Boys Basketball = Franklin, 72 @ King Philip, 59 – Final
For the remainder of the results around the Hockomck League on Friday
Student reporter Joe Clark provides the write up on the FHS boys game:
"Franklin got off to a strong start on Friday night and that momentum carried the Panthers to a 72-59 road win over King Philip.
The Warriors kept things close in the opening quarter, with Tom Madden cutting the deficit to four (11-7) but Franklin responded with a run to stretch its lead. The Panthers rattled off a 9-0 run that included a Connor Goldstein three pointer and four points from Paul Mahon, who had five of his 13 points in the first quarter. The run gave Franklin a 20-7 lead after eight minutes.
With Franklin big man Connor Peterson (18 points, five rebounds) on the bench to start the second quarter due to foul trouble, KP quickly put four points on the board, but Franklin quickly answered back with four of their own. A huge quarter from Josh Macchi, who scored 10 of his 13 points in the second period, had Franklin up 36-25 heading into the second half. The key in the first half for Franklin was the production from the bigs in Macchi and Peterson (seven first quarter points)."
