November 12, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Cumberland High made enough big plays on Saturday night to knock Tolman out of the Division II playoffs.
The Clippers got a 75-yard touchdown run by Erik Travers in the first quarter and then pulled out a 13-9 victory with a scoring drive in the final 4-1/2 minutes that was capped by Ryan Gaumond’s game-winning one-yard plunge with 1:36 left in the contest.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN — With an endless flow of bodies crashing to the floor and countless near-impossible saves, Ponaganset High never backed down from Coventry in the Division I finals.

The Chieftains did everything in their power to dethrone I-South's top-seeded Knotty Oakers Saturday afternoon at Keaney Gymnasium. But in the end, it may have been the experience of a senior-laden Coventry squad that made the difference in a narrow, 3-2 win with scores of 24-26, 28-26, 25-17, 21-25, 15-11.
