Hampshire defeats B. Springs

By JACK HILL III / Staff Correspondent

The Hampshire Trojans wasted no time in getting their offense together.

The Trojans built a 20-0 halftime lead on their way to a 33-12 victory over the Berkeley Springs Indians on Friday night in a West Virginia high school football season opener.

Despite the loss, Berkeley Springs coach Angelo Luvara was optimistic about his team.

"I told the kids that it is a long season and that we just have to keep getting better each time out," Luvara said. "We have done a great job in the weight room. I think that we have the potential for a great future, if we keep working hard."

Bryan Wright rushed for 189 yards on 23 carries for the Trojans. He ran for two touchdowns and also caught a touchdown pass.


"I thought the offensive line and all of our backs did a great job," Hampshire coach Sean Biser said. "I definitely thought that it was a total team effort. Angelo Luvara is trying to put together a good football program here at Berkeley Springs. I really think that he is going to do a great job here."

Daniel Alkire completed 7 of his 11 passes for 112 yards and threw three touchdown passes for Hampshire.

Hampshire got on the scoreboard 2:52 into the game on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Alkire to Chuck Braithwaite.

Wright rushed for an 18-yard touchdown with 3:03 remaining in the first quarter and a 1-yard touchdown with 9:29 to go in the second quarter to help the Trojans build their 20-0 halftime lead.

Alkire fired a 43-yard touchdown pass to Todd Buckley in the third quarter and a 19-yard touchdown pass to Bryan Wright in the fourth quarter for Hampshire.

Mark Rockwell threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Briscoe in the third quarter and a 76-yard touchdown pass to Jamie Moore in the fourth quarter for Berkeley Springs. Rockwell finished with 135 passing yards.
