PAWTUCKET â€“ Pineview Big League skipper Joe Clark admitted his club didn't exhibit the kind of superb defense he expected from a lot of high school players in a 3-2 victory over East Greenwich on Tuesday night.
Sure, Clark and Co. won the game, but they looked rather shaky doing it.
That's why he chose to have a short conference with his young men prior to facing Edgewood/South Elmwood in the R.I. Big League (15-18) All-Star Tournament's winners-bracket final at the Doreen A. Tomlinson Athletic Complex' Presidents' Field on Friday night.
