BALDWINVILLE — Not bad for starters.

Narragansett senior quarterback Damian Comeau completed 17 of his 20 pass attempts to eight different receivers, as the Warriors picked apart the visiting Pioneers of Southbridge High, 42-20, in the opener for both teams on Friday at Arthur L. Stuart Memorial Field.

Truthfully, the game wasn’t even that close as the visitors from Southern Worcester County gained 130 of their 203 yards of total offense on just four plays and were basically shut down the rest of the night.

The ’Gansett offense clicked early on as well as Comeau found nothing but open targets against the Southbridge defense, firing a pair of TD tosses to Sammy Tourigny and one to Jake Lajoie for a dominating 35-12 lead by halftime.

Tourigny and Lajoie combined for nine catches and 163 yards, but there were plenty of footballs to go around as Shea Sullivan, Tyler Richards, Ryan Mattson, Josh Duval, Matt Corbiel and Bearett Henderson all added receptions of their own for the Warriors.

“Early on they wanted to play man with no safety help and we saw it scouting them and we were hoping they’d come out like that and they did,” said ’Gansett head coach Wes Flis. “They were stacking the box with six or seven guys to stop the run and we just had to throw the ball. Obviously with Damian and our receivers we thought we had mismatches and we did.

“Our guys did a nice job running their routes and they kind of had to choose their poison,” he continued, “so it was good to see a lot of guys like Sammy, Jake, all those guys, Ty Rich, Shea had his first catch ever as a senior so a lot of guys got their hands on the ball which was nice to see. A lot of guys made some plays out there so it was fun.”

The two teams traded three-and-outs before the Warriors went ahead for good midway through the opening quarter. Comeau connected with Richards, Mattson and Lajoie before finally hitting Tourigny on a 10-yard TD pass. Comeau added the kick for an early 7-0 lead.

Southbridge fumbled the ball away on the very next play from scrimmage and Comeau made it back-to-back TD tosses when Lajoie slipped his coverage and found himself wide open for a 20-yard scoring play and a 14-0 ’Gansett lead after Comeau’s extra point.

The Pioneers scored a pair of touchdowns on their own in the first half and did so despite facing third-and-long situations on both scoring drives. Each time it was quarterback John Cortez finding Marcos Rosado up the seam for plays that covered 27 and 22 yards, respectively. Benard Amponsah ran in the first score of the season for Southbridge with 17 seconds remaining in the first quarter and Rosado reeled in an 18-yard TD pass from Cortez with 6:24 left to play in the first half to keep the visitors in the game early on.

“I know they hit a couple seam passes and those were just coverage breakdowns,” Flis said. “We’ve just got to keep working on that stuff and it’s funny because in the preseason we played a lot of teams that ran similar stuff and we did a great job against it. For some reason they just kind of caught us off guard, that’s all it was, but we did a little better job playing man coverage than we played zone.”

The big plays by the Pioneers and the ensuing touchdowns did little to slow down the Warriors, however, as Comeau found Tourigny deep for a 53-yard TD pass just 18 seconds after Rosado’s score. Comeau faked a short slant pass to Tourigny before the latter sprung free wide open down the right side.

’Gansett tacked on another touchdown before the first half was over on a 2-yard run by Comeau for a commanding 35-12 lead by halftime.

The Warriors’ sixth and final touchdown came in the middle of the third quarter when Comeau snuck it in from a yard away. Comeau made it a perfect six-for-six on extra points for a 42-12 lead.

Southbridge completed the scoring on a 63-yard run and two-point rush by Carlos Miranda against ’Gansett’s second unit early in the fourth quarter.

“I’m proud of the way our guys came out. They were ready,” said Flis. “These guys were chomping at the bit and it was tough to keep them harnessed before they came out to play.”

Besides completing 85 percent of his pass attempts, Comeau threw for 246 yards, completed three TD passes and ran in two more. Corbiel was the leading rusher for the Warriors with 28 yards on seven carries.

Next up for ’Gansett is longtime rival West Boylston next Friday night back at Stuart Field. The Warriors once dominated the all-time series against the Lions, but have dropped the last four meetings, including shutout losses of 41-0 and 30-0 the last two seasons.

“They’ve had our number the last few years and we were talking to our guys about taking care of the next win and that’s what we keep talking about,” Flis said. “We’ve got to get the next one and that’s the big thing.”
