Mansfield Dominates Franklin and Stays Undefeated

By Jonathan Geromini, HockomockSports.com Student Reporter

FRANKLIN, Mass. – Mansfield took their undefeated record into Pisini Field against Franklin on Friday night and once again improved their resume with a 35-13 drumming of the Panthers. 

The Hornets wasted no time getting on the board as quarterback Kyle Wisnieski connected with wide receiver Mike Hershman for a 10 yard touchdown pass on the opening drive. Franklin responded with a 20 yard field goal but Mansfield struck right back with Miguel Perez running in a touchdown from five yards out of the end zone.

Mansfield concluded the half with star wide out Brendan Hill catching an 8 yard touchdown 
pass from Wisnieski just when time expired. Miguel Perez added another running touchdown in the third and the Hornets added another score wrapping the game at 35-13 improving the Hock leaders to 7-0 on the season.

“We did well with executing drives,” Mansfield coach Mike Redding said. “We had a lot of 
guys who contributed in a big way for us which will be important as we move along with the season.”

Mansfield has accomplished many things in the season and have positioned themselves for a run at another Super Bowl title.

 

“To be honest the Super Bowl is not really in sight for us,” Redding said. “There are a lot 
of tough teams in our division that we have to get by. We just have to take it one Friday night at a time and make sure to keep executing our plays and working hard as a team.”

Both Mansfield and Franklin will await their opponents for the upcoming MIAA tournament and as both teams seem to be heading in two different directions, as Mansfield seems primed to push through the stretch run and into the playoffs. Both teams will learn of their opponents on Sunday.
