TIVERTON — Tiverton’s football team endured a disappointing home opener Saturday when East Greenwich handed the Tigers a 28-6 loss.
The matchup of Division III teams was close for awhile as Tiverton held East Greenwich to a single touchdown and trailed just 7-0. Still, Tiverton’s offense had few answers for a powerful East Greenwich defensive front line.
But in the second half, East Greenwich let loose with 21 more points — two touchdowns in the third quarter and one in the fourth quarter.
Tiverton’s offensive highlight of the morning came when Robert Kiser III broke free for a 15-yard touchdown run with 4:54 left in the third quarter to cut the East Greenwich lead to 21-6.
