WOONSOCKET â€“ Time is running out to get a team entered in this yearâ€™s edition of the Mega War Competition at Autumnfest.
Richard and Cheryl Savaria, organizers of the competition, have just one more Open category (18 and older) team slot to fill, and four team berths in the high school competition.
Each of the two team categories offer three prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third, Richard Savaria said on Sunday.
BURRILLVILLE – Perhaps the only thing that went wrong for Burrillville High on this cool-turned-sunny Saturday morning was this: Head coach Gennaro Ferraro's bunch scored so often, sophomore Tom Gieseke's PAT boots kept flying into the brush beyond the east end zone.
The Broncos – still reveling in a 32-26 victory over Division II foe East Greenwich in its non-league opener last week – opened their Division IV campaign in style after crushing Tiverton, 34-0, before an Alumni Field crowd of over 300.
WOONSOCKET – On a Saturday afternoon where Woonsocket High's players, coaches, families and friends were enveloped in emotion – hugs and kisses abounded everywhere in memory of the late Athletic Director George Nasuti – interim head coach Brian Bouley responded in kind.
Minutes after his Villa Novans had clinched a well-earned 22-21 victory over gritty Mount Hope in both squads' Division II-B debut, Bouley grabbed young son Brady's hand and asked, “Do you want to come downstairs with Daddy?”
SCITUATE – Wes Pennington doesn’t like excuses – in fact, he abhors them – enough so that he still wouldn’t be coaxed into making them even after his North Smithfield High squad suffered a series of disasters in its Division IV opener against Scituate.
CUMBERLAND – Meets like Friday’s Blackstone Valley Invitational serve as a way to gauge where teams stand in the season’s early going. Judging by the performance turned in by Burrillville High senior Betsy Dumais, it’s clear that this young lady is out to improve each and every time she toes the starting line.

BURRILLVILLE — Based on Burrillville High’s collective attitude, work ethic and drive so far this fall, veteran mentor Gennaro Ferraro has loved what he’s seen from his squad.
He has mixed emotions about falling from Division III to IV, but indicated he, his staff and players have accepted the new designation.
