In a Delta League finale, Franklin shut out Pleasant Grove 42-0 in what turned out to be the “Lamar Jackson Show” for the star Franklin Quarterback who ran for four TD’s, passed for another, and even ran for a two-point conversion.
Franklin’s victory moves it up in the strong Delta League and improves its hopes for the playoffs. Franklin’s 4-3 league record ties with Pleasant Grove, but with the Wildcats victory over the Eagles, in a head to head decision, Franklin would likely get the call for the playoffs if only three will advance. Elk Grove is in 1st at 7-0, and Grant in 2nd at 6-1 with only the one loss to Elk Grove.
