Franklin volleyball triumphed over Canton with a tight 3-1 (13-25, 25-23, 31-29, 25-23) victory to claim the Hockomock classic last Thursday, October 28th.

Despite a rough start the panthers managed to have one of the closest games of the season so far. “It really came down to who wanted it more” senior Libero Urquhart said “We were down badly but we came back and we really pushed.”

Franklin Volleyball has not seen a Hock since 2007 but the crowd’s excitement could of fooled anyone as the cheers could be heard throughout the school.

“I can’t wait to see our name on the banner” senior outside hitter and Captain Alicia Wilde exclaims “It’s going to be awesome”.

When asked how Canton would take home the loss, one canton player smirked“I’m looking forward to next year’s match-up”.
