    What a finish…wow. That reach at the end did look like a foul. Your thoughts Tom?
    Two great teams going at it.

    Fan,
    I did think it was a foul. Just a tough situation all around to decide D-10 on it lol. I was talking to a few Franklin parents and they were happy but at the same time wish it would have ended with a jumper or something lol.

    Either way, it wouldn’t shock me if these two meet in the quarters if both keep playing well.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Yeah that is a tough way to end it. I’m glad the official called it though – it seems like officials have gotten away from calling legitimate fouls on the last shot of a game because they “want to let the kids decide it”. I think that is somewhat of a cop out on the officials part, regardless the kids are deciding it on that foul call.

    So, credit to the official for making the correct call.

    I am w/you and wouldn’t be surprised if they make it meet each other again.
