The New Franklin Lady Bulldogs basketball team threw a wrench in the CAC standings Friday night by knocking off the Glasgow Lady Yellowjackets 46-43.
The Lady Bulldogs, improving to 17-6 overall and 7-3 in the conference, outscored or matched Glasgow in all four quarters and led 15-14 after one, 24-22 at the half and 33-30 after three quarters of play. Meanwhile, in the final period, New Franklin played Glasgow even with 13 points.
New Franklin coach Morgan Vetter said even though the girls didn’t have Cassie Armentrout due to sickness the girls still played extremely well and tough.
“Madison Madison played one of the best games I’ve seen her play,” Vetter said. “They were all brought in and worked hard from start to finish. As always, we need to improve on free throws, but a win is a win. We’ll pick up next week with two tough games against Cairo and Madison.”
As for Matney, the junior standout led the Lady Bulldogs with 24 points. Grace Hundley chipped in eight points while Shelby Breshears added seven, Lilly Oser three and Jasmine Himmelberg and Lauren Evans each with two.

The Glasgow boys basketball team proved why they are state-ranked Friday night in CAC action against the New Franklin Bulldogs.
The Yellowjackets, ranked No. 5 in last week’s Missouri Basketball Coaches Association Basketball Poll, opened the first half with a 35-24 lead against New Franklin and then outscored the Bulldogs 39-20 in the second half for the victory.
New Franklin coach Jim Schlotzhauer said the boys were beaten by a better executing, more physical team. “We Austin Jones out, we were no match for their senior lead team,” Schlotzhauer said. “They scored the majority of their 74 from the inside of five feet or the line. There is no way we win a game giving up that many good looks from those spots. Hats off to Glasgow for a well played game. They showed why they have been the best team in the conference this year.”
Mason Bailey led all scorers for New Franklin, who dropped to 12-10 overall and 7-3 in the CAC, with 17 points. Bailey Lyons chipped in nine, Gavin Bishop and Jackson Dorson four each, Tyler Perkins three and Aden Jones, Kolby Anson and Brendan Hundley each with two points.
