Hockomock League Lacrosse: FHS Players to Watch for 2021

HockomockSports.com has published the lacrosse players to watch for the Hockomock League for the Spring 2021 season. The FHS student athletes are shared here. The link to the complete league girls and boys lacrosse listings are provided below. 


After two seasons as a standout for the field hockey team, Carney will finally get the chance to show off her skills for the Panthers on the lacrosse field. Coming into a dominant program and an already loaded roster, Carney will bring an aggressive mindset and a physical presence to the Franklin midfield. Already drawing national attention for her club play, Carney gets the chance to showcase those skills for Franklin this spring and continue the program’s dominance in the Hockomock, as it looks to bring home another Kelley-Rex title and keep its long unbeaten run intact.


Between injuries and then a pandemic, Jones has yet to really have a chance to show what she is capable of in the Franklin attack. She has made several appearances, including a four-goal performance against Concord-Carlisle in the 2018 Div. 1 East final as a freshman, but the UConn-commit will be hoping her senior season can be her best. With the size, athleticism, and ability to find open spaces in the defense, Jones is a weapon around the cage that the Panthers will look to exploit. Surrounded by playmakers, Jones should have plenty of scoring chances this spring to try and keep Franklin’s remarkable unbeaten run in the league going for another season and retain the Kelley-Rex title.


The Panthers are definitely a program that reloads rather than rebuilds and it seems like each spring there are new underclassmen ready to step in and become stars. Davis looks to be the next attacker to continue that tradition. Davis has made an immediate impact. In his debut, he scored six goals and showed off the combination of quickness, stick skills, shot strength and accuracy, and willingness to combine with his fellow attackers that made his brother Jake a standout too. Franklin enters every season with the expectation of being the top team in the Kelley-Rex division and bringing in new faces like Davis every season makes it easier to meet those lofty goals.


Two years ago, Lazzaro broke out as one of the league’s top scorers, racking up more than 100 points and helping Franklin to another league title. He was named a first-team All-American after scoring 59 goals and dishing out 48 assists, more than tripling his 30 points as a freshman. The Penn State commit showed that he had the lethal combo of being able to score at will but also be unselfish and find openings for his teammates. He also had big games against the best opponents, including a six-goal, three-assist performance against defending state champ BC High. This spring, Lazzaro will be the focal point of the Panthers’ attack and looks ready to put up even bigger numbers for the Kelley-Rex favorites.
