Girls’ win streak cut short by Amelia

SoVaNow.com / January 30, 2013
Lady Barons go 1-for-1 against district rivals

The Bluestone varsity girls basketball team ran its winning streak to five before Amelia came to town on Thursday night and pinned a 57-40 loss on the Lady Barons.

Earlier in the week, the Baron girls picked up an important victory in James River District action, downing Cumberland 49-36 on Tuesday.

The split for the week left Bluestone with a 10-6 record overall, 6-4 in the James River District, with key games scheduled this week against Central of Lunenburg and Randolph-Henry.

The girls were riding a four-game win streak in district play at the start of the week, and they continued their momentum with the victory Tuesday against Cumberland. Bluestone steadily built up its lead throughout the game and held off the Lady Dukes in the second half to prevail by 13 points.

Three Lady Barons scored in double figures with Carmen Sturdifen tallying 13 points, Alexis Walton 12 and Bre Roberts 10. Close behind was Courtney Green with eight points, with Stephanie Williams and Laurine Jordan both chipping in three.

On Thursday, the girls ran into a stingy Amelia squad in a 57-40 loss. After trailing 10-9 at the end of the first quarter, the Lady Dukes put the defensive clamps on their hosts, allowing only eight points for Bluestone in the second quarter. The Lady Barons fared little better in the third and fourth periods — tallying 11 points in each frame — as Amelia pulled away to the decisive victory.

Against Amelia, Bre Roberts and Laurine Jordan led the offense with 12 and 11 points, respectively. Alexis Walton had eight, Carmen Sturdifen added seven and Tiffany Davis scored two points to complete the Bluestone total.
