Lions devour goats
The Franklin Lions survived the disadvantage of being the district champion playing the underdog 4th place team Groesbeck Goats on the Goats’ home field.
In a quirk of the playoff system, the Lions lost a flip for home and home and ended up in the Goats backyard almost to their detriment but they managed to hold on early and pull away late for a hard fought 63-49 victory.
The win allows the Lions to advance to round two of the playoffs against the LaMarque Cougars 42-20 winners over Coldsprings.
