PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — With the weather starting to get colder, it can only mean one thing: The playoff push is beginning to heat up in high school football.
This Friday’s game of the week features two teams battling for supremacy in Division II. Undefeated East Greenwich will be traveling to Lincoln to take on the 4-1 Lions.
In Division I-A, Bishop Hendricken (5-0) will look to remain perfect as they host a struggling Cranston East team looking to turn it around after a slow start.
La Salle will be visiting Portsmouth as the two 3-1 squads look to keep pace with Cranston West atop Division I-B.
Cranston West will try to hold on to their division lead with the 2-3 Barrington Eagles coming to town.
North Kingstown, the #2 team in the state media poll, will host St. Raphael, a team still battling for a playoff spot.
