Jayvee Barons go 2-0 with wins over R-H Statesmen, PE Eagles / December 13, 2017
The Bluestone javyee basketball team opened district competition on a great note, besting Prince Edward 55-42 Monday and defeating Randolph-Henry a week earlier in a 35-33 squeaker.

Bluestone had strong first and second quarters, scoring 10 and 14, respectively, while holding the PE Eagles to a 13-point first half.

Nic Abernathy posted eight points in the first half to lead the Baron offense. Bluestone’s Larry Bullock added seven.

Bluestone continued to outplay PE in the third quarter, dropping in 16 points.

The Randolph-Henry win last week was spirited and the Barons kept their heads as the game went down to the wire for the 35-33 victory, though Bluestone was up 17-4 at the half.

The Barons actually got the lead back with under 15 seconds on the clock and then were able to hold off the Eagles in Farmville — quite the feat.

Abernathy posted 12 points to lead the Barons. Kejuan Hester added 10, Shearin followed with six, Mayo had four and Hayes three to wrap up the scoring.
