Bluestone kickers play tough but fall to Prince Edward 3-1 / April 24, 2019

Returning to action after a week of Spring Break, the Bluestone boys varsity soccer team lost a tight road match to Prince Edward by the score of 3-1 Monday evening in Farmville.

The loss has Bluestone in fifth place in the James River District with a record of 4-3. Prince Edward improved to 7-3, good for second place in the district.

In Monday’s match the teams played a defensive first half. Bluestone controlled the ball for much of the first half but was unable to score. Yet, the Barons were also able to hold PE scoreless in the first half for a 0-0 score at the break.

In the second half of play, PE would strike first in the 14th minute for the 1-0 lead. Two minutes later the Eagles posted their second goal of the match.

Bluestone got its first and only goal in the 23rd minute when Zach Newton scored on a crossing pass off an assist from Cooper Carter. The Barons put the hammer down after this attacking frequently, but PE’s defense continued to play well and was able to hold off Bluestone.

The Eagles scored the final goal of the match in the 31st minute for the 3-1 final. Barons head coach Thomas Wells said that despite the loss, it was a great match between two solid teams. “Our guys played a great game against a good team,” Wells stated.

Bluestone is scheduled to host Amelia today in Skipwith. The team completes the week on Friday when they travel to Charlotte Courthouse to take on Randolph-Henry.

Amelia currently holds fourth place in the JRD with a record of 6-4. Randolph-Henry sits behind Bluestone in sixth place with a record of 3-4. The Barons defeated R-H and Amelia earlier this season by scores of 4-0 and 3-2, respectively.
