I have to add this was a TOTAL team victory… need to mention our Defense was stellar tonight in keeping Needham out of our circle!! The defensive unit of Ella G, Sophia C, Brooke T, & Lindsay D deserves a BIG SHOUT OUT!! Way to go ladies!!"

Round of 8: Franklin (#5) plays at Wachusett (#4) on Veteran Day at 11 AM

** Volleyball = Division 1 = #13 Acton-Boxboro, 1 @ #4 Franklin, 3 – Final
Ryan Lanigan, founder and Editor-in-Chief of, provides the game recap:
"When Franklin earned the final point of the match to seal a win, their traditional jubilation was replaced by a sigh of relief.

The Panthers were three points away from completing a sweep of #13 Acton-Boxborough before the visitors rattled off a late run and prolonged the match with a win in the third set.

Franklin played its best volleyball in the fourth set to create its lone double-digit lead of the match. And once again, just three points away from victory, the Revolution came charging back. Acton-Boxborough used an 8-2 run, fighting off five straight match points to get within three points. But a handling error gave Franklin the final point and the Panthers closed out a 3-1 (25-22, 25-19, 24-26, 25-21) win in a Division 1 Round of 16 matchup.

“I think across the board, we could have done better at pretty much everything,” said Franklin head coach Samantha Redmond. ”I think we all felt it, I think we’re all aware of the fact that we could have done better. At this point in the year, we should do better.”

Round of 8 game vs. Barnstable (date/time TBD)
