Central ends Northmen's season with 3-0 semifinal win

June 10, 2013

The Northmen held their own against the superb Knights, but bused home on the down side of a 3-1 verdict.

Still, the way North Smithfield battled in that 25-18, 25-14, 22-25, 25-14 defeat wasn't lost on Central head coach Donn Chu, who had warned his players prior to Monday night's R.I. Division II Tournament semifinal that their opponent would be dangerous, especially given its size advantage.
