Only one team was going to make the playoffs at the finish of Friday’s East Greenwich versus South Kingstown football game – the winner. The Avengers earned that spot with a strong 35-21 win over the Rebels.

“The boys played really well last night in a tough game,” said Coach John George Saturday. “Offensively Parke Hardesky threw for 263 yards and 2 touchdowns, Andrew Plympton had 115 yards receiving and Jack McMullen had 110 yards receiving and 4 touchdowns. The defense played exceptionally well once again, led by CJ Coppola, Keegan Leary, Mike Balsalmo, Curtis Browne, and Chad Coppola.”

EG faces Burrillville on Saturday.
