October 26, 2012

CRANSTON – 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.

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).
