The Franklin Panthers varsity football team escaped with a narrow victory last Friday night, taking down the neighboring Maroon Devils of Swain County 14-6. Jacob Young scored the Panthers only two touchdowns of the game in what was a physically grinding contest between the two rivals. The win gives the Panthers their sixth straight victory over the 1A powerhouse, in a series historically dominated by Swain.

“Swain was a good challenge for us, on both sides of the ball. They play as hard as anyone, so we were not surprised about their ability to hang around,” said Panthers Head Coach Josh Brooks. “We just knew we had to keep playing, and it was a good struggle at the line of scrimmage. But eventually we we were able to take control.”
