It was a long night. Franklin Community came out of the gate with passion and energy, and took the lead early. Our Falcons settled in, but they were already a couple goals behind. At one point in the second half, our Falcons were down 4-1, a major deficit in the game of soccer. They had a choice to call it a game, lay back, and just count down until the whistle blew, or they could battle, they could go down swinging, and learn from this situation. That is exactly what they did. When the officiating and bounces didn’t go our way, our guys continued to battle through. We scored with 8 minutes left, then again with 6 minutes left getting the score within one. In the last 6 minutes, the FC keeper made a great finger tip save, and a couple of our final chances went wide. It was just one of those nights. Our boys have a big week next week with some tough competition, and there is no doubt that they will learn from this and be ready to go next week!
