Champions! Davies belts Central for Div. III softball title

June 10, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Immediately after the Davies Tech team bus arrived at the Rhode Island College diamond at approximately 4:30 p.m., Sunday, skipper Scott Cooper strode up the aluminum stands to the press box for a coin flip with Central High's mentor, Michelle Rawcliffe.
That toss would decide the home team for this Rhode Island Division III Tournament championship series' “rubber” tilt.
When Rawcliffe chose “tails” and won the flip, choosing to bat in the bottom half of each inning, Cooper silently said a prayer.

WEST WARWICK — If there is a margin of separation between the Cumberland Clippers and the South Kingstown Rebels, it doesn’t appear to be a very big one.
Yesterday, behind a shutout pitched by Justin Patrick, the Clippers beat the Rebels 1-0 to send the series into a third game. In seven innings, Patrick gave up just two hits while striking out six batters with only one walk.
Cumberland’s head coach Paul Murphy could not have asked for more of his starter in a critical elimination game.
“He’s been absolutely fantastic in the playoffs,” Murphy said of Patrick.
