HAMPTON – Area schools Hampton-Dumont and No. 6 West Fork did its part in showing a huge crowd hustle as the Warhawks pulled away in the second half in the boys end of a basketball doubleheader that went toward Coaches vs. Cancer.

West Fork started out strong, but the Bulldogs pulled to within three in the closing moments of the first half, only to see the Warhawks pull away in the second half.

“We started out really strong – we pushed the ball up the floor and then the press was effective early to get some quick scores and I thought Hampton did a nice job of adjusting,” West Fork coach Frank Schnoes said. “We started picking up with what I thought were some silly fouls we weren’t moving our feet like we needed to and started running a half-court defense."
