#10 Franklin, 1 @ #7 Bridgewater-Raynham, 0 – Final
– Alex Sullivan scored in the third minute for the Panthers. Franklin advances to the D1 South quarterfinal to face Walpole at 2:00 on Sunday.
Joe Clark, HockomockSports.com Student Reporter provides the detailed write up for this game:
"The old adage “practice makes perfect” is one that certainly held true for the Franklin girl’s field hockey team on Friday. The Panthers scored early and never looked back on their way to a 1-0 win over Bridgewater-Raynham in First Round of the MIAA D1 South tournament
Franklin, who haven’t played a lot on grass fields this season, spent this week practicing on the surface to prepare for the game, and it showed. Just three minutes into the game, senior midfielder Alex Sullivan got the rebound following a save from B-R goalie Hailey Colon and put the ball in the back of the net to put Franklin up 1-0.
“We practiced on grass all week and we practiced going hard to the ball and beating them to the ball and that’s what we did, got the jump on them and popped one in early, so it felt good to have that lead,” said Franklin head coach Lisa Cropper on the quick start."
