Though the Franklin girls’ basketball team may not be of Tournament of Champions-caliber this season, any win over them can be considered a statement win.
Especially because Hillsborough had lost twice to the Warriors this season, once by 22, and the second time by six.
Turned out the third time was the charm.
Tonight, in the Somerset County Tournament semifinals, the 6th-seeded Lady Raiders (15-7) will look to make it to the championship when they face second-seed Gill St. Bernard’s (16-4).
They split with GSB this year, winning their first meeting by three on January 6th, but dropping the rematch in Gladstone – where they’ll play tonight – by a 62-43 score.
