Hampshire edges Genoa-Kingston in regional semifinal

SHARE Hampshire edges Genoa-Kingston in regional semifinal

Fans at Burlington Central had the privilege of witnessing a competitive boys basketball game decided by a shot in the final seconds Wednesday. Unfortunately for the player who shot the ball, he really couldn’t see much of it.

Hampshire’s Matt Llamas was elbowed earlier in the game, causing his left eye to swell shut, but he hit a clutch shot with 8.9 seconds remaining to lift Hampshire to a 62-61 win over Genoa-Kingston in a semifinal of the Class 3A Burlington Central Regional. The top-seeded Whip-Purs will advance to Friday’s championship game against No. 3 seed Kaneland.
