Lacrosse is 3 and 3 on the year after winning Wednesday night at home in Overtime against Madeira. Wildcats were down one with under two minutes to go and scored when Aiden Creech passed to Eli Fugate who scored the game-tying goal with just seconds left in regulation. In Overtime, Ben Black scored an acrobatic goal with 3 seconds left to give the Wildcats the win!

We were back at it this week again versus the Clermont Northeastern Rockets, but this time in Fortnite. Owen Hudson Bateson and Beckett Swoll started out for the Wildcats and quickly fell behind, losing the first two rounds. Hudson Bateson responded with a series of quick headshots to give FHS a round victory, but the Rockets answered back with 3 more rounds. Swoll and Hudson Bateson took round 6, and 7 leaving the match 4-3 in favor of Clermont Northeastern.

Caden Dill and Christian Balhetchet started the Wildcat second set with a dominating 3 rounds in a row led by Balhetchet. With a simple mistake, the Wildcats lost a round, but took rounds 5, 6, 7 to give the Wildcats a 6-1 victory. With the series tied at 1-1, the final set saw Captain David Walton and Noah Woo against the best of the Rockets.

A quick trigger finger by Captain Walton pulled the Wildcats ahead in the first round and momentum never left. Woo’s support propelled the Wildcats to a 4th round win, and gave the Wildcats the go-ahead for the overall match victory! The unstoppable partnership of Woo and Walton lead our team to win ALL 7 ROUNDS. The final match score was 2-1 in favor of FHS! This was our team’s first Fortnite victory for the season.

Wednesday’s Rocket League had the team up against the Skyhawks of Fairborn. To start the first round, Christian Balhetchet scored two goals with the assist from Owen Hudson Bateson and Noah Woo. Noah scored a third goal for the Wildcats, but the Skyhawks responded with two goals of their own. It wasn’t enough and FHS took the game 3-2.

The second round started with plenty of defensive action on both sides of the ball. The Fairborn captain made the first score with 1:57 left to play, and followed up two seconds later with a second. Noah Woo and Captain Balhetchet responded with a pair of goals (asst. Hudson Bateson) for Franklin! As time expired in the second game the game went into overtime where the Skyhawk captain scored giving Fairborn the win 3-2.

As the series tied 1-1, Captain Balhetchet gave his team a pep talk to focus the Wildcats. Woo made a tremendous save early in our third game and allowed Balhetchet to score a quick two goals. A minute later, Balhetchet socred a third giving the Wildcats a strong 3-0 lead. Woo also contributed with a goal late into the game, but the Skyhawks responded with a goal. The game went to the Wildcats with a 4-1 victory. This put the Wildcats ahead 2-1 for the series.

After a brief technical pause, the game resumed. The Wildcats put on a three minute defensive clinic but gave up a goal to the Skyhawk captain. Captain Balhetchet retaliated with a goal of his own, tying the game at one all. Fairborn got the upper hand at the very end with the go-ahead goal to win the game for Fairborn and tie the series at 2 victories a piece. Our final game would decide the match.

Woo and Hudson Bateson assisted with the Balhetchet goal to give the Wildcats an early lead. Hudson Bateson scored his first goal of the series, sharing with Woo and Balhetchet. With two seconds left, Hudson Bateson sealed the victory for the Wildcats with a dominating 3-0 win. This won the match for Franklin!
