Wrap-up of 2015 Rhode Island football championships

RIIL

Bishop Hendricken beat La Salle Academy 24-20 to win the school’s sixth straight Division I Rhode Island high school football championship.

Hendricken battled back from two deficits and Matt DiTondo’s 17 yard TD run with eight minutes to go in the game was the winning score in Division I Super Bowl.  The championship game was much closer than the regular season game between the two that was won by Bishop Hendricken by 30 points.

In Division II, Moses Brown won its second straight title with a 40-0 shutout of St. Raphael.  Sophomore running back Tyler Pereira scored three touchdowns in the win.

East Greenwich beat Classical 31-6 for the Division III championship.  Senior QB Nick Andreozzi ran for two touchdowns and threw for one in the win.  East Greenwich finished a perfect 10-0.

In the Division IV final, Smithfield (10-0) also closed-out a perfect season with a 35-20 win over Burrillville.  It was Smithfield’s first-ever football state championship.
