Nothing is easy when it comes to Blue Ridge basketball. You have to fight for every crumb and, even then, it takes a lot of those crumbs to make a meal.
Both the boys and girls teams of Staunton River got a taste of what lies ahead on their Blue Ridge plates, as they each played a pair of BRD foes: Northside and William Byrd.
Of those four games, River escaped with but a single win, when the Lady Eagles topped Northside 43-36, on Wednesday evening.
That same night, their brethren were topped by the Vikings, 70-53.
