November 13, 2010

Northmen tune up for playoffs with easy win over C.F.

November 13, 2010

CENTRAL FALLS --- It was of North Smithfield High head coach Wes Pugh-Pennington's volition to treat his Division IV showdown against Central Falls High on Friday night as a road playoff game.
“Our plan was to keep it simple,” he stated. “We knew it was their Homecoming, so we wanted to use this as preparation for the playoffs. We knew we'd see a tough C.F. Team come in and play hard, so we wanted to run the ball, mix it up and gain some yardage. But we also wanted to prove that we're North Smithfield, we're no fluke, and that we come to play football.”

November 12, 2010

CRANSTON --- Defense is the main reason why Lincoln High captured the Division II-North title this year.
And if the Lions plan to seize the Division II state championship on Sunday afternoon, they are going to need the same excellent defense they displayed throughout the season and in Thursday night’s semifinal-round game against Mount St. Charles Academy.
Junior striker Jillian DeSimone scored her team-high 16th of the season and the Lions’ defense held off a furious second-half attack by the high-scoring Mounties en route to a 1-0 victory at Cranston Stadium.

November 12, 2010

CUMBERLAND — When Air National Guard Tech Sgt. Josh Lemois told his father he was giving up a chance to become a local policeman to go to Afghanistan, Bruce Lemois thought he understood.
He had to go.
Why else would Josh turn his back on his dream job?
“He wants to be a Cumberland police officer,” said Lemois, a member of the Cumberland Town Council. “Not a Warwick police officer. Not Providence. He wants to be a member of his hometown police department.”
