NORTH PROVIDENCE --- For a team that hasnâ€™t experienced many close contests this year, North Smithfield handled the pressure of Friday nightâ€™s Division IV nailbiter on the road with North Providence quite well.
The Northmen picked up a huge victory before a large crowd, a 27-21 overtime triumph, that not only spoiled the Cougarsâ€™ â€˜Senior Nightâ€™ festivities, but also saw one of N.S.â€™s youngest players, sophomore receiver Peter Keenan, score the game-winning touchdown on a reverse handoff.
