CRANSTON â€“ In a game that featured two squads that dug in defensively and refused to give any ground, Cranston West walked off with a 10-7 overtime victory against Tolman Friday night at Cranston Stadium.
The Falconsâ€™ Stefano Marziale played the role of hero with a chip shot 20-yard field goal that proved to settle this Division I tussle. Cranston West opted to settle for three points on fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line after Tolman held its opponent to three yards spanning three snaps (the Falcons started out at the 5 after the Tigers were penalized for too many men on the field).
CUMBERLAND --- For the past four years, Cumberland and Shea have thrown their records out the window and hooked up in some thrilling battles that were decided by a handful of points.
For three-plus quarters of their Division II-B game on Friday night, the undefeated Clippers and the struggling Raiders were locked in another close contest, but the Clippers, thanks to a pair of touchdowns in the final 8:46 of play, were able to create some distance between themselves and their visitors and come away with a 28-9 victory.

For Burrillville and Lincoln, Saturdayâ€™s Division III encounter at the Broncosâ€™ Alumni Field has â€śsomethingâ€™s got to giveâ€ť written all over it. The setting is this: you have two squads that have combined to drop all nine of its league chances, meaning the opportunity for a team to finally break the ice and walk off the field with a win tucked in its back pocket has never been more within reach (overall the Lions are 0-6 while the Broncos are 1-5).
