Jayvee Barons lose first district game, but bounce back

SoVaNow.com / January 30, 2013
The Bluestone jayvee boys suffered their first district loss of the season last week against Cumberland, but the Junior Barons bounced back two nights later to topple league foe Amelia.

On Tuesday, Bluestone lost to Cumberland 37-34. The difference proved to be the fourth quarter, when the jayvee offense went stone-cold and managed only four points. Cumberland posted nine points in the frame to overcome a 30-28 deficit at the start of the quarter

The visiting Dukes struggled in the first half, falling behind 22-13, but they outscored the Junior Barons 15-8 in the third quarter and by five points in the final quarter to take a tight game.

Bluestone spread the offense around with sophomore Dante Roberts leading the team with 10 points, followed by freshman Keith Patrick with eight. Fuquan Hayes had six points, Antwuan Tucker and Na’Juwuan Davis each had four points and Savon Mason contributed two to round out the scoring.

On Thursday, the jayvees got back on the winning track with a 50-39 victory over the Amelia Junior Dukes. Bluestone jumped out to a 10-3 lead in the third quarter and outscored Amelia 29-23 after the half to win comfortably.

Four Barons crackled double figures against Amelia. Keith Patrick led the scoring parade with 12 points, with Dante Roberts and Antwuan Tucker both close behind with 11 points each. Kashawn Hilliard also had a big night with 10 points and a whopping 14 rebounds.

Na’Juwuan Davis added five points and Savon Mason had one.

With the split last week in district action, the jayvees Barons are 7-1 in James River District action, 9-2 overall.
