Novans reach Lynch Tournament finals

December 9, 2010

PAWTUCKET – It will be two former division rivals squaring off for Lynch Memorial Tournament supremacy come Saturday night.
Woonsocket fought back from a 48-42 deficit with less than three minutes remaining to post a 53-48 triumph over defending champion Central Falls Thursday night in opening round action at the Pawtucket Boys & Girls Club. Woonsocket will now take on St. Raphael, which ran past Providence Country Day, 71-45.

Bay View whips Woonsocket, 49-24

December 9, 2010

WOONSOCKET – The rematch proved to be no match.
The last time Woonsocket High faced Bay View Academy was in the Division I semifinals this past winter where the Villa Novans posted a 10-point victory en route to winning a state championship.
Eight months after the contest the two squads were back on the floor for a league opener at Savaria Gymnasium on Thursday night.
The final result wasn’t even close.
Bay View’s depth, grilling defense and overall intensity was just too much for the Villa Novans to handle as the Bengals earned their revenge in dominating fashion with a 49-24 victory.

Lincoln Giving Tree needs more gifts

December 9, 2010

LINCOLN — This time of year always concerns Dave Sale, not only Lincoln's Recycling Coordinator/Facilities Manager but also the one in charge of the town's special projects.
One such project is the Lincoln Holiday Basket Program, and a sub-section of that is “The Giving Tree.” That's where residents are asked to stop by Town Hall, pluck a tag with the gender and age of a needy child in town from a bulletin-type board, purchase an appropriate Christmas/holiday gift for him or her, then place it under the lavishly-decorated pine in the main foyer.

Red Sox 'team to beat' in 2011

December 9, 2010

Some things I think I think:
If you want to scare the daylights out of a Yankees fan, mention that A.J. Burnett might have a few problems dealing with Boston’s revised 2011 batting order. Now that the Red Sox have added lefty hitters Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to their lineup, sidearming right-handers like Burnett will be in big trouble against the Sox, who already have J.D. Drew and David Ortiz around as legitimate lefty power hitters.

Clippers lose league opener to St. Raphael

December 8, 2010

CUMBERLAND – Until about the midway point of Wednesday night’s Division I opener against host Cumberland, nothing seemed to fall for Diandra DaRosa.
But once the St. Raphael Academy sophomore got her shooting touch, there was no stopping her.
The talented point guard, who starred for Tolman last year, tossed in a game-high 29 points, including 22 in the second half as the Saints earned their first league win in nearly two years with a 61-51 victory over the Clippers at the Wellness Center.

Boston College survives PC's late rally

December 8, 2010

NEWTON, Mass. – For Providence College, it was a game that shouldn’t have come down to a close, but no cigar half-court heave by Vincent Council as the final horn sounded.
Closing hard and fast on Boston College in the final five minutes does not make up for 35 minutes of play in which PC struggled to generate any sort of traction on either end of the floor. The Eagles, who led 52-36 early in the second half and by a 72-60 count with 7:30 to play, tried to give the Friars an early Christmas present but were able to escape with an 88-86 win at Conte Forum Wednesday night.

Woonsocket girls host Bay View in Thursday's D-I opener

December 8, 2010

WOONSOCKET – After losing several valuable starters from last year’s state championship squad, Woonsocket High coach George Coderre considers this season a rebuilding year for his Division I squad and he’s not quite sure how his Villa Novans will respond against the upper-echelon of teams.
In terms of league-openers, Coderre couldn’t have asked for a better way to determine the makeup of his players when they take to the courts tonight. Facing the Villa Novans at Savaria Gymasium will be perennial power Bay View Academy.
