CUMBERLAND â€” The Blackstone Valley area will be well represented on Friday night at Tucker Field with four local squads participating in a trio of Injury Fund tilts.
The two-quarter, non-league games, which begin at 6 p.m., kicks off with Central Falls battling Shea, followed by last yearâ€™s Division II state runner-up Tolman facing Cumberland at 7 p.m.
While tomorrow nightâ€™s game means nothing in the standings, Cumberland coach Chris Skurka will be eager to see how his club fares against the Tigers.
SMITHFIELD â€” Save for the inaugural event in 2001, the Shawn M. Nassaney Memorial Cross-Country Race/Walk has consistently drawn an average of 500 participants each year.
The potential is there for possibly double that amount on Sept. 10 when the 11th annual event takes place at the Bryant University campus.
