FCHS SPOILS GREENWOOD HOMECOMING
On a perfect autumn Friday evening under colorful skies, the Franklin Grizzly Cubs won a close one at the homecoming of local Mid-State rival Greenwood, 23-21. The game featured five lead changes and nine turnovers. Franklin took the lead at the end of the third quarter and then survived a wild finish for the win. It was Franklin's first win since the second game of the season, and it sets up a rematch in the sectional opener on Oct. 24.
FRANKLIN COLLEGE DEMOLISHES BLUFFTON
The Grizzlies celebrated their homecoming by trouncing Bluffton, 63-3. Two sky-diving specialists descended and landed at midfield just before the start of the game, and then with the first kick Franklin took off and never looked back. Franklin was nearly perfectly balanced, with 488 total offensive yards, 246 rushing and 242 yards passing. The Grizzlies scored at least 2 touchdowns in every quarter.
Franklin travels to Anderson next week to face the Ravens, who surprised Mt. St. Joseph on Saturday, 10-9.
