Div. II football teams scramble for playoff berths

October 24, 2010

A typical Division II playoff scramble is developing with two weeks left in the regular season schedule.
This is the lone league that features an eight-team playoff field. Division II possesses 16 teams, almost double the size of Division I. And because of those numbers, the D-II playoff situation is almost always complicated.
Right now, four D-II teams seem certain to make the Nov. 12-13 quarterfinal round: Tolman (5-0), Woonsocket (4-1), Chariho (4-1) and Johnston (4-1). The scramble for the other four spots won’t be figured out until after the dust clears on Nov. 6.

Total domination: Woonsocket routs Toll Gate, 48-0

October 24, 2010

WARWICK – When he took the head coaching position at Woonsocket High a few years ago, Carnell Henderson stated that one of his primary goals was to develop the Villa Novans into a Division I squad.
He may have got a glimpse of how that would look on Saturday afternoon as his talented and speedy crew certainly played like it belongs there.
An expected close affair with Div. II-B rival Toll Gate was a rout by the first quarter as the Villa Novans spoiled the Titans’ Homecoming contest in a big way, coasting to a surprisingly easy 48-0 victory.

Lincoln stumbles in football loss to Narragansett

October 24, 2010

NARRAGANSETT – Two steps forward, one step back.
All of the good vibes Lincoln High gained in beating previously undefeated Moses Brown the previous week went up in smoke Saturday at Zepp Field. Turnovers and several ill-timed penalties were the major bugaboos in a 23-7 setback to Narragansett High that places the Lions squarely on the bubble of the Division III playoff scene.
“We completely beat ourselves,” was the quick-to-the-point assessment Lincoln head coach Dave Waycott offered after his club slipped to 3-3 in the league, a record now shared by the Mariners.
