CUMBERLAND â€“ Saturday nightâ€™s Division II-B football contest between Cumberland and St. Raphael is still scheduled to kick off at 7 oâ€™clock.
The location, however, has changed.
Thanks to Fridayâ€™s rainstorm shutting down operations on the track surface at Tucker Field, Cumberland officials found themselves in a precarious position, that of scrambling to find a last-minute venue that would still allow the game to take place on its rescheduled night. Their wishes didnâ€™t go unanswered for long, as Pawtucketâ€™s Max Read Field will now serve as the Clippersâ€™ â€śhome fieldâ€ť against the Saints.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Shea High veteran mentor Pierre Ridore explained how irritated he had been back on Tuesday afternoon after his squad, playing with little emotion or care, had surrendered a 1-0 defeat to struggling Central Falls.
â€śIt was our first loss to Central Falls dating back to 2003; it was our Blackstone Valley Invitational (Tournament) game,â€ť he stated. â€śWe hadn't lost to them in over a decade, and I told the kids that it shouldn't have happened, that they were playing too lazy.â€ť
