FHS Baseball, tennis, and softball teams top Oliver Ames

From Hockomock Sports we share the results of the spring sports action on Monday, April 10. The boys lacrosse lost in a close match to BC High while the baseball, softball, and both tennis teams beat their counterparts from Oliver Ames High School.

"In a battle between two Massachusetts lacrosse heavyweights on Monday afternoon at Beaver Street Field, BC High pulled out a hard-fought 8-7 win over Franklin. 
BC High dominated the first quarter and and halfway into the second period. After Charlie Pyne opened up the scoring with 9:55 left in the first quarter, BC High jumped out to a 4-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. 
That lead grew to 6-0 with 8:41 to go in the second quarter after a goal from Pat Jennings. BC High also got two goals out of both Pyne and Pat Bulger early on, who paced the Eagles along with goalie Peter DeSisto (ten saves). 
“We did a good job when we had some transition opportunities, capitalizing when we can, which is something we try to work on in all parts of the game, but it was working for us early in the half and it let us get a lead on them that we were lucky to have,” said BC High coach Steve Lydon about the Eagles’ hot start."
