On Friday, October 7, the Bellbrook Golden Eagles faced the Franklin Wildcats in the annual Homecoming football game. The Eagles returned to their home field after a two-week hiatus. To fuel student involvement, the Football Moms Club sold “Beat Franklin” tee-shirts during lunch, which bore similarities to the white tee-shirts sold during previous basketball seasons when Luke Kennard played for Franklin. The shirts accompanied the purple-and-gold theme that the student section sported. Additionally, the homecoming court was recognized and the king and queen, Tom Orbash and Natalie Stein, were crowned at halftime.
Franklin proved a tough team to beat last year, beating the Eagles 28-20 on Franklin’s turf. This year, Bellbrook lost to Franklin’s strong team, 51-13.
