Franklin finally got over the hump, defeating old nemesis St. John's (Shrewsbury) to capture the Division 1 Central championship.

We'll have a full recap up later, but here are some fantastic images from the game, captured by photographer Ryan Bowman. Note that you can click any image in this story to enlarge it to full size.

The refs allowed a LOT of contact go in this one. Here Franklin's Connor Peterson comes down on St. John's center Will Goss.
Did I mention some contact was let go? Here Franklin's Jalen Samuels bumps the arm of St. John's forward Sean Burke to knock the ball loose.
Franklin sophomore Jalen Samuels struggled at the line, but was unstoppable off the bounce, finishing with 15 points.
Franklin's student section was certainly spirited.
