Playing with a team of nine, the Bluestone girls soccer team refuses to give up or give in as they continue their James River District regular season by hosting non-conference Park View High School on Friday.

Though the team is 0-4-1 on the season, other than a couple of blowouts — a 10-2 loss to Goochland and a 10-3 loss to Prince Edward — these girls have been holding their own in competition.

Goochland is the only squad this season to match Bluestone nine-nine on the playing field. All other opponents have run a full team.

The girls opened their season with a 3-4 loss to Prince Edward, followed by a 4-4 tie match with Park View and another 3-6 loss to PE.

Barons coach Thomas Wells expressed that he is proud of his girls and the effort they have put forth all season.

Kaitlin Barretta and Kayla Williams are the team’s seniors and have done a good job of keeping the Lady Barons competitive. Match time for the PV game is 6 p.m.
