Jared Keene provides the game write up at the Milford Daily News
"It had been eight days since the Franklin girls basketball team played its regular season finale.
The Panthers won that game – barely – over Bishop Guertin to take an unbeaten record into the postseason. But any thoughts that top-seeded Franklin might look sluggish when it hosted No. 8 Framingham on Friday night were quickly abolished.
Franklin won every quarter and got a trademark game from senior captain Ali Brigham, who made school history in the process, on its way to a convincing 85-37 Division 1 Central quarterfinal victory over the Flyers.
With the win, Franklin (21-0) moves on to meet No. 4 Holy Name – a team it beat twice this season, albeit by just five and nine points – in the semifinals on Tuesday at WPI at 7:45 p.m. Framingham finished up its season 10-11."
