    Hampshire comes up just short at Woodstock
    Allen Oshinski

    Hampshire just came up one shot short.

    The Whip-Purs made a couple of key shots down the stretch, but couldn't get a final one to go down, and they fell to Woodstock, 61-59, in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division boys basketball action in Woodstock Tuesday night.

    Ryan Cork (13 points) hit 2 big 3-pointers down the stretch to keep Hampshire in it. The first made it 59-56 with 18.6 seconds to go. After Woodstock's Mitch Kohley made 1 of 2 free throws, Cork hit another bomb to get Hampshire within a point. Nick Kubiak added 1 free throw for the Blue Streaks, and Cork couldn't get a clean look at a game-tying or winning shot. His desperation heave hit the side of the backboard as time expired.

    Hampshire led 42-37 after 3 quarters, but the Blue Streaks surged ahead in the fourth by hitting their free throws: they made 11 of 14 in the quarter while Hampshire shot just 2.

    Matt Bridges also scored 13 points to go with 7 rebounds, and Trey Shcramm added 11 points off the bench for Hampshire (7-11, 3-2).

    Kohley led all scorers with 22 points, while Mason Sutter added 14 for Woodstock (8-9).

    "It's just little things," said Hampshire coach Bob Barnett, who ticked off several miscues by underclassmen down the stretch. "We'll learn from that. It's unfortunate, but that's going to happen on the road. We get them again at our place, too."

    After falling behind early, Hampshire led through most of the middle periods. The Whips took a 49-43 advantage on a Shcramm 3-pointer early in the fourth, but couldn't put the Blue Streaks away.

    A Kohley 3-pointer tied it at 49 and, after Hampshire regained the lead at 53-49, Woodstock went on a 10-0 run to go ahead for good with time winding down.

    Woodstock was able to pound the boards with its "twin towers" of Damian Stoneking and Kubiak, both listed at 6-foot-7, although it was the 6-5 Sutter who led the way with 9. In all, Woodstock held a 31-22 advantage on the backboards.
