CENTRAL FALLS — It was only appropriate that Central Falls High head coach Mo Jackson, who had strolled these sidelines for the past 13 years, would leave with a wildly-entertaining, 8-7 upset triumph over Division IV foe North Smithfield on Tuesday night.
His Warriors, who trailed 7-0 after just 2:31 had elapsed in the contest, fought tooth-and-nail in the muck that was – and is – Macomber Stadium, and Jackson reveled in the moment.
This, after all, would be his final home tilt ever at the decades-old ballyard.
