FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - Dominic Wright hit the game-winning shot to beat the buzzer and give the Franklin Warriors a thrilling 68-67 boys basketball victory over Immaculata on Thursday night. Francis Omolewe led all scorers with a game-high 27 points and helped spark a Warriors team rally.  

The Warriors battled back after trailing 25-10 at the end of the first quarter, with a strong performance in the second half. They won the third quarter with a 13 point edge and took the lead 55-54 in the fourth on a two-point shot by DaQuan Williams with 4:43 left in the game. 

Matthew Xi hit two clutch free throws with less than two minutes left in the game to help the Warriors stay ahead. Immaculata tried to rally back and took the lead 67-66 with a second left in the game, but their efforts were not enough to fend off the team effort of the Warriors.
