The Lady Panthers hosted their second home game on Tuesday night when the North Henderson Knights came to the Panther Den. Franklin entered the contest with a 4-1 record, while the Knights had a 7-3 record and were largely considered to be the next best team behind Franklin and the Pisgah Sugar Bears in the conference.

The team had a 22-5 record and went deep into the state playoffs just last year and was expected to be fairly dominant this season after losing only one player from last year's team.
