West beats East in Rhode Island Senior All-Star Game

by Jeff Fisher

The Providence Journal reports that Saturday’s night’s Rhode Island Football Coaches Association Senior all-Star Game ended on a “sour note” as officials ended the game with about three minutes to play because of a scuffle between players along the sidelines at the end of a play.

The West team was declared the winner 27-17. The West team was led by Mount Pleasant‘s Randolph Zleh, who scored two rushing touchdowns and intercepted a pass on defense. Zleh will attend North Dakota State in the fall.

As far as the stoppage, Chris Branch, head coach of Smithfield High and president of the coaches association, told the Providence Journal’s John Gillooly, “I’m very disappointed. This is a game that’s supposed to be fun then we have to end like this. This is not called for.”
