Masse's big day helps Cumberland take 50th annual Thanksgiving Day showdown with Woonsocket

November 28, 2013

WOONSOCKET — With the Division II Super Bowl looming a week from Sunday, Cumberland High veteran mentor Chris Skurka took a somewhat conservative approach to the annual Thanksgiving morning clash with Woonsocket on chilly, gusty Thursday.
In an effort not to “break” any key spokes in his wheel, he chose not to start senior tailback Mike Stock; he wanted him to get some rest after he rushed for four touchdowns and 145 yards (with one catch for another paydirt) in his Clippers' 49-35 semifinal triumph over St. Raphael last Friday night.

North Smithfield crushes Scituate, clinches No. 3 seed in Division IV playoffs

November 28, 2013

SCITUATE – An important piece to the Division IV playoff puzzle was settled Thursday morning at wind swept and bitterly cold Caito Field.
Led by three rushing touchdowns from senior Dylan Naradowy, North Smithfield locked up the No. 3 seed in convincing fashion with a 53-20 whitewashing of holiday foe Scituate. Had the Spartans prevailed, they would have pushed the Northmen to the fourth position, which would have resulted in a semifinal-round date with regular-season champion and top-seed North Providence.
