CUMBERLAND â€“ Blowouts in the postseason are few and far between, but on Friday night, Cumberland picked up a lopsided victory against a club that had given them difficult battles over the years.
Junior tailback Mike Stock ran for 168 yards on 24 carries, and the Clippersâ€™ ground game received a big helping hand from its offensive line in totaling over 300 yards, controlling the clock, and paving the way for a 42-7 triumph over Coventry in their Division II quarterfinal-round affair at Tucker Field.
NORTH SMITHFIELD -- Given the fact that this was a much easier verdict than he ever thought possible, North Smithfield High head coach Wes Pennington replaced his starting backfield with underclassmen Jake Palmer and Devon Deragon.
For the diminutive Palmer, he had the time of his life, both during and after the Northmen celebrated a stunningly simplistic 61-8 Senior Night triumph over Central Falls on Friday night.
