Drury girls hoops caught by Hampshire at Coaches vs. Cancer tourney


CHESHIRE -- The free throw did in Drury's girls basketball team on Saturday at the Coaches vs. Cancer Tournament.

Hampshire scored 16 of its 18 fourth-quarter points at the line, allowing it to rally from an eight-point deficit and beat the Blue Devils 50-48 at Hoosac Valley.

"We need to do a better job adjusting," Drury coach Jay Meehan said. "If it's being called tight, we have to adjust. Clearly, we didn't."

Drury (5-7) led this game 30-18 at the half, but a combination of turnovers and missed shots led to just four Blue Devil points in the third quarter.

Still, they held the lead in the fourth before Hampshire chipped away at the line. Bri Weltlich led Hampshire with 20 points, while Katie O'Connor scored 14 more for the victors.

"All year, we've had moments where we just ... [get] caught up," Meehan said. "We lost a bit of our focus, we got a little frustrated and kind of let it get away from us a little bit."

Freshman Sarah Lamarre scored 13 points to lead Drury, with Molly Moulton adding 10 more.

The tournament did raise $3,592 going toward research.
