There was little that Franklin coach Lou Verrochi could say after the game. His team had gone from leading at halftime to losing by eight goals at home against a potential tournament opponent.
“We imploded,” he said. “The third quarter, they just came out like gangbusters and we didn’t match their intensity and it hurt us. We just didn’t rise to the occasion the way that I thought we would.”
Franklin held a 5-4 lead heading into the break, but BC High outscored the Panthers 10-1 in the second half to pull away for a comfortable 14-6 victory. Senior Jack Vail and freshman Eric Civetti each scored a pair of goals, but it was not enough for the Panthers.
Verrochi explained, “I thought we had a good first half and we told them what we had to do on the slides because that skip pass in the crease was killing us. We made those adjustments, but we just didn’t do the job today.”
