Burrillville tamed by Barrington in 1-0 nail-biter in Game 1 of Division I finals

March 15, 2013

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 o’clock.

Lincoln claw past Prout in 3-2 thriller in opener of Div. II hockey finals

March 15, 2013

PROVIDENCE – Lincoln High wasn’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.
