Mount girls take 7-0 win over Burrillville/Ponaganset

December 24, 2011

WOONSOCKET -- The rematch was a mismatch.
Defending state champion Mount St. Charles, which saw its bid for a perfect regular season come up a game short when the Mounties lost their finale to the Burrillville/Ponaganset co-op team, got a bit of revenge for that defeat in Friday night’s showdown at Adelard Arena.
The Shea sisters, Allison and Caitlin, and Marissa Heroux each scored a pair of goals for Mount in a surprisingly-lopsided 7-0 triumph over the Broncos, a game the hosts dominated from start to finish.

Evangelista, Northmen girls shut down Lions, 4-0

December 23, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- She didn’t have to turn in the same remarkable effort she did in her 58-save performance against Mount St. Charles last weekend, but Britney Evangelista was still outstanding in net for North Smithfield in Friday night’s meeting with Lincoln.
The sophomore netminder turned away 32 shots and frustrated one of the top lines in the state to help the Northmen claim a 4-0 triumph over the first-year Lions at Adelard Arena and snap a five-game losing streak.

Bruce: City inches closer to financial crisis

December 23, 2011

WOONSOCKET – The city moved a step deeper into fiscal crisis this week as Fitch Ratings placed the city’s $118 million portfolio of general obligation bonds on negative watch status.
Finance Director Tom Bruce said the status shift almost certainly means that Fitch will downgrade the city’s bond rating and that Moody’s Investor Service will likely follow suit.
At this point, Bruce said it’s probably inevitable that the state will call for increased oversight of the city’s fiscal affairs – the only question is how much.

Fugere nets 1,000th point in Novans' loss to Eagles

December 22, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Turnovers will hurt you.
When you do it against an evenly-matched team, it will often be the difference in the game.
Woonsocket High committed more than its share of mental miscues on Thursday night and suffered its first loss of the season, convincingly, as visiting Barrington left Savaria Gymnasium with a 51-32 victory in an intense Division I contest. The Eagles work underneath the basket on both ends of the court was particularly troublesome for the Villa Novans.

'Blessings' are good for the body and soul

December 22, 2011

CUMBERLAND – As the saying goes, giving is its own reward. But at Mt. St. Rita Health Centre, they’ve figured out a way to double the reward.
It’s called Blessings in a Backpack, a program that provides needy children from Woonsocket with food for the weekend – when they can’t get a meal in school.
Once a week, a group of volunteers at the nursing home and rehab facility stuff backpacks with cans of tuna, applesauce and other treats – enough to bridge the gap between Fridays and Mondays. But it’s no ordinary group of volunteers.
