WOONSOCKET â€“ Scott Colantonio had the look of frustration during the first half of Thursdayâ€™s Division III-North encounter with North Smithfield. The Mount St. Charles coach wasnâ€™t upset with the play of his team, but just the fact that the shots simply werenâ€™t falling.
The second half was a different story.
The Mounties shots found the net and their defensive intensity also picked up as they erased a fiveâ€“point deficit at the break to earn a hard-fought 48-42 victory over the Northmen on their home court. In a well-balanced scoring attack, Pat McCarthy led Mount with 10 points.
