WOONSOCKET â€” For a head coach whose squad had just fallen, 4-2, to mighty Mount St. Charles in a crossover tilt, Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op's Dick Ernst sure seemed in good spirits as he strolled out of an Adelard Arena team room on Saturday night.
Behind 4-0 entering the final session, the always-animated veteran mentor's Lions fought back with two goals in the span of 48 seconds midway through it.
â€śOur kids just didn't give up,â€ť Ernst raved about his girls. â€śWe trailed by four coming in, and the only thing I told the kids was to go out and win the third. Guess what? They did.â€ť
WOONSOCKET â€” It wasn't so much the fact that Mount St. Charles dropped a 4-0 decision to defending state Division I champion Hendricken that irked head coach Dave Belisle to such a degree, but how.
The Mounties trailed the Hawks by a mere 1-0 count as the final seconds of the middle period drew to a close at Adelard Arena on Saturday night. The way Belisle figured it, all his guys needed to do was get into the locker room unscathed, then regroup, make adjustments and continue to storm the visitors' goalkeeper, senior Mitchell Proulx.
WOONSOCKET â€” The deep of winter has arrived and along with it the Museum of Work & Culture's popular Ranger Day lecture series on both local and national topics of interest.
The annual lecture series sponsored by the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor and the Rhode Island Historical Society is a great way to spend a winter Sunday afternoon, according to Raymond H. Bacon, museum co-manager.
CUMBERLAND â€” Kids and young adults love to see snow falling during the winter because it can result in lots of fun on local sledding runs.
But as the sledding tragedy in Providence showed all too clearly last Wednesday, sledding in the wrong spot or in icy conditions can be very dangerous and even result in fatal injury.
The sledding accident at Neutaconkanut Hill Park in Providence that claimed the life of Alexandria Alvarez, 17, sparked safety reviews of many popular sledding spots around the state and the closing of the Neutaconkanut Hill at least until surface conditions improve.
