Knights Drop Regular Season Finale 35-12 To Conneaut

October 22, 2016

Five interceptions and a fumble led to defeat for the Franklin Knights in their regular season finale, a 35-12 home loss to the Conneaut Eagles.

The playoff-bound Knights (4-5; 2-4 in Region 5) lost for the fifth time in six games following a 3-0 start to their season.  CASH earns the number-3 seed from Region 5 for next week’s District 10, Class 5A quarterfinals, and Franklin will be the region’s number-4 seed.

Conneaut’s Isaiah Gillette rushed for 229 yards and two touchdowns, while teammate Nick Lindsey returned the game’s opening kickoff 78 yards for a score.  Quarterback Connor Mattera scored on a one-yard keeper, and threw an 18-yard TD pass to Kyle Sheets.

For the second straight week, both of Franklin’s scores came in the fourth quarter with Ian Haynes tossing touchdown passes to Brendon Gordon and Eric Hoffman.

Next weekend, at a date, time and location to be determined, Franklin will meet Fort LeBoeuf, from Region 6 in the district quarterfinals.  The Bison (7-2; 4-2 in Region 6) are the third place team from their region, but are the top seed from among the league’s 5A teams.
