Northmen looking to build off last season's success

September 28, 2011

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Jen Brodeur had one of those seasons that doesn’t come around too often for a first-year coach.
Inheriting a strong nucleus of players from previous years, the North Smithfield coach watched her Northmen lose just one league match en route to capturing the Division III state championship.
Eight senior starters have since graduated from that squad. While she wouldn’t label it a rebuilding year, Brodeur wasn’t expecting a similar scenario this season.

September 28, 2011

Blame it on the rain? Tough early-season matchups? Injuries? Turnovers?
Whatever the reason, 70 percent of the Blackstone Valley’s teams that played last weekend lost, and four of those seven losing teams were badly beaten by 27 or more points.

WOONSOCKET — A freight train slammed into a car Wednesday after the driver mistakenly turned onto the River Street train tracks, thinking the rail bed was a street.
Christopher Hanlon, 28, was navigating with the aid of a GPS device, said Detective Lt. Eugene Jalette. The Coventry resident was heading toward Massachusetts on River Street, looking for Verry Street.
“His GPS said take the next right, so he took the next right, which turned out to be the railroad tracks,” said Jalette. “Verry Street is the first right after the railroad tracks.”
