Her sister Micah led the Campers with 14 points. She also had nine blocks and eight rebounds.

The Huskies were down just one after one but Allegany’s 18-6 second quarter gave them a comfortable lead they would coast on.

Courtney Landis added 11 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals for the Campers.

Kirsten Rayner had a game-high 17 for the Huskies.

Allegany (14-9) will play at Mountain Ridge Monday at 7 p.m.

Northern finishes its season with a 5-17 record.

Fort Hill    63

Hancock    34

HANCOCK — Fort Hill had 11 players score, including three in double-figures, in a victory at Hancock in the Maryland Class 1A West Region playoff game Saturday.

The Sentinels balanced attack gave them a 22-6 lead after one. That turned into a 41-12 halftime lead.

Lexi Foreman led Hancock with 13.

Fort Hill (14-6) moves on to play at Southern Monday at 6 p.m.

Calvary Christian    39

Faith Christian    30

HAGERSTOWN — Savannah Reed had a game-high 18 points, was clutch at the free-throw line and had a strong defensive game as well in leading third-seeded Calvary past fourth-seeded Faith in the consolation game of the Mason-Dixon Christian Conference Tournament on Saturday.

Reed, a senior, hit five field goals and 8 of 10 free throws, had seven rebounds and seven steals and was named to the all-tournament and all-conference teams.

Kerenne Shaffer, a sophomore, also had a huge day with 19 rebounds, seven steals and four points for the Eagles, who are 16-8 overall and finished 9-6 in the conference.

Karly Hipsley added nine points and joined Reed on the all-conference team.

Reed scored 11 points in the second quarter to help Calvary to a 19-11 halftime lead. She had six in the third quarter when the Eagles stretched their lead to 33-18.

“Savannah had three great games in the tournament and Kerenne has been just incredible inside and on the boards,’’ said CCA coach Rusty Kitzmiller. “Chesni and Mikala Ultis have been playing outstanding defense, and we played great team defense again today.

“I’m proud of the team and the 16 wins. We’re playing pretty well and now hope to make a little noise in the state tournament.”

Hannah Dopson and Olivia Stoddard had six points for Grace. Amanda Demeses, a 6-foot-2 center who had 12 points in a regular-season win over Calvary, was held to only four.

Calvary is the No. 10 seed in the Maryland Christian Schools State Tournament and will play at No. 7 Covenant Life in Gaithersburg on Monday at 5 p.m.

Covenant Life is four times the size of Calvary in enrollment. The Eagles beat Covenant Life in the 2002 state final, 51-34, which gave the Cresaptown school the first state championship in school history.

Second-seeded New Life, which beat Calvary 39-29 in Friday’s semifinals, upset No. 1 Shalom on Saturday to win the Mason-Dixon Tournament.
