Three competitive non-league games on Friday night and a Division IV clash for second place on Saturday afternoon highlight what appears to be a â€˜ho-humâ€™ high school football schedule this weekend in the Blackstone Valley.
On Friday at 7 p.m., there are a handful of non-league games around Rhode Island pitting Division I teams against Division II teams, and three of the games involve schools in our backyard, East Providence, Tolman, and St. Raphael.
The Division I Townies will host nearby Division II-B foe Mount Hope at Pierce Field in a showdown thatâ€™s sure to attract many East Bay fans.
CUMBERLAND â€” After a little more than an hour on Wednesday afternoon, Cumberland High coach John Jasionowski watched his squad suffer a quick 7-0 loss to Division I power Mount St. Charles Academy.
While most of their matches havenâ€™t been quite as quick, the end result has been status quo for the winless Clippers this fall, owners of an 0-10 mark and last place in I-North. Last year, Cumberland had a similar record in its first season in the stateâ€™s toughest division, finishing 2-11 overall.
