Thursday the Windjammers led once in the game scoring the first basket. Hampden took a13-11 first-quarter lead and built it to an 8-point 26-18 halftime lead. The Broncos came out of the locker room at the end of the half and exploded into the third quarter where they built a 45-28 lead heading into the final stanza where they increased the advantage to the 20-point win.

The Camden Hills starters played well with Hampden in the first half, but without the bench depth that the Broncos have the Windjammers ran out of gas trying to play up to Hampden's up-tempo game.

Scoring for Hampden Academy was, Baily Donavan and Sophia Narofsky had 13 points each; Brooklynn Scott nine; Camryn Bouchard eight; Alydia Brillant seven; Braylee Wildman four; Cassidy Burke three; Emily Murphy two; and Jordan Lockhard one. The Broncos were 14-of-21 (67 percent) from the foul line. They knocked down four 3-point baskets with two from Bouchard and one each from Burke and Brillant.
