In a frenetic two-week turnaround, SRA has seen its season go from being on the brink to one that will include a postseason appearance for the first time since winning the Division I Super Bowl three years ago.

Ponaganset football coach Brian Gendreau has developed a good perspective on two of the toughest teams in Division II this season – unbeaten Tolman and once-beaten Woonsocket. His Chieftains have lost to both Super Bowl contenders.
“Tolman is the fastest team in the league,” Gendreau admitted on Sunday, “but I would say Woonsocket is more balanced. They can run and throw the ball. You can see why they played a 6-0 game earlier this season. Both teams have great defenses.”
