PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole didn’t stop high school football teams from taking the field Friday.

Schools around Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts shifted their start times to ensure the games could be played uninterrupted.

The matchup between West Warwick and Middletown was postponed to 6 p.m. Saturday due to the weather.

In this week’s Friday Night Blitz, 12 Sports’ Morey Hershgordon, Taylor Begley and Sam Knox bring you high school football scores, highlights and more from around Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts, including the Game of the Week: Bishop Hendricken vs. Central.
