La Salle plays MA power Catholic Memorial in high school football

La Salle coach Geoff Marcone explains a play to members of his football last season.  On Friday night, the Rams hosted the Massachusetts Catholic Memorial.

PROVIDENCE – Opposition from the Interscholastic League gave Catholic Memorial two of its toughest tests during an undefeated 2021 season.

La Salle and Bishop Hendricken powered the Knights on their way to a Division 2 Super Bowl title in Massachusetts. A host of future FBS talent had a better time with King Philip at Gillette Stadium as the Knights clinched their first championship in more than four decades.

Friday night’s opening crack of the twin powerhouses of Rhode Island fell short at Cimini Stadium. The Rams trailed after the first two minutes and never found their rhythm in a 47-7 loss.

Jared Gibbons broke up a 9-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to help La Salle avoid a shutout. The clock was ticking down the second half with Catholic Memorial enjoying a 41-0 halftime lead.
