Lady Cougars prevail over BMS, 32-27 / December 20, 2017
Park View Middle School defeated the Bluestone 32-27 in Skipwith in a highly competitive and entertaining game.

The contest came down to the wire but in the end it was some exceptional play by Park View’s Aderika Easter and nearly two dozen missed Trojan free throws that sealed the win for the visitors.

With the score knotted at 27-27 with under a minute on the clock, Easter made a great move down the lane to score the deuce. On Bluestone’s inbound, Easter came up with the steal at half court, moved aggressively to the basket and knocked down the deuce and one, for the five point spread and win.

Park View jumped on Bluestone in the opening quarter besting their host 9-2. Park View was led by Easter and An’myah Hicks with four points each.

Bluestone battled back in the second quarter behind the play of Jalan Dailey and Xzaryah Tucker to take the frame 9-6. The teams went to halftime with the score of 15-11 PV.

Bluestone posted a nine-point third while holding PV to eight points. PV led 23-20 entering the fourth.

The fourth quarter saw Bluestone play some of the best basketball they have played this season. PV was unrelenting though and just would not Bluestone overcome them.
