PAWTUCKET â€“ Sure, his eyes and feet played a part in guiding Joselito Knapp to the end zone. To the Tolman quarterback, that only begins to cover what transpired with under six minutes remaining in Fridayâ€™s Division II quarterfinal matchup with Westerly at Pariseau Field.
PROVIDENCE --- Jeff Craven tormented Shea High again on Friday night, but this time, the Barrington High senior standout victimized the Raiders on the biggest stage of the season -- the Division I championshp game.
Craven netted a pair of first-half goals and the Eaglesâ€™ superb defense did its part to fend off the high-scoring Raidersâ€™ assault the rest of the way en route to a 2-1 win and the teamâ€™s record 11th state title at Rhode Island College.
CENTRAL FALLS --- It was of North Smithfield High head coach Wes Pugh-Pennington's volition to treat his Division IV showdown against Central Falls High on Friday night as a road playoff game.
â€śOur plan was to keep it simple,â€ť he stated. â€śWe knew it was their Homecoming, so we wanted to use this as preparation for the playoffs. We knew we'd see a tough C.F. Team come in and play hard, so we wanted to run the ball, mix it up and gain some yardage. But we also wanted to prove that we're North Smithfield, we're no fluke, and that we come to play football.â€ť
