The JV Lady Chargers are now 4-0 on the season.
Nila Robinson came off the bench to score 10 points to pace MHS. Point guard Jessica Dixon also tallied 10 points.
They were followed by Bridgette Self with 8 points, Brittin Payne 6, and Joey Stinchcomb and Lara Lucas with 2 each.
Although the Lady Chargers are still undefeated, they continue to work toward the team’s goal, which is “back to the basics,” said MHS coach Benny Burrell.
“I was very pleased with the way the girls were able to make the quick changes in adjustments on the defensive sets we have been working on,” said Burrell. “We were able to play a man-to-man defense, as well as 1-3-1, 2-3 and 2-1-2 zones.”
Middlesex held Rappahannock to 3 points in the first quarter, 5 in the second quarter, 2 in the third quarter and 0 in the fourth quarter.
All of the JV Lady Chargers, including Felicia Marsh, Heather Blankenship, Kendra Reed, Lisa Shoaff, Allison Payne and Brianna Dunlevy, helped to hold the JV Raiders to only 2 points in the second half.
The JV Lady Chargers’ next game is Tuesday, January 5, at Rappahannock.
The MHS JVs will host King William on Thursday, January 7, in their Tidewater District opener.
Both games are at 6 p.m., and the varsity games follow at 7:30 p.m.
