Girls Lacrosse = Franklin, 10 @ Medfield, 5 – Final

"Franklin did not follow the standard script on Monday night at Medfield High. Typically, girls’ lacrosse games are won by the team that has the ball the most. Coaches always preach winning draw controls and keeping possession, but the Panthers used a different formula to beat the Warriors. 
Despite winning only 4-of-17 draws and spending long stretches of the game in the defensive zone, Franklin pulled out a 10-5 non-league victory over the perennial Div. 2 contender by hitting the Warriors with a series of quick counterattacks. 
Sophomore Annie Walsh and freshman Kelsey MacCallum each scored hat tricks and junior Jordan Jette scored a pair of goals, as Franklin broke open the game with a 7-3 second half."
