Hampton football falls short in 64-60 thriller PDF E-mail

Hampton’s football team flew back from a big deficit, but fell just short Friday night at Mead in a 64-60 loss.

The Hawks (0-6) faced a 64-40 deficit at halftime, but responded with 20 second-half points, including a 25-yard touchdown pass from Tristan Boyce to Josh Spanjer with 2:45 to play. But Hampton missed the two-point conversion, and the Raiders held on.
