JV Barons rout JRD rival Amelia, 57-19 / December 24, 2018

The Bluestone jayvee basketball team made full use of their offensive abilities on Wednesday night, rolling past James River District opponent Amelia, 57-19.

The win improves the Junior Barons to 2-3 in the district and 2-5 overall, good enough for fourth place in the JRD. Prince Edward at 3-0 holds the top spot. Buckingham and Randolph-Henry at 2-0 round out the top-three spots. Nottoway sits in fifth place with a JRD record of 1-0.

Victor Small and Trayquan Powell charged the Barons’ offense on the night, posting 13 points each. The Barons placed seven more players in the scoring column, with Nic Abernathy contributing nine points.

The Barons’ defense was punishing on the night, holding the Raiders to four points in the first period and five in the second. Bluestone by contrast knocked down 18 first quarter points and posted 11 in the second frame. Powell and Small — each with six points in the first — combined for 12 of the 18 Bluestone points.

In the second period Powell led his team with a four-point effort as Bluestone went to halftime leading 29-9. The Barons also looked good at the line in the first half shooting for six-of-nine.

The remainder of the game continued to be all Barons. Bluestone held Amelia to a total of 10 points in the second half.

Bluestone reeled off 16 points in the third and finished out the game with a 12 point fourth. Small netted five points in the third to lead the team. Garrett Allgood closed out the game for the Barons in the final frame with five points of the team total of 12.

The Barons were two-of-seven from the stripe in the final half of play. The team committed only eight fouls in the game to dominate in the 57-19 win.
