North Smithfield Blackstone and Woonsocket Edition Sports & Recreation valleybreeze.com @ APRIL 1-7, 2021 NORTH SMITHFIELD – High school football openers don't get any better than the one that the North Smithfield/Mount Saint Charles co-op team enjoyed last Friday night – even if it did take place on the last weekend of March. Hosting Tiverton High in a rematch of the last two Division IV Super Bowls, N.S./Mount saw senior tail- back Jordan Allard run for 198 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries and its defense pitch a shutout by allowing just 102 yards of real estate and piling up five quarterback sacks, two fumble recoveries, and an inter- ception, and all that paved the way to an impressive 36-0 victory. Like every RIIL team that took the field last weekend, N.S./Mount and Tiverton, which were promoted to D-III during the offseason realign- ment, were playing in their first games in 16 months. They took the field in 60-degree temperatures that almost made it feel like it was an ordinary October evening, and the families of the players were spread out in the bleachers. "It felt really good to be out here," said N.S./Mount senior Pasquale Camastro. "I'm trying to enjoy every second because I know this is my last year of high school football and you can't get any better than this." You couldn't get any better than what N.S./Mount did in its triumph, especially on offense, as the hosts racked up 301 yards, with 264 coming on the ground and Allard and senior fullback Jared Beaudoin (11 carries, 63 yards) leading the attack. Quietly helping sophomore quarterback Cole Vowels and the backfield do their jobs was the stel- lar performance turned in by N.S./ Mount's offensive line, which received some praise from head coach Wes Pennington after the game. "They're coming along, and they're going to have to develop under pres- sure," Pennington noted. "But today, they did a good job. C.J. (Rapoza), Abdul (Shaker), Emile (Caron), and Alex (Faford) all did a great job of blocking up front, and we have some good guys behind them who are run- ning the ball, so that helps." Defensively, N.S./Mount was led by senior linebacker Mike Paiva, who had an interception late in the first quarter that set up a 30-yard touch- down pass from Vowels to Camastro, and while that completion and TD pass were the first in Vowels' young career, the touchdown was also the first for Camastro, who is best known as one of the state's best kickers. Paiva also had a fumble recovery midway through the second quarter, which was forced by senior defensive N.S./Mount co-op squad shuts down Tiverton in opener Allard, defense key 36-0 victory; football team hosts Juanita Sanchez/PCD Friday By ERIC BENEVIDES Valley Breeze Sports Editor sports@valleybreeze.com See FOOTBALL, Page 11 BREEZE PHOTO BY ERIC BENEVIDES North Smithfield/ MSC sophomore defensive lineman ABDUL SHAKER, #68, forces Tiverton senior quarterback MIKE KEATING to fum- ble the ball during the opening quar- ter of last Friday's Division III opener on the Northmen's campus, which the hosts won by a 36-0 score.

If a product fails or causes injury, the manufacturer is usually considered to be at fault. This is where product liability insurance comes into play. As it is sometimes known, liability or third- party insurance provides an insured party with protection against claims resulting from injuries and damage to other people or property. It will cover any legal costs and payouts an insured party is responsible for if they are found legally liable. It does not, however, cover intentional or criminal acts. Liability insurance is often required for automotive insurance policies, product manufacturers, and anyone who practices medicine or law; essentially, anyone who can be sued for damages. A product liability policy is also crucial for construction and contracting businesses. It offers financial protection when a client sues over a personal injury or property damage related to your completed work. The cost of product liability insurance is usually included in your general liability insurance premiums. General liability costs are based mostly on your profession's risks and factors like the policy limits you choose. For more information, please call HUNTER INSURANCE, INC. at 769-9500. We are located at 389 Old River Rd., Lincoln. NOTE: Unlike other types of insurance, liability insurance policies pay third parties, not policy holders. PRODUCT LIABILITY INSURANCE
