Machar Francis Last Second Pin Gives Townies Exciting Win Over Rams


It came down to an exciting last second pin by the Townies Machar Francis as East Providence defeated La Salle in Wednesday night’s wrestling match at EPHS. The Townies took a 40-32 win over the Rams to maintain their team unbeaten record this season. Francis and his La Salle opponent wrestled hard to the end when Francis got the pin to win the match for the Townies.

The varsity match followed the middle school Mayor’s Cup challenge between Martin and Riverside middle schools on Wednesday, January 17th at East Providence High School. While Martin took the team victory, Townie fans supported both teams as future Townies were showcased. “When Martin and Riverside play, the real winner is EPHS,” was a popular refrain of the night.
