Franklin Regional's hockey team was one of the first this season to play an outdoor game when it faced Hampton on the Penguins Pond at Highmark Stadium on Pittsburgh's South Side.

Though the Panthers (0-9-0) were defeated, 8-1, by the always-strong Talbots (6-1-1), the chance to play an outdoor game was a special opportunity for the players from both teams.

Zach Bearley had FR's goal on the power play, assisted by Riley Fagan and Ryan Watson. Mike Damian turned away 29 shots for FR, while Hampton was led by Zach Kosick's four goals.
