FHS boys hockey post win vs. KP, wrestling team goes 2-1 in quad meet on Saturday

Via and Twitter, we share the results of the FHS winter sports action on Saturday:

Girls Hockey = Franklin, 1 vs. Norwood, 4 – Final 
– Norwood scored three unanswered goals to earn the non-league win over Franklin. The Mustangs took the lead late in the first period, but Julia Flynn tied the game with 3:49 left in the second. She stole the puck at the blue line, deked the goalie to open space on the forehand, and stuffed her shot into the bottom corner to make it 1-1. Norwood answered back inside the final minute of the period. Freshman goalie Izzy Brown stopped a breakaway and made another great save to keep the Mustangs out, but the rebound couldn’t be cleared and Norwood tapped it in to go back in front. Norwood added a third three minutes into the third and sealed the win with an empty net goal. Brown finished with 29 saves in the loss.

Solid day at Tewksbury High going 2-1. Tough loss against Shawsheen tech 45-33. Good win against Melrose 42-39. Great win against Tewksbury 42-36. Pins by Carlucci (3), Winkier (1), O’Leary(2), Fracassa 3), Owen(1), Foley(2), Granata(1), Parlon(3) and Sheridan(3).

Boys Hockey = King Philip, 3 @ Franklin, 5 – Final 
Josh Perry, Managing Editor of, provides the game recap:
Last season, Franklin and King Philip shared the Kelley-Rex division crown. On Saturday night, at a packed Pirelli Veterans Arena, the teams met again for a showdown between the top two teams in the division standings. Feeding off the home crowd, Franklin came out firing on all cylinders and that fast start proved decisive.

The Panthers dominated the opening period, taking advantage of their team speed to put the Warriors on their heels. Franklin scored four times in the first 15 minutes, digging a deep hole that the Warriors were unable to climb out of and skating away with a 5-3 win that puts them three points up on KP.

“We try to put them on their heels first,” said Franklin coach Anthony Sarno. “We want to come out with that nice hard fore-check, take away both D, take away options up the wall and seal off the middle. We’ve got four lines of speed and when they put it together and use their speed and work the system, then we usually come out and get a goal in the first period.”
