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.

“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.”
