WARWICK — Mistakes were made by Ponaganset High in its Division II-B opener against Toll Gate on Saturday. In the first half alone, the Chieftains committed 14 penalties, two of which negated touchdowns.
Still, despite the numerous yellow flags tossed, it was smooth sailing for the Chieftains, who scored four times in the initial half and cruised to a dominating 38-0 triumph over the Titans. Senior quarterback Chris Larabee tossed for two touchdowns, senior Sam Fasano rushed for a pair of scores and junior Scott Peterson also found the end zone twice for the Chieftains.

“Extremely frustrating,” Northmen coach Wes Pennington said when asked to describe what he had just seen. “We fought hard but you can’t win football games turning the ball over like that.”
Fresh off a season-opening 55-26 romp over Burrillville, the Northmen entered their Division IV opener seeking to maintain the momentum built by the 2010 squad that qualified for the playoffs with a 6-2 league record.
