Rough start continues for Barons

SoVaNow.com / September 08, 2021
A rough start to the season continued for Bluestone football on Friday night, falling 46-0 to Brunswick in Skipwith.

Bluestone got some early traction but weren’t able to sustain it.

Bluestone kicked off to the visiting Bulldogs to open the game. The Brunswick kick returner broke through the Barons’ special team unit for a 75-yard runback for the TD and the 6-0 score

The Barons responded with what would be their best drive of the night. After taking the kickoff, Bluestone’s ground game came alive.

Kingston Ross had a nice return to get Bluestone going. Facing an early third-and-one situation, Bluestone fumbled but Kevin Price recovered to keep the ball with the Barons.

Bluestone drove deep into Bulldog territory on the strength of a rushing attack led by Zac Gooch and Dravion Nelson. Looking at short yardage for the first down, Bluestone elected to pass which resulted in a penalty.

The Barons needed seven yards and Gooch would come up short on the ensuing fourth down run to turn the ball over to Brunswick. After that exchange, the first period ended with the score, 6-0.

The second quarter is when things quickly apart for Bluestone. The Barons were whistled for several penalties which hurt on both sides of the ball. Brunswick took a 30-0 lead as halftime approached.

Though Bluestone played much better on offense and defense than in their opening night loss to Park View, the game ended with a similar result as Brunswick tacked on several scores in the second half for the 46-0 final.

Bluestone is now 0-2.

Bluestone is home Friday facing Greensville for a 7 p.m. game.
