Field Hockey - D1 South#4 Franklin, 3 vs. #5 Dennis-Yarmouth, 1 – Final
– Caroline Lounsbury scored off a rebound with 59 seconds left in the first half to give the Panthers a boost going into the halftime break. Franklin carried that momentum into the second half as Diana Griffin doubled the lead just 30 seconds into the second frame.
Head coach Lisa Cropper said freshman Annie Walsh scored a “beautiful top shelf” goal off a “sweet” pass from classmate Cassi Ronan to make it 3-0. Sam Jones made six saves, including two “incredibly athletic” diving saves with three minutes left to keep the lead.

Girls Soccer - D1 South#11 North Attleboro, 1 @ #3 Franklin, 0 – Final
Hana Caster was the only player to score a goal against the Franklin defense during the regular season. On Sunday afternoon at Pisini Field, Caster also became the only player to score against the Panthers in the postseason and in the process knocked Franklin out of the tournament in the Div. 1 South quarterfinal.
Caster scored just nine minutes into the game to give North Attleboro a lead that it would never relinquish. The 1-0 victory advances the Rocketeers into the semifinal and ends Franklin’s streak of sectional final appearance at three (and four of the last five).
If there were any nerves going against the league champions, North Attleboro certainly hid them well. The Rocketeers, coming off a 3-2 win against Davenport champion Oliver Ames, started well with pressure in the midfield and quick transitions to the front two of Haley Guertin and Caster.
