Sundayâ€™s Division II Super Bowl game between unbeaten (in league play) Tolman and defending champion Woonsocket needs no hype from the media. These two teams stand on their own merits.
WOOD RIVER JUNCTION â€” Chariho High got off to a very good start, but Woonsocket High pulled off a fantastic finish.
The Villa Novans scored a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns and saw their lights-out defense force the Chargers to turn the ball over on their final four series in a 21-7 semifinal-round victory on Tuesday night on the Chargersâ€™ turf that put them back into the Division II Super Bowl.
PROVIDENCE â€” During the league season last month, Lincoln High had its way with Moses Brown and handed its Division III foe its first loss of the fall.
Letâ€™s just say the Quakers took that defeat personal.
In the more-important rematch between the two squads â€” a semifinal tilt on Tuesday night â€” Moses Brown returned the favor with a convincing 21-0 blanking of the Lions at Brown Universityâ€™s Berylson Field.
WEST GREENWICH â€” The North Smithfield football threw a lot of punches and had the champ on the ropes.
But just when it looked like the champ was done, they found a way.
The Northmen threw â€“ literally and figureatively â€“ everything they had at Exeter-West Greenwich, but couldnâ€™t close out the defending Division IV champions in overtime, coming up one yard short in the second OT as North Smithfield fell 44-38 in the D-IV semifinals Tuesday night.
