The Lady Panthers hosted the East Henderson Eagles Tuesday night. The crowd that filled the gym was decked out in purple for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and to participate in Tom Raby Night. Each Franklin team put on a good show for the crowd, with the women's varsity team giving the most impressive showing by demolishing the Eagles, 72-58.
The men's varsity team also added a win to their season record. Though they held the lead for most of the game, East Henderson was able to close the gap as the fourth quarter came to a close. A technical foul put the Eagles in a position to close the gap, but only one point resulted from the foul and Franklin was able to walk away with the win, 54-53.
