    Game of the Week

    Franklin boys at Taunton, Tuesday: Senior captain Sam Bohmiller and junior Chris Rodgers helped spark the Panthers to seven wins in their first eight games in January, improving their record to 8-4. The Tigers (10-1) present one of the toughest challenges in the state, but will serve as a good test for Franklin to gauge progress before heading into the regular season’s final stretch.
