Roller coaster ride

It has been a strange season for the Lions of Franklin and the roller coaster ride continued for them this week as they went 1-1 on the week, fell out of tie for 2nd place and into 3rd alone and then back into a tie for 2nd.

This season in district the Lions have been tied for 1st, in 2nd place alone, tied for third, tied for second with two other teams, and tied for 2nd with only one. They even found themselves in 3rd and needing help to get back to second place. They own the tie breaker with 2nd place Cameron but they need the Yoemen to lose a game to force a tie for second place. They also need to win out to stay ahead of fourth place Hearne who are looking to earn a playoff spot. One thing for certain these Lions are resilient and they always seem to play well when backed into a corner.
