Franklinton’s Demons begin District 9-4A play on Friday with a road game against Lakeshore.

The Demons enter this week with a 3-4 record after defeating Pope John Paul II, 53-8, on Friday.

“It was a good win and a dominant performance by our guys,” Franklinton coach Jonathan Barber said. “The plan was to make sure we started fast, and we did that. Our guys were down after last week, we try to preach to them not to let one week affect the other. We thought we had an advantage on the perimeter, and we exploited that in the first half. We have to put it behind us quickly because district and distractions of the fair are (this) week. Our team is playing with some confidence right now, and we look forward to competing for the district championship. Kelly Daniels had a huge game on Friday, accounting for three touchdowns. He caught five passes for 141 yards and two scores and he tallied on a 16-yard run.
