Woonsocket drops field hockey opener to Classical

September 8, 2011

WOONSOCKET – During the final few minutes of the first half, Woonsocket High goalie Melinda Rice had to contend with a vicious attack by Classical.
But each shot, nearly a half dozen in that short span, Rice thwarted away with her stick or on a diving save.
That was just a sampling of the stellar effort by the talented senior in Thursday’s Division II clash at Barry Field. She finished her day’s work with 16 saves, most coming at close range.

Officiating crew grows to five with back judge

September 8, 2011

If Bruce Guindon and his high school football officiating brethren had their druthers, the installment of a fifth member to the longstanding four-man, on-field crew would have transpired years ago.
What was once a plea is now part of the Interscholastic League’s pigskin fabric. Beginning this season an additional pair of eyes will be called upon to aid specifically in the judgment of pass plays and blocks downfield, two areas that in the past have been tough calls a for group colloquially called “zebras” to accurately decipher.

One step at a time for PawSox manager Beyeler

September 7, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Arnie Beyeler had everything figured out – or so he believed prior to discussing his baseball career ambitions with Brad Mills a few years back during spring training.
At the time Beyeler was managing in Double-A Portland while Mills served as Terry Francona’s bench coach in Boston. One day the pair engaged in some casual chatter when the minor-league skipper revealed what he considered the pinnacle: coaching third base for a major league club.

PawSox playoff opener pushed back to Thursday night

September 7, 2011

ALLENTOWN, Pa. — A brief period of clearing skies provided some false hope that the PawSox may be able to play the opener of their Round One Governors’ Cup Series against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Unfortunately, the clearing skies disappeared and another heavy downpour forced the postponement of the game.
The series will now be pushed back by one day, with the opener being played Thursday night at 7:05 at Lehigh Valley. PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler will keep the same pitching rotation in effect, with Matt Fox (10-4, 3.96) going up against Dave Bush (1-2, 3.91) in the opener.

Alleged shooter surrenders to police

September 7, 2011

WOONSOCKET – The man who allegedly fired a gun at two people in a car, causing the summer's most dramatic bit of mayhem in the process, surrendered Wednesday morning after a weeks-long game of cat-and-mouse with the police.
Justin Menard, 25, whose last known address was on Fifth Avenue, had been on the lam since the July 14 incident on Robinson Street.
One of multiple rounds Menard allegedly fired passed through the windshield of the other vehicle and struck the driver, who crashed through a nearby house in attempts to escape the fusillade.
