PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — As we get closer to the high school football playoffs, each game becomes increasingly important. This week, a number of divisional matchups could impact the seeding.
Our game of the week has undefeated Narragansett hosting undefeated Pilgrim in a battle for the top spot in Division III.
In Division I-A, 6-0 Bishop Hendricken will look to continue their march toward another perfect season as they take on 4-2 Shea at home. Sandwiched between them in the standings is 5-1 North Kingstown, who on Friday faces winless Cranston East.
Also at 5-1, Cranston West will try to hold on to the top spot in Division I-B with East Providence coming to town. Sitting alongside the Falcons is 5-1 Portsmouth, who plays on Saturday against 0-6 Moses Brown.
Meanwhile, 4-2 La Salle will look to bounce back from last week’s loss to Cranston West and remain in the playoff hunt when they host 3-4 Barrington.
In Division IV, 4-2 Ponaganset has a chance to make up ground on undefeated and division-leading North Smithfield.
