CUMBERLAND — Sarah Lowery recorded a double-double of 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead Fort Hill to its second win in as many nights with a 57-25 triumph over Hope for Hyndman.

Fort Hill (2-2) hosts Southern at 3:30 on Saturday. The Hornets begin play in the Calvary Christian Christmas Tournament today when they face off against the hosts.

Hampshire    58

Hedgesville    31

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. — Hampshire’s full-court press and Mary Feaster’s outside shooting spotted the Trojans a 23-point lead in the first quarter of their rout Thursday night at Hedgesville.

Feaster made six three-pointers and another two-point shot to finish with a game-leading 20 points. Emilynn Corbin added nine points and Taylor Harwood had seven.

Defensive pressure led to a lot of steals for the Trojans (17) and to lots of easy shots early on.

“We decided the game in the first quarter,” said Hampshire’s coach Al Straley. “Our full-court press generated plenty of easy baskets and set the tone of the game. It allowed us to build such a lead that we didn’t need to press anymore after the first.”

Hampshire got out to a 27-4 lead at the close of the first quarter and was up 38-13 at halftime. It had a 50-17 lead entering the fourth.

Courtney Sansone and Charity Gillespie had nine points each in the loss.

Hampshire won the junior varsity game 55-19.

Now 2-2, the Trojans play at Martinsburg Saturday at 2:45.
