Via HockomockSports and Twitter we share the results of the FHS sports action on Friday, Jan 12, 2018 

Girls Basketball = Franklin, 49 @ Holy Name, 42 – Final

Boys Swimming = Franklin, 91 @ Mansfield, 74 – Final

Girls Swimming = Franklin, 93 @ Mansfield, 72 – Final

Boys Basketball = Mansfield, 52 @ Franklin, 67 – Final
Ryan Lanigan, founder and Editor-in-Chief of, provides the game recap:

"Having three legitimate offensive options has made Franklin one of the top teams in the area. But its now safe to say senior Matt Elias gives the Panthers a fourth. 
Senior Paul Mahon, junior Jalen Samuels and sophomore Chris Edgehill have been reliable options for the Panthers over the past year and a half, but Elias has elevated his game this season. 
The senior sharpshooter scored a career-high 17 points, connecting on four three-pointers to lead the Panthers to a key 67-52 win over Mansfield, putting the teams into a first-place tie in the Kelley-Rex. It also marked Franklin’s first win in its current gym, which opened in 2014. 
“Elias had a huge game,” said Franklin head coach CJ Neely. “He’s a silent assassin. When he’s playing well, we’re playing well. You go right down the line, we have guys that can play but he’s really stepped up for us all season long, he’s had big shot after big shot. He’s shooting with a lot of confidence, he’s playing with a lot of confidence and that’s what we’re going to need if we’re going to win games like tonight.”
