Franklin County and William Fleming met for the second time this season. Tonight's game was the one that counted in the Western Valley District standings. The Eagles had lost two straight, but Fleming had bigger issues, dropping 17 in a row over the last three seasons.
Lee Johnson's team looking for a little momentum to start district play. They wouldn't get it. Franklin County's Kyle Ellis going to the air and finds EJ Harris on the 31 yard touchdown to get the Eagles on the board at 7-nothing in the first quarter.
It was 13-zip when Jonathan Altice and company were looking for more. But Altice fumbles and Trevor Mike is there to scoop it up. He's headed the other way, slicing and dicing on the nice return. He gets it all the way back across midfield for the Colonels and that led to a Fleming field goal.
But Franklin County too tough. The next play looked familiar. Ellis to Harris again for another TD. Franklin County led it 21 to 3 and cruised past William Fleming 35 to 16.
