The Buckingham County High School varsity girls team took no mercy on the Statesmen Friday as the Knights took home a 54-20 win. The win improved the Knights’ season to 6-8.

The Lady Knights led the game from start to finish, never allowing the Statesmen to get close to stealing the lead.

“We had more positives, than negatives tonight,” said head coach Ethan Abruzzo. “I thought everyone did a good job. Everyone got playing time and they all played hard.”

Shae Hurt was Buckingham’s leading scorer with a game-high 18 points.

“It was nice to get one win this week since we play two tough ones next week, against Chatham and Bluestone,” he said.

Buckingham will return to their home court for their game against Chatham on Thursday at 7 p.m. They will then turn around and trek to Bluestone on Friday for a 7 p.m. matchup against the Barons.
