In a battle of division leaders, it was the visiting Canton Bulldogs that jumped out to a big lead in the first set and went on to grind out wins in the next two for a sweep over Franklin, 3-0. 
“We got a good start, a really fast start, which is something we’ve really been working on,” Canton head coach Pat Cawley said. “We did very well with that. It’s the game of volleyball, one team comes out flat and one team doesn’t but we knew the match wasn’t over. We did not feel like we were in the drivers seat, we knew they would come back. And the second two sets proved that, it was pretty even the rest of the way.” 
Within a matter of minutes, Canton found themselves with a 10-1 lead on the Panthers and never looked back in the first set. A block kill from senior Elizabeth Hamilton made it 13-3 and then a kill from Emma Murphy just a few plays later made it 18-4, forcing Franklin to take its second timeout. The Panthers didn’t help themselves out in the first set with 16 unforced errors however, Canton did its part by being nearly perfect while serving. The Bulldogs made just one error while serving, which helped create their big lead.
