FREDERICK, Md. - Hagerstown Community College withstood a second-half scoring barrage from Denise Campbell to remain unbeaten with a 62-59 victory over Frederick Community College on Saturday.

Campbell scored all 25 of her points after halftime for Frederick, but the Hawks prevailed in a nip-and-tuck battle that went to the wire.

Down by two points, Cara Thompson hit a 3-pointer to give HCC a one-point lead before Alicia Myers hit her only 3 to give the Hawks a 60-56 lead. After a Frederick basket, Thompson hit two free throws and HCC held off Frederick in the final eight seconds.


Shuashanna Faulkner had a pleasing night for HCC with 14 rebounds to help the Hawks to a 42-32 advantage on the glass. She shared scoring honors with Thompson with 10 points.

"It was one of (Faulkner's) better all-around games of the year," said HCC coach Marlys Palmer.
