Grizzly Cubs' Season Ends
It was a disappointing end to the Franklin HS football season Friday night, as the Grizzly Cubs lost their rematch with Greenwood in the first round of the sectional tournament, 9-7. Once again the offense failed to cash in on their opportunities, while the defense held the opponent to three field goals. The effort was there, the game was close, but in the end, our kids came up short. We're awfully proud of them for keeping their heads up and working hard all season. (Photo from The Daily Journal)
Franklin Hangs On to Win
The Franklin College Grizzlies traveled to perennial rival Mt. St. Joseph on Saturday and surged to a 26-0 lead in the second quarter, and a win seemed secure. However, the Lions stormed back in the second half and FC had to hang on for a 40-35 victory. QB Chad Rupp became FC's all-time leader in touchdown passes, throwing the 79th, 80th and 81st TDs of his career.
