The high school football season will meet its halfway point this weekend, which means a large dose of non-league games and a few league matchups on the areaâ€™s docket.
Eight games make up this weekâ€™s schedule, with tonightâ€™s Division II crossover game between II-B team Cumberland and II-A squad Mount Hope in Bristol and tomorrowâ€™s Division IV duel between Central Falls and Hope in Providence highlighting the top local games.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” It was a simple question, and North Smithfield High head coach Jeremy Sherer responded in kind.
When asked if he was satisfied with his Northmenâ€™s 2-0 Division II victory over East Providence early Thursday evening, he stated merely, â€śNo.â€ť
He claimed he had good reason.
â€śYou know, weâ€™ve had two really good wins this year; the first one against Pilgrim, and the second against Tiverton,â€ť he elaborated. â€śTheyâ€™re both very strong teams, and when we play those types of teams, we do very well. In big games, we step it up a couple of notches.
