WOONSOCKET â€” For the first time in a long while, Cumberland High actually defeated archrival Lincoln.
It happened on Wednesday night at Adelard Arena, with the still-undefeated Clippers edging the previously-unbeaten Lions, 2-1, in a Division II-North showdown.
Sophomore Jake Salisbury notched the game winner with 3:58 remaining in regulation. After a scoreless initial stanza, Cumberland took a 1-0 advantage on Salisburyâ€™s unassisted tally just 1:01 into the second.
Lincoln, however, knotted it at 1-1 when senior Mike Enos converted Aaron Fiskeâ€™s feed at 9:44.
