FHS volleyball, golf, girls soccer, and girls & boys cross country teams post wins on Tuesday

Via Twitter and our subscription to, we share the results of the fall sports competition for Franklin High School on Tuesday, Sep 26, 2023.

Boys Soccer = North Attleboro, 1 @ Franklin, 1  – Final
– It seemed as though Franklin found the winner after scoring with just under 10 minutes to go but the Rocketeers found some more late game magic to equalize with less than a minute to play and grab a key point on the road. The game stayed scoreless for over 70 minutes but the Panthers finally broke through in the 71st minute. Senior Gustavo Martinez bounced a through ball between a pair of North defenders and classmate Gianni Pazvakavambwa latched onto it and snuck a low shot past the keeper to make it 1-0. On a drop ball at midfield, North senior Ethan Almeida played junior Patrick Etienvre short, and he launched a ball to the top of the area. Kaden Burns beat the keeper to the ball and looped a header into the open net to tie the game with under 30 seconds to play.

Girls Soccer = Franklin, 1 @ North Attleboro, 0 – Final
 - Despite an excellent performance from North sophomore keeper Riley Buckley in her varsity debut, Franklin was able to score the game’s lone goal and take home the victory. Junior midfielder Ava Villella was the hero for the Panthers, scoring off a corner for her first varsity goal. The win keeps Franklin one game back of KP in the division standings.
Very hard fought 1-0 win against N. Attleboro‼️G2 to Ava V for her first varsity goal and the only goal‼️ Big next game vs. Canton @ HOME 4:00

Volleyball = Franklin, 3 vs. Lincoln-Sudbury, 0 – Final
– Franklin made it seven straight sweeps to start the season, this time taking down Lincoln-Sudbury, 3-0 (25-18, 25-19, 25-21). Sasha Tracey (16 assists) and Brooke Daniels (14 assists) set the offense in motion for the Panthers, who got 18 digs, 13 kills, and a pair of aces from Taylor Lacerda and 12 kills and 17 digs from Makayla Kuykendall. Jen Soohoo and Grace Lacerda each chipped in with five kills apiece.
