GLOCESTER â€“ West Glocester Fire Department members were being credited with saving a popular Putnam Pike business, Snowâ€™s Clam Box, after a fire broke out in the dining room early Sunday.
The fire at the 2461 Putnam Pike restaurant was reported at about 5 a.m. police said Sunday and drew a quick response from the nearby West Glocester companies.
The game had been over for nearly 15 minutes, maybe a bit longer, but the Cumberland High gridders remained on the Tucker Field turf posing for pictures for any amateur photographer who asked.
Some danced around with teammates, others issued hugs to parents while a few gathered around the one holding the annual Thanksgiving Day trophy to study the history behind it.
Head coach Josh Lima and his assistants did the same; it seemed no one wanted to leave after the Clippers delivered a 42-6 blow to traditional holiday rival Woonsocket on Saturday night.
CUMBERLAND – Cumberland High head coach Josh Lima chose to employ a few funky wrinkles to his offense during its Thanksgiving Day-postponed, non-league tilt against annual archrival Woonsocket on chilly Saturday night.
He claimed such designed plays to both offensive and defensive linemen had been installed way back in August and September, but had used them sparingly this fall.
PROVIDENCE – The “condensed lineup” that Providence head coach Ed Cooley rolled out Friday afternoon proved good enough to fend off Yale, 72-66.
