Franklin County Seahawks Fall to Chipley High School Tigers in Class 1-A Boys Basketball Regional Semi-Finals
The Chipley, Florida High School Tigers beat the Franklin County Seahawks in the Boys Basketball Class 1-A Regional Semi-Finals elimination game on the Chipley High School campus on Thursday, February 16, 2017, as seen in these photos by Real Florida Media, a subsidiary of The Goulding Agency in Chipley, Florida.
The Franklin County Seahawks ended their regular season with 20 wins and 6 losses (6-2 in district play) and were runners-up in the district after losing to West Gadsden last week, while the Chipley Tiger squad enjoyed a season record of 16 wins and 11 losses (5-1 in district play).
The Tigers won decisively but not without a hard battle, with a final score of 63-47, scoring 6 of those points in the final half minute, and if decibel level can be considered a measurement for enthusiasm, there was that in the Chipley gymnasium last night.
The Chipley Tigers will now face the winner of the Baker High School-West Gadsden High School district playoff game in the regional finals on February 21.
