HockomockSports.com: "King Philip Pitches Shutout At Fenway To Beat Franklin" (video)

Ryan Lanigan, founder and Editor-in-Chief of HockomockSports.com, provides the game recap for the annual FHS vs. KP Thanksgiving game at Fenway Park on Tuesday, Nov 21, 2023.

"Before King Philip took its third trip in as many seasons to Gillette Stadium next week, the Warriors had some unfinished business to take care of at Fenway Park. 
King Philip snapped a brief two-game losing skid to Thanksgiving Day rival Franklin with an emphatic 35-0 win, clinching the Hockomock League Kelley-Rex division title outright, the program’s first league crown since 2017.

The Warriors entered each of the past two seasons with a chance at the league title on Thanksgiving but the Panthers won both in games that came down to the wire. KP clinched at least a share of this year’s title at the end of October with a win over North but made sure they wouldn’t be sharing the banner with anyone else by winning on Tuesday night.

“It was huge,” said King Philip head coach Brian Lee, who earned his 150th career victory, of winning the Hock title. “I was talking to a couple of coaches, and they’re asking if we’re going to play everybody or not. Yeah, we’re playing everybody. We want the Hock. The Hock is a great league, coming out of the Hock always prepares you for the playoffs. If have an opportunity to go get that Hock title, that’s what you want to do. Get that first, now we can see what we can do next week.

Milford tops FHS football on Friday night

Via Twitter and our subscription to HockomockSports.com, we share the results of the fall sports competition for Franklin High School on Friday, Oct 27, 2023. 


Football = Franklin, 0 @ Milford, 24 – Final
1st Quarter: (M) Nick Araujo 41-yard rush, N. Araujo XP good.
2nd Quarter: (M) Jack Buckley 1-yard rush, N. Araujo XP good; (M) N. Araujo 39-yard field goal.
3rd Quarter: (M) N. Araujo 2-yard rush, N. Araujo XP good.
4th Quarter: No scoring.

Ryan Lanigan, founder and Editor-in-Chief of HockomockSports.com, provides the game recap: 
"Milford senior Nick Araujo wears a lot of hats for the playoff-bound Scarlet Hawks.

Friday night, he shouldered the load offensively by leading a dominant ground game and found the end zone twice to lead Milford to a 24-0 shutout win over Franklin.

Araujo rushed for 168 yards on 17 carries, almost entirely in the first half, and added a 39-yard field goal in the second quarter to account for nearly all of Milford’s scoring.

“I think we rebounded perfectly this game,” Araujo said as the Hawks bounced back from their first loss of the season. “We put up a massive goose egg going into the first round of the playoffs next week. We had a lot of dudes step up. We have a sophomore [Joey McGee] starting and he had a huge pick to turn things around for us in the third. I just want to do everything I can for my team, whatever puts a ‘W’ on the board.”

Via Twitter and our subscription to HockomockSports.com, we share the results of the fall sports competition for Franklin High School on Friday, Oct 13, 2023. 


Football = Franklin, 0 vs. Central Catholic, 28


Franklin, 2 @ King Philip, 0 – Final 
– A pair of second half goals handed Franklin a season sweep of rival King Philip. The Panthers pounced for two goals within a 10-minute span just after the midway point of the second half. Junior Garrett Scagliarini opened the scoring off of an assist from Bradley Herndon, and minutes later, Rex Cinelli got on the end of a corner kick from Noah Cain to double the advantage. “It was very, very well played game,” said Franklin head coach Fran Bositis. “Mike O’Neill has done a great job with King Philip, they played very well.”

King Philip, 1 @ Franklin, 3 – Final 
– Franklin rallied from a goal down, scoring three times in the final 25 minutes to secure a season split against the Warriors and move into a first-place tie atop the Kelley-Rex division. Anya Zub scored all three of Franklin’s goals, with KP coach Gary Pichel labeling all three “incredible.” Morgan Lovell, Kelly O’Connor, and Selene Hammad picked up the assists for the Panthers. Franklin coach Jodi Klein called it an “incredible team win.”

Field Hockey = Canton, 0 @ Franklin, 6 – Final 
– Franklin continued its long unbeaten run in league play with a comfortable win against Canton. Raena Crandall scored three goals and assisted on two other to power the Panthers attack. Haley Wernig added a pair of goals and an assist, while Emily Carney scored once and assisted on two. Shaelyn Murphy was huge in goal for the Bulldogs, making 18 saves in the loss. Carney got Franklin on the board first with a blast off a corner midway through the first quarter. With just about a second left in the first, Wernig got free on the right wing and played a cross to Crandall, who had her first tip saved but stuck with the rebound. Franklin added a third early in the second when Carney’s reverse shot was saved and Crandall again pounced on the rebound. In the fourth, Franklin had a nice interchange of passes to add another goal. Carney started it at the top of the circle, feeding Crandall right on the edge of the crease, and she hot Wernig crashing on the right post for the tap in. After a long spell of Canton pressure, Crandall turned on the jets to break away and run clean on goal. She rounded Murphy and finished into the empty net to complete her hat trick. With two minutes to go, Carney made her way to the end line on the left wing, crossing it through the crease to Wernig for her second of the day.

FHS football, volleyball & field hockey teams post wins on Thursday

Via Twitter and our subscription to HockomockSports.com, we share the results of the fall sports competition for Franklin High School on Thursday, Oct 5, 2023.


Football = Taunton,27 @ Franklin, 28 - Final 
1st Quarter: No scoring.
2nd Quarter: (F) Justin Bianchetto 15-yard pass to Derek Dubriske, Arnav Dhulipati XP good; (F) Andrew Fraulo 5-yard rush, A. Dhulipati XP good; (T) Ethan Harris 44-yard rush, Trinley Dudley XP good.

4th Quarter: (F) A. Fraulo 1-yard rush, A. Dhulipati XP good; (F) J. Bianchetto 4-yard pass to Kyle Walsh, A. Dhulipati XP good.

Ryan Lanigan, founder and Editor-in-Chief of HockomockSports.com, provides the game narrative:
"Just before Franklin’s offense took the field with just over two minutes to go and a six-point deficit on the scoreboard, junior kicker Arnav Dhulipati told classmate Kyle Walsh that if the Panthers finished the drive, he’d deliver the game-winning extra point. 
Walsh and the Franklin offense did their part in the form of a 12-play, 66-yard drive that culminated in a 4-yard touchdown catch from Walsh on a pass from junior Justin Bianchetto with just five seconds left to tie the game.

And Dhulipati did exactly what he said as he booted the point after attempt through the uprights to hand Franklin a thrilling 28-27 comeback on Thursday night.

Taunton nearly ended the game on a deflected pass right after the Panthers entered the red zone, but Franklin took advantage of its second chance. An 11-yard pass from Bianchetto (29-for-50, 279 yards, two touchdowns) to Derek Dubriske — who held on despite a thunderous hit — moved Franklin inside the 10-yard line. A quick pass to Owen Scarborough gained four more yards down to the 8-yard line and took three seconds off the clock."

HockomockSports.com: Game of the Week Preview: Taunton at Franklin


"Only through the first four weeks of the season, teams are already experiencing momentum swings. This week’s Game of the Week, presented by Notturno Plumbing and Heating, features two squads that have seen some ups and downs already as Franklin hosts Kelley-Rex division rival Taunton.

The host Panthers had two good wins to start the season, including a late defensive stop to hold off Brockton in Week 2 before suffering a big loss on the road to Duxbury. Franklin bounced back in a big way in its first Hock game of the season with an impressive win over North Attleboro.

“I really like that guys have stepped up when they’ve had it,” relayed Franklin head coach Eian Bain. “We’ve had different quarterbacks, different running backs, different guys on the line…and the same thing on the defense, some things we weren’t expecting. But things happen and guys step up, it’s nice to see the depth answer the call.

“It’s been a good team atmosphere, this is a very tight group. It can be easy to fall into the success of past teams or past players, but they are making this team and this season their own.”

The score stayed the same until the 61st minute. Selene Hammad found herself in a pocket of space 25 yards from goal. Katherine Powers saved Hammad’s shot but Anya Zub was alive to the rebound and tapped it in. Inside the final five minutes, Morgan Lovell picked the pass of the match, sending Kelly O’Connor through on goal. The Franklin forward calmly fired a shot past the keeper for a 2-1 lead. Shortly after, Olivia Costa’s touch opened up space on her left foot and she was able to fire in a goal that essentially sealed the win.

Wonderful World of Wine (WWW) - Episode 246 - Are You Ready For Some Football.....And Wine?

The Wonderful World of Wine (WWW) - Episode 246 - Exploring All Things Wine With You!

Are You Ready For Some Football.....And Wine?  In episode Kim and Mark talk football food and wine pairings.
Football food is often hearty and flavorful, making it a challenge to pair with wine. However, there are a few key principles to follow to create successful pairings we will discuss:
  • Match the intensity of the food with the intensity of the wine. 
  • Consider the acidity of the wine. 
  • Think about the complementary flavors of the food and wine. For example, the sweetness of Riesling can balance the heat of buffalo sauce, while the smoky notes of Tempranillo can complement the flavors of grilled meats.
Here are a few foods we will talk pairing wines with:
  • Buffalo wings
  • Nachos
  • Burgers
  • Chips and dips AND more!
With a little planning, you can elevate your football party/tailgating by pairing your favorite foods with the perfect wines.

Cheers and GO PATS!
