BRISTOL â€“ In a sea of big plays, there was one in particular on this Friday night that captured what this Woonsocket High football team is all about.
With host Mount Hope looking to gain any sort of traction against a Woonsocket defense that continues to be the definition of stingy, the Huskies opted for a little trickery. Down six points in the third quarter, one of Mount Hopeâ€™s key cogs in the running game, Aidan Silva, took the exchange from center.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Donâ€™t look for the Rhode Island National Guard marching band in the lead division of the Autumnfest Parade on Columbus Day.
They wonâ€™t be there.
For the first time in many years, the 40-member military contingent known as the â€śGovernorâ€™s Own 88th Army Bandâ€ť will be unable to perform in the parade â€“ and other holiday events around the state â€“ because of the partial government shutdown.
