end Evan Gravel at the N.S./Mount 27. That spoiled one of Tiverton's best drives of the night, and it helped set up a 56-yard touchdown run by Allard that made it a 20-0 game with 2:47 left in the first half. But the night was far from a perfect one for the hosts. Not only did they rack up 85 yards of penalties, but they also had their share of dropped balls, including three that would have been easy interceptions. "That's the growing part, things that we have to do better if we want to be able to compete down the road," said Pennington. "But the penalties, the dropped balls, if we clean up that stuff, we'll be in good shape." "I thought we played really well," added Camastro. "There's a few things we need to work on, but each week, we'll get better." The locals scored the only points they needed on a 20-yard touchdown run by Allard with 4:23 to play in the first quarter, and that score came three plays after Rapoza recovered a Tiverton fumble at the Tigers' 44. In the opening series of the third quarter, Tiverton tried to claw its way back into the game with an eight-play drive that saw quarterback Michael Keating hit wide receiver Michael Roy with a 59-yard pass and a 15-yard penalty by the hosts give the Tigers a first-and-10 at the N.S./Mount 26. But the Tigers lost four yards on their first play and ended up turning the ball over on downs. N.S./Mount eventually put the game away on a 28-yard touch- down run by Allard with 4:13 left in the quarter, a 31-yard field goal by Camastro 65 seconds into the fourth quarter, and an 11-yard touchdown run by junior tailback Declan Curran with 2:21 to play in the game. N.S./Mount is back at home on Friday with a 6:30 p.m. game against another co-op team, the Juanita Sanchez/Providence Country Day squad, which opened its season last Saturday with a 6-0 non-league vic- tory over Davies that saw the winners receive a big game from their speedy quarterback, junior Noel Torres. After that game, N.S./Mount will play three teams who are also new- comers to D-III, but dropped down from D-II, Johnston, Coventry, and Classical, and only its game against Coventry will be at home. "We have four more games and two of them are at home," said Pennington. "If we can just play well here, then maybe we can surprise somebody. We'll see what happens."

FOOTBALL From Page 9 R.I. trout fishing season kicks off next Wednesday PROVIDENCE – The Department of Environmental Management recently announced that the state's trout-stocked lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams will open for fishing on Wednesday, April 7, at 6 a.m. The DEM's Division of Fish and Wildlife is stocking over 60,000 hatch- ery-raised rainbow, brook, golden rainbow and brown trout and 4,000 Sebago salmon in more than 100 waterways across the state. Foster Green Acres, Geneva Brook and Pond in North Providence, Memorial Park Pond in Johnston, Spring Grove Pond in Glocester, Wallum Lake in Burrillville, and the state's children-only fishing ponds will not be stocked because of potential crowding issues, problems with access for stocking, or water level issues. If conditions improve, these sites may be stocked later this spring. During the COVID-19 public health emergency, fishing should be enjoyed as a solitary experience or with mem- bers of your immediate household, not as a group activity. Visit to purchase a fishing license, or the DEM's website for an up-to-date list of trout stocking locations or for more information. 2021 SUMMER CAMP for Children Ages 5-12 Open Camp Registration throughout the Summer! 1589 Putnam Pike, Chepachet, RI 02814 401-568-3580 Check out website for our COVID guidelines Properties Stearns/McGee Team IT'S TIME TO Sell YOUR HOUSE!
