ROMNEY, W.Va. — Sam Hoban poured in 27 points and fourth-ranked Keyser turned up the defense in the second half and charged past Hampshire, 56-43, in their Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference girls basketball game Tuesday evening.

Carly Grady went 6 for 6 from the foul line and finished with 14 points and Lexi Carr added 12 for the Golden Tornado (10-5, 7-3 AMAC), which has won five of its last six.

Allyson Fout had 11 points and Ericka Gordon seven rebounds for Hampshire (6-8, 2-7).

Hoban made only five field goals in her 27-point game, but three were from beyond the three-point line. She had a big night from the free-throw line, hitting 14 of 18 tries.
