Villa Novans dig deep, top Bulldogs in OT

September 29, 2012

WESTERLY — It’s a long 65-mile drive from Woonsocket to Westerly’s Augeri Field, but the Villa Novans’ bus ride home from the southwestern point of the state on Saturday afternoon had to be a very enjoyable drive.
That’s because the Villa Novans took a 19-18 overtime thriller from the previously-undefeated Bulldogs in their Division II-A clash, a hard-fought win that upped their league record to 2-1 and packed them into a congested three-way tie for second place (behind undefeated Johnston) with Westerly and Coventry.

NORTH PROVIDENCE — For North Smithfield, Saturday’s Division IV contest against North Providence was more of a mental exercise than physical.
Forced to come back on a few occasions, the Northmen dug deep to take this shootout, 38-34. North Providence enjoyed leads early – 12-0 after the first quarter – and late – 34-31 with 8:47 remaining – before N.S. delivered a series of game-changing plays on both sides of the ball that allowed the visitors to cast a pall over the Cougars’ Homecoming celebration.
