Sophomore Lamarious “Monk” Martin’s return from a collarbone injury gave Franklin County the playmaker it desperately needed and the Seahawks snapped a three-game losing streak.
Martin caught six passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns and returned three punts for 85 yards for Franklin County.
Freshman quarterback Colin Amison threw three touchdown passes in his first start, also connecting with junior Javon Pride. Senior Colton Evans added an interception return for a touchdown.
“We got Monk back and got a kid off the basketball team,” Franklin County coach Tony Yeomans said, remarking on a year where a number of starters already have been lost for the season.
“Otherwise we didn’t have a playmaker and it had been a different atmosphere. Having Monk back gave us that electricity.”
The Seahawks also produced six turnovers by Branford, 3-3. Senior Tonnor Segree had three sacks and forced a fumble.
