Skippers rocked by Cranston West

September 30, 2011

CRANSTON - For one full quarter, the North Kingstown football team played great.
The rest of the game didn't go as well.
After tying No. 2 Cranston West after one quarter of play and stopping the Falcons on the one, things fell apart for the Skippers in a 47-7 loss Friday night.
The highlight of the night for NK was a nine-play, 66-yard drive that started with a beautiful 19-yard reverse by receiver Alex Young and ended with a 15-yard touchdown pass by Jacob Morris to Alex Madioan. James Chamberlain's kick made it 7-7 with 2:51 left in the first quarter.
