October 1, 2011

In the end, Lincoln proved to be a bit more resilient in an 18-12 win over Burrillville Saturday at Alumni Field. Kyle Jackson broke a 12-12 affair with 30.8 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, the senior wideout hauling in a 36-yard pass that gave the Lions the lead for the first time.

September 30, 2011

CUMBERLAND – For opposing Division I schools, there’s no secret strategy to beat Cumberland High.
