Frankfort holds off Hampshire

Cutter’s double double leads Falcons’ balance in 2-point win

SHORT GAP, W.Va. — Thane Cutter had a double double and Frankfort maintained its poise to hold off Hampshire, 57-55, Thursday night at Frankfort High School.

Cutter was one of three players to score in double figures. He finished with 13 points and had 13 rebounds. Chase Detrick led the team with 16 points and Nick Smith added 11. Gage Shaffer and Colten Dorsey each finished with nine points. Shaffer pulled down eight rebounds.

Hampshire’s Travis Clower was the game’s leading scorer with 26 points but he was the only Trojan to score in double figures. Dane Heavener, Garrett Crawford and David Smith all finished with seven points.

The Falcons avenged an earlier loss at Hampshire when the Trojans won by 35, 73-38.

“The boys played hard,” said Frankfort head coach Scott Slider. “Two weeks ago they beat us by 35. We played hard defensively and that transferred over to offense.”

Hampshire led 11-8 after the first quarter before Frankfort used a 17-10 second period to lead 25-21 at halftime. The Falcons then led 39-36 going into the fourth quarter and used the free-throw line to hold off the Trojans in the fourth quarter.

“We had a six-point lead with about a minute to go and that was the largest of the game,” said Slider.

Frankfort made 13 of 22 from the free-throw line while Hampshire hit 9 of 14.

Hampshire won the junior varsity game 44-33 behind Jordan Grapes’ 13 points. Trent Hamilton had seven for the Falcons.
