Isaiah Rickard, Zander Garner lead Franklin past Roosevelt for 4-0 start

Franklin 23, Roosevelt 8: Zander Garner connected with Isaiah Rickard on two touchdown passes and the host Lightning exploited turnovers by the Roughriders (1-3) to remain undefeated. 

Rickard had two interceptions, and teammate Rye Storrs intercepted a pass and returned a fumble for a touchdown to seal the victory for the Lightning (4-0). 

Roosevelt defensive back TJ Jackson made two interceptions as part of a unit that kept the game competitive. Lineman Sosiua Taumoeanga was in on several big stops for the Roughriders, who also got strong play from defensive end Nathan Horsey. 

The Lightning have doubled their win total from the previous two seasons combined. They last had as many as four wins in a season in 2017, when they made the OSAA Class 6A playoffs.
