The inaugural Capital City All-Star football game was held on Saturday night at Providence’s Conley Stadium, and a number of players from Cranston East took the field.
The game, which was originally scheduled for Friday but had to be moved due to rain, pitted players from Central, Mt. Pleasant, North Providence and North Smithfield against players from Classical, Cranston East, Hope, PCD and Wheeler, and it was a chance for many high schoolers to play one final game.
The Central/MP/NP/NS team came out on top 14-7, and Central’s Mike Washington was named the team’s MVP, as he scored the first touchdown of the game. For the other team, East’s Nate Isom was named MVP after scoring the only touchdown for his side.
The game was played in front of a big crowd and will be aired on Cox Channel 3 at some point over the weekend, with local sports personality Scott Cordischi handling the play-by-play duties.
Proceeds from the game went to the Providence City athletic departments.
