HAMPTON – When Brandon Westendorf caught the final out of Hampton-Dumont’s 7-5 win over Fort Dodge St. Edmond on Thursday, July 3, an emotional celebration ensured for the Bulldogs.

It preserved the win for Dalton Hanson, who had the bases loaded with two outs after carrying a 7-4 lead into the seventh.

He gave up a run, but no more to pull off a big win for the Bulldogs at home as they improved to 14-11 overall, 7-8 in the North Central Conference.
