The East Greenwich Avengers and the Middletown Cavaliers met on the field for a full uniform scrimmage game at Cranston Stadium today. Now, do you want the good news or the bad?
The good would be that it was the 50th anniversary of the first Rhode Island Super Bowl games, including the D2 game with EG vs. Middletown played at Brown U in 1972. Acting as official captains for the Avengers were, Fred Procopio, John Tober, Harold Dellahunt, and Scott Devinney.
Now for the bad. The Avengers lost this shortened (30 minute) game 21-0. Now granted this is a pre-season game, but it was a DI EG team playing a DII team.
It was obvious EG needs practice time. They have a week. The Avengers have a non-league game on Sept. 9th against Central, with their first league game on Sept 16th against Cumberland High.
