Region – The Central Massachusetts Division 1 finals between St. John’s High School and Franklin High School were held at Worcester State University March 10. These two teams are no strangers to battling it out on the court, and Franklin came up short three years in a row until this year.  St. John’s jumped out with a lead in the first quarter, but Franklin worked to narrow the lead and tied things up in the third quarter.  The game was back and forth for three quarters, and ultimately tied 60-60 at the buzzer. Franklin then defeated St. John’s in the overtime, 67-64.
