CUMBERLAND â€“ Students at Cumberland High School on Friday had Aydan Nyberg in their hearts â€“ and on their sleeves.
Aydan, an eight-year-old student of the Cumberland Hill Elementary School, has been battling cancer since age 3 and has inspired the school to show support for him in a variety of ways, including wearing orange-colored clothing -- because orange is his favorite color -- and holding a number of fundraising projects.
PROVIDENCE â€” Whatever Mount St. Charles head coach Dave Belisle told his kids in the dressing room after the second period, it worked wonders.
Or is that an understatement?

PROVIDENCE â€“ Though their two teams went a combined 8-24-3 in league play this season, Burrillville and Barrington put on a championship-caliber show Thursday night.
In a contest that went down to the wire, the Eagles got a third-period goal from Michael Lombardi and came up with a huge defensive stand in a frenzied final minute to win Game 1 of the Division I finals, 1-0, at Brown Universityâ€™s Meehan Auditorium. The Broncos will try to push the best-of-three series to a decisive third game when the two teams reconvene Saturday afternoon at 4 oâ€™clock.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Lincoln High wasnâ€™t at its best against the Prout School on Thursday night.
Not only did the Lions go 0-for-4 on the power play for the game, but during their last man advantage with less than six minutes left, it not only failed to capitalize, but yielded the Crusaders a shorthanded goal.
But thanks largely to the play of sophomore goalie Chris Leclaire and his 28 stunning saves, the Lions survived with a 3-2 verdict over Prout in the initial game of this best-of-three R.I. Division II Tournament championship series at Brown University's Meehan Auditorium.
