Bluestone girls tie Nottoway in soccer

SoVaNow.com / March 27, 2013
The Bluestone girls soccer squared off last Wednesday against the Nottoway Lady Cougars in a hard-fought game that went two overtime periods before ending in a 1-1 tie.

The game marked the district opener for the Lady Barons, who won their first two non-district games, including the season opener in a romp over Park View. The Nottoway girls proved another matter as both team battled hard through two halves and two five-minute overtime periods.

Despite taking ample shots at goal, the Lady Barons were able to punch the ball into the net only once, in the early stages of the game. Evie Gordon, Carmen Sturdifen, Hannah-Rose Tucker and Keri Lenhart kept up the pressure on the Lady Cougars as they took the majority of Bluestone’s scoring chances, but the Nottoway girls dodged further trouble after allowing the lone goal.

Bluestone had one opportunity to pull ahead in overtime on a scoring attempt by Tucker, but the attempt fell short.

The Bluestone girls will continue play this week as they travel to Cumberland today (Wednesday) to take on the Lady Dukes in a 5 p.m. match.
