In their first two games on The Reservation, the Chieftains lost heartbreakers to the Division II-Bâ€™s top two clubs, West Warwick and Tolman. The Wizards rallied for 14 fourth-quarter points to eke out a 14-12 triumph, and the Tigers used three touchdowns in the second half to grab a 21-14 victory.
On Saturday afternoon, the Chieftains suffered another agonizing loss before a big â€śSenior Dayâ€ť gathering, and this one stung a whole lot more than those other defeats.

The threat was reported to the police department's anonymous tipline on Thursday and prompted an investigation to identify the sender.
