Pendleton - Both the Pendleton Heights girls and boys basketball teams will continue their quests for the Madison County title as they downed the Frankton Eagles in first-round play Dec. 29 at Frankton High School.

After fighting two opponents, the Eagles and questionable first half officiating, the girls prevailed 51-44 with the help of Kenzie Gustin’s free-throw scoring after Frankton was hit with three technical fouls.

When Eagle Kelsey Key hit a three-pointer it brought Frankton within two. Gustin was fouled and sank one to put the Arabians up 47-44. Frankton assistant Ty Riddle called a timeout. However, the Eagles were out of timeouts and it resulted in a technical foul, and Gustin was able to convert both shots to push the score to 49-44.

An irate Riddle was not only hit with two more technical fouls, he was tossed from the game. Gustin hit 2 of 4 from the line, giving the Arabians a final of 51-44.
