SOMERSET, NJ - The Franklin Middle School Warriors crushed Elizabeth 28-6, while playing on Franklin High School's field Thursday afternoon.

Xavier Henderson also helped power the running game with a 20-yard touchdown run of his own. Nyaair Stallings caught the Warriors fourth touchdown of the game, off a 30-yard pass from Johnson to help the Warriors win its 7th game of the season.
FMS Coach Blair Wilson is hoping the team will continue its win streak when they face Piscataway next Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 4:30 pm, at Piscataway High School. Wilson is also looking to the community to come out and show support for the Warriors in its upcoming championship game.
"Next week we play Piscataway," Wilson told TAPinto. "It's going to be funny introducing the team to the Franklin vs Piscataway rivalry. Soon we will be playing championship football on November 6th, and we hope to have the support of the community."
The time, team and location of the game is yet to be determined, but one thing is certain, the Warriors will be there.
