BURRILLVILLE â€” The rematch featured little suspense.
In fact, you could say other than a brief flurry by North Smithfield late in the first half, Burrillville was the hoops outfit in complete control.
BURRILLVILLE â€” Despite Cumberland Highâ€™s amazing run so far this season, North Smithfield refused to be intimidated in a huge Division II-North clash on Friday night.
Head coach Paul Nadeauâ€™s Northmen skated with authority, played with heart and desire for a full 45 minutes and gave the unbeaten Clippers a scare.
In the end, however, junior winger and tri-captain Greg Wellington by his lonesome found the net more often than the hosts as Cumberland strolled out of Levy Arena with a 3-1 triumph.

CENTRAL FALLS â€” The last time Central Falls and Cumberland met on a basketball court, just nine days ago, the Clippers upset the Warriors on their home court on a late hoop by freshman Brandon Kolek.
When the two teams met again Friday night on the same court in a Division II playoff opener, the Warriors made sure there would be no late heroics by Cumberland. Central Falls held a 49-44 lead with nine minutes left before going on a 7-0 run that put the game away.
WOONSOCKET â€“ The fourth time proved to be the charm for Detective Capt. Edward J. Lee Jr.
After coming close to landing a chief's job in three other Massachusetts towns in the past year or so, the Woonsocket police veteran hit paydirt in Hopkinton late Thursday, as the Board of Selectmen voted 5-0 to put Lee at the helm of its police force.
"It's exciting," Lee said Friday morning. "We've got to get ready for the Boston Marathon now."
