Woonsocket High Football | Villa Novans prove no match for Central in 40-0 defeat

October 11, 2014

WOONSOCKET -- As always after a Woonsocket High game, cheerleaders and volunteer moms set up a buffet table complete with pasta, pizza and other goodies for their players and coaches to gobble.

When the Villa Novans took a considerable amount of time – perhaps 20 minutes – to finally file out of the Barry Field locker rooms and offices, one questioned, “Where are they? The food’s getting cold.”

An instant later, a trainer walked out of the closed door and provided the answer: “They’re still being yelled at.”
