Woonsocket's Soukhamthath concludes exceptional 2013 with seventh straight 'W', CES MMA record

December 8, 2013

LINCOLN --- Sometime tonight, Andre Soukhamthath and his family will finish packing their belongings and begin the long drive to Boca Raton, Fla. That’s 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 weekend’s “CES MMA XX” show at the Twin River Event Center.

City officials hoping to open ice rink Wednesday night

December 7, 2013

WOONSOCKET – If it’s been a few years since you’ve laced up a pair of skates and they’re just sitting in the attic gathering dust, Woonsocket Parks and Recreation Director Elizabeth Kerrigan will be more than glad to take them off your hands.

In anticipation of re-opening the city’s municipal ice skating rink at River Island Park, the Parks and Recreation Department is accepting donations of new and used ice skates to provide families that do not have skates the ability to still use the rink, which is free and open to the public.

Clippers' Stock following in older brother's footsteps

December 7, 2013

CUMBERLAND – Mike Stock was a mere sophomore backup tailback/safety as he watched Cumberland High, including standout senior brother Dan, throttle archrival Woonsocket, 49-0, in the R.I. Division II Super Bowl a December ago at East Greenwich's Nick Carcieri Field.

For the Clippers, it was their first state championship in decades.

Wizards' defense to test Clippers in Division II Super Bowl

December 7, 2013

WEST WARWICK – In some ways, the West Warwick squad that will serve as Cumberland’s final obstacle in the road to repeating as Division II champs looks awfully familiar.

Like the stout defense the 2012 Clippers rode en route to capturing the Super Bowl, the 2013 Wizards have proven successful in writing their own “shutting down the opposition” script. West Warwick will carry a nine-game winning streak into Sunday’s 3 p.m. title game at Cranston Stadium, an impressive stretch that has seen head coach Shane Lagor’s crew surrender 10.5 points per game.

December 6, 2013

WARWICK --- Lincoln picked up right where it left off last winter.

Owners of a magical 23-0-1 mark and the Division II championship a season ago, the Lions kicked off their title defense on the right foot on Friday night by topping the St. Raphael/Providence Country Day/Wheeler co-op team, 6-2, in their Division II-North opener at Thayer Arena.

It was a decent start to a promising year for the Lions, who graduated seven players from last season’s team and are carrying an 18-man roster that has a return trip to the finals at Brown University atop their wish list this winter.
