CUMBERLAND -- Cumberland High tuned up for next Fridayâ€™s showdown game against unbeaten Johnston with a 7-0 non-league victory over Toll Gate on Friday night at Tucker Field.
The Clippers got the gameâ€™s only score in the second quarter when Ben Elliott broke free on a 20-yard touchdown run. Chad Bacon booted the extra point and Cumberland took a 7-0 lead into halftime.
The Clippersâ€™ defense stood tall throughout the game.
â€śToll Gate didnâ€™t really have a scoring threat,â€ť Cumberland coach Chris Skurka said.
LINCOLN --- Lincoln need this win. Badly.
Ryan Oâ€™Dellâ€™s eight-yard touchdown pass to Brendan Reddington with 2:55 remaining in the game erased a two-point deficit and helped the Lions score their biggest win to date, a 20-14 victory over previously-unbeaten Moses Brown on Friday night at Ferguson Field.
The Lions improved to 3-2 in Division III action with the triumph, and more importantly, stayed in the five-team hunt for the four postseason berths with Rogers (4-0), Middletown and the Quakers (both 3-1), and Burrillville (2-2).
PAWTUCKET â€” Like â€śtrickâ€ť birthday candles, hot spots continued to
flare up in the rubble of the Union Wadding Mill complex as late as
Friday afternoon, keeping city firefighters busy. According to Robert
Howe, the city's Emergency Management Director, two engine
companies and a ladder truck remained on the scene, trying to douse
smoldering areas of the sprawling, circa 1847 brick building.
