PAWTUCKET â€” Shea High coach Pierre Ridore compares his team to a luxury car. The Raiders are fast, they look good on an open course, and they make heads turn with the beauty of their engine running at full speed.
East Providence coach Tony Vieira found other words to describe the Raiders after his team dropped a 5-0 decision to Shea on Wednesday afternoon.
Barry Field promises to be a packed house with plenty of energetic fans on Saturday afternoon when two-time Division II champion Woonsocket High entertains Tolman High in a Division II-B clash and a spirited rematch of last seasonâ€™s Super Bowl.
And while the fans from both teams hope to see a battle thatâ€™s as thrilling and competitive as last yearâ€™s 6-0 regular-season victory by the Tigers and 28-14 Super Bowl triumph by the Novans, both head coaches, Tolmanâ€™s Dave Caito and Woonsocketâ€™s Carnell Henderson, hope to see their respective teams play a lot better than they did a week ago.
