Franklin vs Brentwood

Recommended Posts

Not much detail as I had to leave at half. First half was pretty even back and forth with Franklin getting a few more shots than Brentwood but no goals. Kids that stayed the whole game tell me Franklin was awarded a late PK for foul in the box.

 

These games lose a little of the intensity when you see each other during regular season, then district finals and then region finals knowing both will advance. Mainly playing for bragging rights and home field advantage in Sectionals. Even Sectionals loose a little interest this year as Beech and Hendersonville have not been very competitive to upper District 11 teams. Hendersonville appears to be doing better than early season. I expect Brentwood and Franklin will take care of business at hand in Sectional matches.

I agree with RaptorFan. The game was back and forth during the 2nd half as well and very physical with numerous fouls being called all over the field. Brentwood had a couple of good scoring opportunites that were turned away, as did Franklin. The goal did come on a PK as a Franklin forward was tackled inside of the 6 with 1:04 to go in the game. I do disagree with RaptorFan regarding the meaning of this game. This is a very intense rivalary that neither team wants to lose. The game was very physical and the intensity was quite high. Both teams were exhausted at the end. The mid state, especially district 11 will be well represented by these two teams next week, it they take care of business on Saturday. Either one could win the title, especially with what is happening on the east and west sides of the state.

Thanks for the information on the game. I have to say that I'll agree with soccerfan in that this rivalry is too intense for this game to be meaningless. I don't believe that there is a player on either team that is okay with losing this game even though this was not a "do or die" game!
