LINCOLN --â€“ Lacrosse is a game where goals are often scored in large numbers and multiple tallies by any one individual is not uncommon.
But for Lincoln High junior Jillian DeSimone this spring, it just may be bordering on the ridiculous.
DeSimone has averaged more than eight goals per outing in nine league games for the Lions in Division II. On Wednesday, it was status quo for the high-scoring attack as she netted 10 scores â€“ all coming in the first half â€“ to lift the unbeaten Lions to a rather routine 22-13 decision over North Providence at Ferguson Field.
WOONSOCKET --- Mount St. Charles Academy turned in its worst performance of the year on Wednesday night, but luckily for the Mounties, they didnâ€™t pay for it in the win column.
East Providence High, which is fielding one of its youngest teams in recent memory, did its best to take advantage of the Mountiesâ€™ poor play and bus out of Woonsocket with an upset win. But the Mounties did just enough to claim this Division I matchup by a 3-1 score.
WOONSOCKET â€” A Superior Court lawsuit that prevented CVS/Caremark from building a new flagship store in Chipman's Corner has been decided in favor of the homegrown pharmacy giant, ending a legal battle that's lasted nearly three years.
