Thanksgiving Day game goes to the Cumberland Clippers

Cumberland Clippers defeat Woonsocket Villa Novans 35 to 6.

The Cumberland High School Clippers once again took home the yearly Thanksgiving game trophy after dominating the Woonsocket Villa Novans.

After taking a four touchdown lead in the first quarter alone, the Clippers' defense kept the struggling home team deep within their own endzone for the entirety of the first half, earning themselves a massive lead of 34 to 0 before halftime.

Once they regained the field, the Villa Novans returned with renewed vigor, surrendering only a 1 point safety. However, no matter how Woonsocket dominated the ball in the final half, they still struggled against the Clippers' defense. The Villa Novans' only score came in the final seconds of the game, making the final score 35-6 for Cumberland.

The game's sportsmanship awards were given this year to Cumberland's Richard Jackvony and Woonsocket's Zachary LaSalle.
