WARWICK (WPRI) – Pilgrim is coming off an 0-2 spring season in Divsion II-B, but the team has already shown improvement this fall. The Patriots narrowly defeated East Greenwich on Friday in the Injury Fund game. East Greenwich is a quality opponent, coming off a Division I Super Bowl appearance.
The Patriots are building off a spring season that allowed younger players to gain some experience.
“Guys look great, I mean, we worked out all summer. We were going twice a week for nine weeks as soon as the school year ended, so a lot of these young guys that got to play in the spring, they got a lot of playing time and they’re picking up everything really quickly,” said head coach Blake Simpson.
“The biggest thing is, this year, the new team has a year under its belt and we’re definitely more experienced and built chemistry more,” said senior quarterback Connor Widmer. “We’re definitely going to be a stronger team”
