Bluestone girls soccer moves into first place / May 15, 2019
The Bluestone girls soccer team picked up a 3-2 win over Goochland last week to move into first place in the James River District standings.

Bluestone is now 10-3, 7-1 in the JRD. Goochland — who held first place the entire regular season until last week — sits a half a game out of first place at 6-1 in the district and 9-5 overall behind Bluestone.

Bluestone finished up last week’s competition with a rematch against non-district opponent Appomattox County in Skipwith on Friday and dropped the contest 2-0. Appomattox defeated Bluestone earlier in the season 1-0, a match won in overtime.

The team has two matches remaining on the regular schedule entering this week of competition, both against JRD opponents. Bluestone faces Prince Edward in Farmville today.

The team returns home for their final game of the regular season Thursday against Randolph-Henry.

Bluestone bested PE earlier by the score of 5-0 and won over Randolph-Henry 5-0, their first match of the season.

In the game against Goochland, Bluestone held Pink Night in honor and memory of those who are fighting and surviving cancer as well as those who fought until the very end.

During the game, the team held raffles and drawings for prizes and raised $500 for the Mecklenburg County Cancer Society. MCCS member Carrilee Spence accepted the donation.
