WOONSOCKET --- The second period belonged to Mount St. Charles. So did the Mountiesâ€™ showdown with La Salle Academy on Friday night.
Zach Samborsky tallied a pair of goals during a high-scoring middle period that saw the Mounties light the lamp four times and eventually take off with a 7-2 win before one of the largest crowds of the season at Adelard Arena.
WARWICK â€“ Thatâ€™s one way to break out of a slump.
Senior Jessica Salisbury earned her first-ever hat trick and senior teammate Kayla Kiernan scored twice and also had three assists as North Smithfield cruised past the Warwick Lady Titans, 7-0, Friday night at Thayer Arena. The win snaps a four-game losing skid that began on New Yearâ€™s Day with a 4-1 setback to Division I co-leader Mount St. Charles Academy.
WOONSOCKET --- Outshooting a team by a overwhelming 57-7 margin is usually an ingredient to a blowout victory, but that wasnâ€™t the case on Friday night in Mount St. Charles Academyâ€™s big showdown for first place with La Salle Academy.
The Mounties fell victim to a 53-save performance by one of the stateâ€™s best netminders, junior Holly Scott, but were still able to skate away with a hard-fought 4-2 victory at Adelard Arena that kept them unbeaten at 8-0.
PAWTUCKET â€“ The long-running offseason production the PawSox put on, better known as the Hot Stove gathering, has always served a dual purpose.

When it comes to Woonsocket Highâ€™s boys basketball team, the old axiom of everyone loves a winner comes to mind. The flip side, as revealed this winter, is that very few people are willing to make the trip through snow and ice on a school night to watch this yearâ€™s 1-8 team play its home games.
LINCOLN â€” Even now, the portable rental marquee sign sitting in the snow outside the Christ Church Parish House reads, in part, â€śChristmas joy continues.â€ť
â€śWe haven't been able to change it because of the weather, the way it's been,â€ť chuckled Rev. Scott Gunn, the Episcopal church's rector for over three years now.
Fact is, neither Gunn nor his parishioners have had much to celebrate lately. Due to serious financial hardships, he has asked his congregation to vote on Jan 30 to accept a merger with Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Cumberland Hill.
