Field Hockey = King Philip, 0 @ Franklin, 2 – Final 
– After a scoreless first half, Franklin finally broke through a stingy King Philip defense just over a minute into the second half and added a late insurance goal to get the win. The Panthers clinched the Kelley-Rex division title outright with the victory at home. Freshman Raena Campbell scored an unassisted goal 68 seconds into the third quarter while freshman Haley Wernig doubled the lead with less than five minutes to play in the fourth quarter. Sophia Cuneo, Emily Carney, Kaeley Dubriske all played well for the Panthers. KP sophomore Kelly Holmes had an outstanding game, nearly scoring on a pair of occasions. Seniors Margo Riley, Haley Izydorczak, and Lily Brown also played well for the Warriors while junior Haley Bright recorded 10 saves.

"The state tournament doesn’t start for another week or so, but fans were treated to a preview of what’s to come on Thursday evening. 
Franklin overcome a 2-1 deficit to take down previously undefeated King Philip in a five-set thriller, 3-2 (25-22, 17-25, 15-25, 26-24, 15-11), in a clash of the Hockomock League’s two best teams, and two squads that are poised for deep runs in the postseason. 
With the win, Franklin claims a share of the Kelley-Rex division title along with the Warriors. It marks the third straight season the two teams have shared the division crown. At least one of the two programs has won the division each year dating back to the 2013 season."
