of Elkton, put an end to the Lady Barons’ postseason run with a 16-point victory, 67-51. The Lady Barons couldn’t seem to buy a shot in first half action and scored only 12 points at halftime.

Bluestone had three points in the opening period and nine points in the second quarter.

In contrast, East Rockingham scored 15 points in the first and 18 points in the second to take a 33-12 lead into halftime.

Bluestone came out in the third and gained considerable ground, outpacing Rockingham 21-11. Bluestone also had great point production in the final quarter, connecting for 18 points, but the 12-point first half was just too much for the Lady Barons to overcome.

East Rockingham recorded 23 points in the final period.
