Ten Notable Home Wins:
1.7.1994 - #4 4A Glendale 53 - #1 4A Jefferson City 45 - Not only did the Falcons knock off the state's #1 ranked team for only the second time in program history, but they ended Jeff City's 15-game winning streak dating back to their state title run in 1993.
1.22.2011 - Glendale 79 - #4 Class 5 Kickapoo 75 - Glendale's 14-game, 9-year losing streak to Kickapoo ended with the upset of the state's fourth ranked team in the championship game of the 2011 Winter Classic. It was actually the second home game for Glendale that day! Weather caused the tournament to be contested in just two days instead of three. Glendale had defeated Columbia Hickman that afternoon to advance to the title game.
12.27.1972 - Glendale 47 - Sedalia Smith-Cotton 46 - Future Mizzou great Kim Anderson and Sedalia Smith-Cotton finished third in Class L in 1973, but they lost two out of three meetings against the Falcons. This was the second of the two defeats with Glendale all-stater Tom Shultz scoring a driving layup with :24 seconds left to give the Falcons a one-point edge and then blocking a Smith-Cotton shot with :6 seconds left to secure the win!
2.15.1991 - #9 4A Glendale 57 - #5 4A Hillcrest 50 - Between 1982 & 1991, Glendale and Hillcrest battled many times in meaningful conference and post-season games, but the '90-'91 season found both teams ranked for two of three meetings. This was the first of the two with Glendale controlling much of the game except for a very effective third quarter press by Hillcrest that cut the Falcons double-digit lead to three.
12.1.1967 - Glendale 50 - Columbia Hickman 48 - Coach Jim McLeod and the Kewpies had a great run (299-89 in 15 years), but two state bound teams hit troubled waters against Glendale. In 1968, Hickman placed second in state, but lost a back-and-forth battle with the Falcons in Springfield. Glendale junior Pete Lollar, with only five seconds left in the game, stole a Hickman inbounds pass and scored with a driving layup to break a 48-48 tie.
2.6.1987 - #3 4A Glendale 58 - #3 3A K.C. Paseo 40 - Anthony Peeler, future Mizzou & NBA star, and his Paseo Pirates only won a single game out of four meetings against Mike Keltner's Glendale Falcons. This particular match-up saw both teams ranked in their respective classes and a solid start-to-finish Falcon victory!
1.29.1999 - #1 4A Glendale 73 - #6 4A Kickapoo 58 - "This is a war!" exclaimed Missouri Sports Hall of Fame broadcaster Don West during the local cable telecast of this meeting of arch rivals in 1999. One of the largest crowds in recent Falcon Court history witnessed Glendale, in the midst of its best ever season, take a solid fifteen point win over the ranked Chiefs. It was the first home win over Kickapoo in five years and also the first Glendale JV win over Kickapoo in five years.
1.24.2017 - Glendale 118 - Hillcrest 115 - 233 combined points scored with five players scoring at least 20 points!
12.28.1977 - Glendale 63 - Blue Springs 62 - The tumultuous '77-'78 season saw Glendale's Hall of Fame coach Jack Roberts laid up with a broken hip and arm after a fall, but the Falcons advanced to the state quarterfinals for the first time ever. One highlight from that season was this Holiday Tournament victory over future Mizzou and NBA star Jon Sundvold and his Blue Springs Wildcats. Glendale baseball and basketball all-stater Mark Bailey, a future MLB catcher, put in a rebound shot with :2 seconds left to win the game for the Falcons! The team dedicated the game to Coach Roberts, who had fallen just two days before while trying to hang a banner for the tournament.
11.29.1963 - Glendale 66 - Ft. Smith, AR Northside 63 (OT) - Why not end with the first ever win at Falcon Court? A lot of firsts with this one; first ever game & win in program history, first home game and first home win in program history, first overtime game & win in program history, first game & win over on out-of-state team, etc., etc.
