November 26, 2012

Three local teams — Cumberland, Woonsocket, and North Smithfield — are among the 16 that will suit up tonight in their respective semifinal-round games, with the Clippers and Villa Novans playing Division II games in the friendly confines of their home fields and the Northmen heading to Providence for a Division IV contest.
