West County Boys Fall in Class 3 Quarters

(Farmington) The West County Bulldogs finally found a second half deficit they couldn’t overcome. After two 4th quarter double digit comebacks in the postseason West County fell to 4th ranked New Madrid County Central 71-38 in the Class 3 Quarterfinal at the Farmington Civic Center on J-98. New Madrid turned the Bulldogs over early and took a double digit lead at 17-7. The Bulldogs stalwart post player Chasten Horton was never able to establish a rhythm with four first half fouls. Even so the Bulldogs hallmark tenacity showed up as they never quit. Ty Harlow bombed in five threes to keep West County within shouting distance in first half…

Harlow, sophomore, led the Dogs with 15.
And Jaxon Campbell closed the third with a feel good play to the delight of a partisan West County crowd…

Division One football and basketball recruit Jadis Jones scored 20 points in the first half and 31 in the game.
West County coach Chris Labruyere had no problem appreciating what his team accomplished this year. In fact he gave credit to a great Eagles team…

West closes the year at 16-12 and advanced to their first quarterfinal in program history.
New Madrid heads to the final four in Springfield at 22-7, where they will play Lafayette County.
