Hampden 44, Bangor 36

At Hampden, junior point guard Nolan Turner and junior forward Jacob Moore sparked a fourth-quarter comeback that propelled the Broncos to a season-opening win over their Class A rivals.

Bangor led 33-27 through three quarters, but Moore scored five unanswered points and Turner followed with a drive through the lane that gave Hampden a 34-33 lead. Bangor answered with a free throw by Dan Taft and then a short jumper by Ryan Larochelle with 5:16 left, but those would be the Rams’ last points.

Hampden’s Brad Dolan made 1-of-2 from the free-throw line to pull the Broncos within 36-35, then Moore – who had struggled throughout the evening with his perimeter shot – hit a 15-footer from the left of the free-throw line to give Hampden the lead for good at 37-36 with 3:10 to play.

Turner came up with a key steal with about 2:30 left, and Hampden then worked on the clock and forced Bangor to foul. The Broncos made 7 of 8 from the line in the game’s final 62 seconds as Turner, Greg O’Donnell and Moore made two each and Dolan added one more in the final seconds.

Moore finished with 14 points – nine in the fourth quarter – to go with 10 rebounds, three blocked shots and three steals for Hampden. Turner added eight points, six rebounds, three steals and three assists, while Dolan scored seven points for the Broncos.

Hampden 44, Bangor 41

At Red Barry Gymnasium, the visiting Broncos rallied from a nine-point first half deficit and Michaela Stephenson scored the winning basket with 2:12 remaining in regulation as Hampden Academy triumphed in a KVAC Class A North opener.

Stephenson, a sophomore guard, kissed in a layup from the right block off an inbounds pass from Julia Snyder underneath the Broncos’ hoop.

The teams traded missed shots and turnovers the next 1:30, and Snyder snuffed out Bangor’s last hopes with a steal with 20 seconds to play, and Whitney Moore hit both ends of a 1-and-1 to salt the victory.

Hampden trailed 12-4 after the first quarter and 18-9 with 3:30 left in the first half, but outscored the Rams 35-23 the rest of the way.

Stephenson led the Broncos with 11 points and was a force on the defensive end with five steals. Moore finished with eight off the bench and grabbed six rebounds.

Kate Freudenberger’s 11 points led the Rams while Stephanie Comstock finished with six points, five rebounds and four steals.
