In a Friday, round-one 3A Sectional 29 contest at Lawrenceburg Friday, Franklin County’s comeback against Madison fell short, 50-46.  The Lady Wildcats trailed 15-6 after the first quarter and tried to play catchup from there.  Franklin County got as close as one in the fourth but the Cubs eventually won by four.

Abby Orschell and Taylor McCreary led Franklin County in scoring with 15 and 11 points respectively.  Abby also had 5 assists.  Sister Jenna Orschell pulled down 13 rebounds and added 7 points.

Madison’s Jade Nutley had a game-high 25.  Paige Young followed with 9.

The key stat of the game was free throw shooting.  While both teams shot over 70 percent, the Cubs won on volume making 13 of 17 to only 5 of 7 by the Wildcats.

Madison advanced to Saturday’s semifinal against Lawrenceburg.
