PROVIDENCE â€“ The hole was just too big to climb out of.
A gutsy second half effort by North Smithfield wasnâ€™t enough to knock Mount Pleasant from the unbeaten ranks in Division IV on Saturday as the Northmen left Conley Field with a 28-22 loss.
WOONSOCKET â€” Carnell Henderson had a hunch that West Warwick wouldnâ€™t be a pushover. After watching game film of Saturdayâ€™s Division II-B opponent this week, the Woonsocket High coach felt the Wizards were a much better outfit than their 1-5 league mark indicated.
He was rightâ€¦at least for the second half.
Luckily for Hendersonâ€™s crew, it took care of nearly all of its business in the gameâ€™s first two quarters en route to a 29-0 blanking of the Wizards on Senior Day at Barry Field. For the leagueâ€™s top defensive team, the shutout is the Villa Novans fifth of the season.
