NORTH SMITHFIELD â For the first time in recent memory, North Smithfield High's Thanksgiving morning tilt at Division IV rival Scituate will have more on the line than mere casual alumni interest and bragging rights for the victor.
With a triumph, the Northmen â which have already sealed a semifinal berth â will earn the No. 3 seed in the playoffs and battle Exeter/West Greenwich at its home at 7 p.m., Tuesday.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â It was early in the second quarter of a non-league tilt against Plainfield, Conn. on Friday night, Nov. 1 when North Smithfield High junior tailback Nick Cicerone hustled out of his stance to snag a middle screen pass from classmate Cody DeMarie.
Little did he know at the time it could be his last snap of the Northmen's so-far successful campaign.
âA lineman tipped it, but I went up for it and caught it,â the younger Cicerone stated while watching a recent practice from the sideline. He immediately paused and looked at a teammate.
