The Franklin HS football team was humbled on their home field Friday night, 47-14, by local rival Shelbyville. It was the first loss for the Grizzly Cubs. Shelbyville, a top-ten ranked team in class 4A, is undefeated and has scored in the 40's in each of its games. They may be good, but Franklin sealed their own doom with multiple turnovers in the first half. The Golden Bears kept getting the ball deep in Franklin territory through Grizzly Cub giveaways, leading to relatively easy scores and sealing the deal long before the first half was over.
Next week Coach McClure's Franklin squad hopes to bounce back against tough conference foe, Mooresville.
