FORT MILL, S.C. â€“ When you cut right to the heart of the matter, itâ€™s pretty fitting that the Pawtucket Red Sox completed their ascension to the top of the International League mountain in the very same stadium that served as the launching point for a two-plus week stretch of unprecedented success.
Now the games count.
The preseason scrimmages, Injury Fund contests, and last weekendâ€™s non-league openers are all history. Now the high school football games, pitting division opponents against each other, mean something in the standings.
And they get under way tonight, with eight league games scattered throughout the state, and one, a Division IV contest between North Smithfield and Hope, taking place tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. in Providence.
