The Franklin Panthers continue to thrash opponents. Last Friday they travelled to Brevard to take on the 2-2 Blue Devils. The Blue Devils were coming off two big wins against Cherokee and Mitchell of large deficits and looked to continue to the trend against the home team, Franklin. It didn't quite go as planned, however.

The first quarter remained scoreless, but that changed in the second when Brevard took an early lead with the first touchdown of the game. Shortly after, Jeremiah Young of Franklin matched the score with a touchdown of his own. In the third quarter, Franklin scored two more, putting the minds of FHS fans at ease. In the fourth they put up two more touchdowns. Brevard made a final push, adding seven more to their total, but in the end it was Franklin who took home the win, 33-14.

The varsity soccer team has had a good season so far, starting with a 6-0 record before being handed their first loss by Smoky Mountain last month. Since then the Panthers have gone 1-2 with losses coming from East and West Henderson. On Monday, the team traveled to Tuscola to take on the Mountaineers with hopes of returning to their winning ways.

They were able to do just that when they took home the win with a score of 4-2. They jumped out to an early lead of 3-0 in the first period and posted one more in the second with Tuscola scoring two of their own. Riggy Hernandez and Jeremy Jordan each scored a goal apiece while Arturo Lopez scored two. Goalie Luis Jimenez had 14 saves in the game. Lopez was named Player of the Game.

Yesterday, the Panthers hosted the Brevard Blue Devils and Monday they will hit the road again to take on the Pisgah Bears who they beat at home, 9-0, in September.

DOVER, Del. - Jimmie Johnson's run toward a possible sixth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship shifted into high gear Sunday at Dover International Speedway.

On two fresh tires to polesitter Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s four, Johnson held off his Hendrick Motorsports teammate during a 26- lap green-flag run to the finish of the AAA 400 and made a significant dent in the series lead of Matt Kenseth, who finished seventh.

Johnson picked up his fifth victory of the season, his record eighth at the Monster Mile — breaking a tie with Richard Petty and Bobby Allison — and the 65th of his career. The driver of the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet vaulted over fifthplace finisher Kyle Busch into second in the Chase standings, eight points behind Kenseth.
