CRANSTON â The expression goes, âif itâs not broke, donât fix it.â
In all honesty, there was very little reason for West Warwick to stray from the defensive scheme that had proven most successful in the Wizardsâ 14-0 regular-season victory over Cumberland. The blueprint on how to contain and/or slow down Tyler Calabro, Chris Hayes, Joe Fine, Mike Stock and the rest of the Clippersâ offense had been established, hence why Wizards defensive coordinator Chris Craik likely didnât have to endure too many restless nights leading up to Sundayâs Division II Super Bowl contest at Cranston Stadium.
LINCOLN â Eddie and Patty Fox had been familiar with Wreaths Across America's (WAA) work over the years to recognize the courage and sacrifices of U.S. veterans during the holidays, but it wasn't until about two years ago that the couple began to think about how their hometown of Lincoln could assist the WAA's mission.
The Fox's were the driving force behind the effort in 2011 to raise money for a Vietnam Veterans Memorial in town, which was dedicated at the Lincoln Senior Center on May 21 of that year. "It was a huge ceremony and over 400 people attended," says Patty.
CRANSTON â Cumberland High senior tackle Ricky Goodreau's response to what had just transpired at Cranston Stadium summed up his teamâs collective mood early Sunday evening, as he walked slowly away from the post-game huddle near midfield with tears in his eyes, then raised his helmet with his right hand and knocked it softly against his forehead.
LINCOLN --- Sometime tonight, Andre Soukhamthath and his family will finish packing their belongings and begin the long drive to Boca Raton, Fla. Thatâs where they will move so the Woonsocket bantamweight can train full-time with the multi-talented Blackzilians combat team.
But before setting his sights on his future, Soukhamthath made sure that he took care of the present and concluded one of the greatest years by a Rhode Island MMA fighter with a magnificent performance in the co-feature of this past weekendâs âCES MMA XXâ show at the Twin River Event Center.
