Via HockomockSports, we share the results of the FHS sports action on Thursday, June 6, 2019.

Boys Lacrosse = D1 South =#7 Natick, 2 @ #2 Franklin, 10 – Final
– The Panthers put on a defensive clinic, limiting the visitors to just two goals on 10 total shots to advance to the D1 South Semifinals. Franklin’s defensive unit of Pat Morrison, Liam Arsenault, and Spencer Briggs, along with close D Will Harvey and Luc Sweeney limited Natick from getting many good looks throughout the night. Franklin led 5-1 at halftime and held the visitors to just one goal through three quarters. Nitin Chaudhury had three goals and an assist, Matt Lazzaro scored twice with two helpers, Jake Davis netted a pair of goals with one assist, and Ben Kolb and Harvey each scored once. Jacob Alexander won 13-of-16 faceoffs while Will Davis made seven saves in net. The Panthers await the winner of #3 Xaverian and #6 Duxbury, which will be played on Friday at 5:00. Franklin will play the winner on Monday.

Girls Lacrosse = D1 East = #7 Hopkinton, 11 @ #2 Franklin, 19 – Final

Boys Tennis = D1 South = #9 Franklin, 0 @ #1 Brookline, 5 – Final

Softball = D1 South = #22 Wellesley, 0 @ #11 Franklin, 11 – Final
Joe Clark, Contributor, provides the softball game recap:

"In a preliminary round matchup in MIAA Division One South tournament the 11th-seeded Franklin softball team played a near-flawless game, shutting out #22 Wellesley with a convincing 11-0 win. 
After allowing a one-out single in the top of the first inning, Panther starter Jackie Cherry (4.1 IP, 1H, 5K) was lights out and didn’t allow another Raider hit while she was in the game. 
Meanwhile, Franklin wasted little time to get its offense in gear. In the bottom of the first, Anna Balkus reached on a bunt single and came home two batters later on an RBI triple by Sarah Jackson."
