The Franklin Quakers ended their season with a 4-3 record (3-3, Metro) after their comeback against Ingraham last Friday night fell short.
Trailing 15-0 at halftime, the Quakers scored 14 unanswered points in the second half but it wasn’t enough.
According to head football coach Terry Green, the team just had too many mental mistakes, and couldn’t get the ball back at the end of the game.
Despite the loss, Franklin has had their most successful football season in years, and the program appears to be headed in the right direction.
Franklin quarterback Lyndon Vaivao completed 7 of 10 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown, and Carmonte Banks led the Quakers with three catches for 71 yards and a touchdown. Banks also recorded eight tackles and a sack on defense. The Quakers’ Dave Pugh finished the game with seven tackles and one touchdown, while running back James “Duke” Scott, Jr. finished the game with 77 total yards.
