MALONE – The Franklin Academy softball team routed Potsdam, 16-1 in five innings to open the 2021 season at home Tuesday.

“The girls played very well for our first game of the season,” Huskies coach Terry Collins said. “I hope they can keep the momentum as we have a very challenging week playing OFA, Governeur and Canton on the road against tough competition.”
