Chieftains let one slip away, 29-23

November 5, 2011

FOSTER — Home sweet home? For Ponaganset, home has been anything but sweet this season.
In their first two games on The Reservation, the Chieftains lost heartbreakers to the Division II-B’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 “Senior Day” gathering, and this one stung a whole lot more than those other defeats.
