Lightning ends Franklin JV season

CHARLES CITY—Franklin High School’s junior varsity football season came to an end with 2:28 left in the first quarter during Thursday’s game.

That’s when the game was called due to lightning with Franklin leading 14-0.

Bronco Coach Travis Councill doesn’t expect the game to be made up.

“It was an unfortunate way to end the season,” Councill said. “It is what it is.”

The Broncos were 2-1 for the season and played two incomplete games due to weather.

Highlights from Thursday included freshman Tyree Jones scoring on a 60-yard run and freshman J’Corey Williams returning an interception 65-yards for a touchdown.

“We had a lot of first-year players this year,” Councill said. “We will be very good next year. I’m very proud of my boys and their growth and improvement they made throughout the year. Now it’s time to focus on schoolwork and making good grades and getting in the weight room for next year.”
