Ponaganset hosts Burrillville on Thanksgiving

November 19, 2011

Ponaganset and Burrillville could both use a win on Thursday to finish their seasons with a good taste in their mouths.
Each squad struggled this season. Ponaganset missed the playoffs with a 3-4 record in Division II-B while Burrillville suffered through a 1-7 season in Division III.
Burrillville won this holiday game 21-0 last year on its home field. The Broncos lead the series, 14-11.
