FHS Sports: Boys Basketball tops Wachusett to advance in playoffs

The Franklin High School boys basketball team won a close game on Thursday to advance to the D1 Central semifinals on Sunday. Ryan Lanigan, Editor in Chief of Hockomock Sports reports on the game by writing:
Josh Macchi only scored two points on Thursday night, but they couldn't have come at a better time.

With Franklin up 36-33 and just over a minute to play, Macchi tried to go up and under. It missed, but Marcus Giese got just enough to tip the offensive rebound right back to Macchi and he laid it in with a defender draped all over him. 
The Panthers never looked back, taking down Wachusett 44-35 to advance to the D1 Central Semifinals. 
The Panthers now return to WPI to take on St. John’s Shrewsbury in the D1 Central Semifinals. The game is a rematch of last year’s D1 Central final. The two teams played once this season with SJS take a 66-59 win. The game is scheduled for Sunday at WPI at 1:00.
