The Avengers near-perfect football season came to an end at Cranston Stadium Sunday with a loss to the Woonsocket Villa Novans, 37-13, in the DII State Championship. While it was a tough day for the Avengers, for Novan Emmanuel Gomes, who was named the game’s MVP, it meant something extra. His mother died of a heart attack while in the stands during a game earlier in the season.
The win, he said, “It’s for my mom.”
Thanks to the Avengers for a great season and to Mary MacIntosh for sharing her photos each week!
