Cumberland football team prepares for season

August 31, 2011

CUMBERLAND — 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 year’s Division II state runner-up Tolman facing Cumberland at 7 p.m.
While tomorrow night’s game means nothing in the standings, Cumberland coach Chris Skurka will be eager to see how his club fares against the Tigers.

The potential is there for possibly double that amount on Sept. 10 when the 11th annual event takes place at the Bryant University campus.

Much of Blackstone still without power

August 31, 2011

BLACKSTONE — Main Street in this village-like outpost on the state line usually has everything a busy mother of two needs, but lately it just hasn't been the same.
“You can't do anything in Blackstone,” said Tara Rogala as she pulled up to the drive-through at Dean Bank. “You can't do laundry. You can't do groceries. I have to drive 20 minutes to Woonsocket to do anything. Not having power with two small kids isn't easy.”

Too early to predict, says area coaches

August 30, 2011

Asking a high school football coach to “preview” his team during the final week of preseason practice is really premature. It’s at least a week too early for that. Besides, coaches only want to talk about known commodities. Sometimes it takes half of a season to figure out the identity of these embryonic football teams.
Coaches are always willing to talk about certain subjects: veteran players, team leaders, practice schedules, lack of depth on the roster … there’s a whole litany of subjects that coaches are dealing with as the summer begins to fade away.
