Hampshire holds on, 13-12

Blocked kick helps seal victory over Buckhannon-Uphsur

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — Hampshire managed to block an extra point point with 2:18 remaining in the fourth quarter and held on for a 13-12 win in high school football Friday evening.

Hampshire (4-2) led 13-6 when Dalton Clower scored on a four-yard run with 8:31 left in the third, but the Buccaneers made it interesting by reaching the end zone with just over two minutes left in the fourth on a 30-yard pass from Dylan Gaudet to Dwayne Riffle.

Going for the tie after failing on a two-point try after its first touchdown, Buckhannon gave up pressure up the middle and a Trojan was able to get a hand on the kick to swat it down and keep Hampshire on top, 13-12.

Shane Ennis got Hampshire’s first points when he ran in from two yards out four minutes into the first quarter. Clower’s four-yard run in the third gave Hampshire a 13-6 advantage.

Clower finished with 90 yards on 23 carries, and Lucas Powers ran 12 times for 85 yards for Hampshire.

Ennis completed 4 of 10 passes for 91 yards. Dane Heavener had three catches for 52 yards.

Marcus Lofton did the most damage for the Buccaneers, scoring on a 76-yard run as part of a 240-yard rushing effort. He also had two interceptions on defense, one of them on the five-yard line to stop Hampshire from putting up another touchdown.

The Trojans have their Homecoming on Friday night when they host Spring Mills.
