Ryan Lanigan, founder and Editor-in-Chief of HockomockSports.com, provides the game recap of the FHS football match vs. Springfield Central in the D1 Final Four on Saturday at Shrewsbury High School.
"Springfield Central’s offense delivered punch after punch all throughout its D1 State Semifinal clash with Franklin.
The Panthers kept getting back up.
The Golden Eagles and its high-flying offense came as advertised, scoring eight touchdowns with over 500 yards of total offense. Central scored on five straight drives in the first half and then three straight in the second half. A lot of teams would have folded, at least at some point.
But not this Franklin team. Not these Panthers.
The top-seeded Panthers had four first half touchdowns of their own and three more in the second, cutting the deficit to just three at 44-41 in the fourth quarter."
