Franklin remains undefeated in district 1-6A after routing Eastlake 46 – 22. The Cougars air attack was ironically too much for the Falcons in west El Paso.
Senior quarterback Cameron Byrd threw four touchdowns with 289 yards and found paydirt with an additional 2 rushing touchdowns.
Despite Eastlake’s 10 – 6 early lead in the 2nd quarter, the falcons would not find the endzone again until 10:51 in the 4th, after the cougars scored 34 unanswered points.
Franklin travels to Socorro next week to take on the bulldogs, while Eastlake hope to bounce back against Eastwood at the SAC.
