What began as a struggle for the ball between Highlands Jordan Carrier and two Franklin players, turned into an all-out wrestling match between Highlands Kedra McCall and Franklin #20 with neither player giving up without hearing the whistle. McCall comes up with the ball, her only problem is she’s tangled up with the Franklin player and can’t stand up. McCall checked her 6 (behind her) and dished it off to Carrier with a backwards over-the-head pass.
