FHS football looking to continue undefeated season.


Franklin High School varsity soccer team closed out its historical season on Tuesday night when they travelled to Newton, N.C., to take on the Newton Conover Red Devils in the fourth round of the state playoffs, the match that would determine whether the Panthers would vie for the State Championship.

It was obvious from the start that the 24-1 Red Devils and the 21- 1 Panthers were evenly matched. Franklin finished out the first half looking as though they were taking control of the match, though the score was still even at 0-0.



The FHS soccer team suffered it's first loss of the season last Wednesday when they took on the East Henderson Eagles, ending a 15 game winning streak.

The loss didn't hinder the team too much though, they were able to bounce back on Monday with another dominant 9-1 win over the West Henderson Falcons.

Yesterday the team traveled to Tuscola to take on the Mountaineers who they beat earlier in the season, 7-2.


Talladega, Ala. - In a must-win situation at Talladega Superspeedway, Brad Keselowski did exactly that, preserving his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship hopes with a victory in Sunday’s GEICO 500.

With the right side of his car damaged in the wreck that brought out the first caution flag of the afternoon, Keselowski persevered, taking the lead during the first attempt at a green-white-checkered- flag finish and winning the race in the second overtime— after a wreck that ended the title run of Keselowski’s former boss, Dale Earnhardt Jr.

“I can’t believe it,” Keselowski said in Victory Lane. “Talladega is such a wild card, and to be able to win here you have to catch breaks and make your own breaks – a little of both.

“I can’t believe we won at Talladega. This race is the scariest of the three in the (Contender Round) bracket. To be able to win here is really a privilege. It really is.”



The FHS varsity football team continued to run through the 2A/3A WNCAC last Friday night when the Panthers continued their undefeated streak. Rival, the Smoky Mountain Mustangs entered the contest with one win on their record for the season.

After scoring on the kickoff, the Panthers made sure to put those hopes to rest when they jumped ahead 21-6 before the end of the first quarter. They added 14 in the second and seven more in the third to seal the win 42-6.
