North Smithfield Blackstone and Woonsocket Edition Sports & Recreation @ SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2019 BLACKSTONE – Blackstone- Millville Regional head football coach Josh Euglow has been with the Chargers' program since its first day of existence in 2013, and last season, the sixth-year head coach had a front row seat to what turned into arguably the most magical season in the team's short history. "It was actually a little surpris- ing that we made the playoffs," he said. "We ended the regular sea- son at .500, and we really didn't think that was going to be good enough to make it. But we won our last game of the season to NORTH SMITHFIELD – The North Smithfield/Mount Saint Charles co-op foot- ball team made some history last November by appearing in its first Division IV Super Bowl. But before the co-op squad could put the finishing touches on an undefeated champion- ship season, Tiverton ruined the day in their title game by battling back from a 22-0 deficit to post a 49-23 victory. It was a difficult ending to such a remark- able season, but only four players graduated from N.S./Mount's team. Forty-two players make up this season's roster, with 10 coming from the Woonsocket private school. "If we can stay healthy, it would be good to get back to the championship," veteran head coach Wes Pennington said. "We want to compete in every game and play the best that we can each week. Then we'll let the chips fall where they may." Among this year's returning players is senior quarterback and three-year starter Jack Puccetti, who Pennington said "is probably one of the better quarterbacks in the league," and N.S./Mount also has its backfield return- ing in senior Cade Curran and juniors Jared Beaudoin and Jordan Allard. "I feel like this could be one of the best combo backfields in the state," Pennington said. All of the team's linebackers are also coming back, including junior Mike Paiva, Allard, and Beaudoin, as well as senior wide receiver Josh Carufel and junior wide receiver Pasquale Camastro, who is also one of the best kickers in the state and was a Second- Team All-State selection at that position last year. The returning linemen include seniors Cole Dubois, Frank Deluca, Matt Beausoleil, and Matthew McSally, and Dubois, Puccetti, and Carufel are this season's captains. "The good thing is we have 13 seniors and 12 juniors," Pennington said.
