HAMPTON – A last-second shot by Charlie Flickinger that would have tied the game bounced off the rim and away, allowing the visiting AGWSR boys basketball team to escape with a 47-44 victory in the two team’s opening contest on Monday, Dec. 2.

Flickinger, who scored 15 to lead the Bulldogs, was 4-of-16 from beyond the arc.

“Charlie can shoot it and I think he did a nice job early of going out and trying to hit his shot and trying to get some looks,” Hampton-Dumont coach Heath Walton said. “The big thing for Charlie is to add a couple more counters to his jump shot because he can shoot it from the perimeter and now you have to work on those and really work on being a scorer for us.”

But AGWSR was 11-of-17 from the free throw line in the second half, 7-of-11 in the fourth quarter, including Sully Hofmeister, who was 5-of-7 in that final eight-minutes and finished with nine points.
