Friday night RIIL Week 8 football scores and recaps
No. 16 Shea 20, Woonsocket 14

Bernard Parsons scored two touchdowns in Shea’s victory, putting the Raiders on the board with a 52-yard touchdown from Cam Seaver. Parsons added an 18-yard touchdown run in the third to give the Raiders a 14-6 lead, but Woonsocket quickly tied the game before Duarte won the game.
