Thornhill, Broncos bust out against Tiverton, 42-13

October 26, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – Last Saturday night, after Burrillville High had posted a solid 34-8 victory over Exeter/West Greenwich, head coach Gennaro Ferraro explained that – following three previous dismal blowout losses – he felt his squad was “rounding the corner.

“I thought the kids got bumped off their orbit a little bit … we needed this win, and we got it,” he noted. “I think we're back on track.”

If Saturday afternoon is any indication, the Broncos' thundering herd has … well, been heard, and who knows what to expect from them as November draws near.

WOONSOCKET — Mayor Leo Fontaine has amended a campaign finance report submitted to the state Board of Elections this week after the original erroneously indicated he neither spent nor took in any money since the beginning of the month.

Richard Thornton, director of campaign finance for the state Board of Elections, said the corrected report was filed on Wednesday, a day after the deadline, and since it contains significantly new information from the original, Fontaine will be charged a $25 late fee.

WILL-POWER: Andino carries Novans offense in 20-8 win over Titans

October 26, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Saturday afternoon marked “Senior Day” for the Woonsocket High football team, and a pre-game celebration – one in which the dozen soon-to-be graduates issued flowers to their parents and/or guardians – must have had them feeling rather satisfied.

The inner peace didn't quite show itself during the 48 minutes of battling against Division II-A foe Toll Gate, but the gritty Villa Novans nevertheless left Barry Field with a 20-8 triumph.
