The Bluestone girls basketball team welcomed Chatham High School to Skipwith Friday for Bluestone's first scrimmage of the preseason.

The game was played with each quarter starting out 0-0. Bluestone was unable to outright win any quarter of play, but the girls did show some good signs of competitiveness.

Chatham won the first quarter 14-6 after jumping out to a 9-0 lead. Bluestone got the score to 9-4 at the 2:14 mark behind some improved defensive play.

Destiny Pettus, Erin Strider and Iesha Hicks got a bucket each for Bluestone in the first quarter. The girls were eight-of-16 from the line in the first.

The second quarter ended at 20-12, in Chatham’s favor, and was the most competitive quarter for each team. Chatham hit the first shot but Bluestone’s Kayla Williams responded with a nice put-back.

Hicks and Pettus got back-to-back baskets for the 5-2 Bluestone lead. Strider hit a shot as did teammate Tia Canada.

Bluestone held the lead until 10-8 when Chatham went on a 6-2 run and ended the quarter up 20-12.

The third quarter ended at 25-8. Bluestone never really getting their feet up under them. Pettus dropped a trey, a deuce and a foul shot for six points. Madison Lort had a bucket.

Chatham walked out to a 13-0 lead before Lort hit a charity shot in the 17-7 fourth final. Hicks knocked down a three and Williams added another bucket.

The Lady Barons were scheduled to scrimmage Halifax County last night (Tuesday) before going on Thanksgiving break.
