HAMPTON – Win or lose, both Hampton-Dumont and West Fork girls basketball teams won big against cancer.

Playing before the biggest crowd of the season, the No. 11-ranked Bulldogs pulled away against the Warhawks, who made it closer at the end on a 6-0 run in an eventual 62-47 H-D win in the fifth annual Coaches vs. Cancer game.

“Just a great cause, you know?” H-D coach Chad Johnson said. “I think everybody if you look back has been touched by cancer whether it was somebody in your family or somebody you know, so I think it is an outstanding cause. Hopefully, more people do this.”
