Bluestone girls continue surge with 64-35 rout of Nottoway

SoVaNow.com / January 23, 2013
The Bluestone Lady Barons thumped Nottoway 64-35 last Tuesday night in Skipwith as the varsity girls continued their resurgent play after struggling earlier in the season.

With Bluestone’s other game of the week, Friday night against Goochland, postponed due to snow, the Lady Barons ended the week with a 5-3 record in the James River District, 9-5 overall.

The victory over Nottoway was the fourth straight for the Lady Barons since the holiday break. They were slated to play again last night (Tuesday) at Cumberland, then host Amelia on Friday.

On Tuesday, the tone was set at the outset as the Lady Barons held Nottoway to only seven points in the first quarter. At the same time, the girls put together a balanced offensive attack with six players scoring in the opening frame. Carmen Sturdifen in particular had the hot hand in the first quarter, finishing with six points.

Bluestone pulled away to a 31-14 lead at halftime as the girls stayed in control in the second quarter. The Lady Cougars struggled on offense as they put only seven points on the board, compared to 14 for the Baron girls.

The third quarter was the best offensively for both teams as Nottoway broke out of its slump and scored 17 points in the frame. But the Lady Barons were up to the challenge, posting a 23-point quarter to lead at the end of the third, 54-31.

With the game all but decided at the start of the final period, the Lady Cougars closed out with four points to come up short by the 64-35 score.

For the game, the Lady Barons got 18 points from Sturdifen, 11 from Bre Roberts and 10 from Alexis Walton. Two players, Laurine Jordan and Keshana Tucker, chipped in seven points, and Tiffany Davis added five. Courtney Green had four and Stephanie Wilson two.
