BELLINGHAM -- Brian Bender, the owner of Dennyâs Liquors, hasnât been so excited since Coors crossed the Mississippi.
After an absence of more than 20 years, Yuengling beer returns to package stores in the Bay State today, offering Rhode Island beer lovers yet another reason to spend their money on the other side of the state line.
âThis is big,â says Bender, whose store is a few hundred yards over the Woonsocket line. âI havenât seen demand like this since Coors came East.â
PROVIDENCE â When Lincoln High senior Alex D'Aloisio awoke on Saturday morning, he didn't feel that well. He figured it was probably just nerves, as he was about to attempt to claim a second-straight title at the R.I. Interscholastic Wrestling Championships.
âOnce I got here (to the Providence Career & Technical Academy field house), I started to feel it in my gut; I was kind out of it,â he confessed.

PAWTUCKET â This is what great sports rivalries are all about: Anything Lincoln can do, Cumberland wants to do it better. Even if the difference between these two outstanding hockey teams is nearly negligible, the Clippers want to outdo their neighborhood rivals on the ice.
WOONSOCKET â It was fitting that Carol Nasuti was the final speaker on an afternoon that saw many people flock to the high schoolâs Saravia Gymnasium to remember the life of her late husband, George T. Nasuti.
With her oldest son Chris standing by her side on a maroon-colored podium that was decorated with maroon and white balloons â on top of this neat arrangement were two balloons with the same quote on each: âForever in our heartsâ â Carol showed the audience the pages of notes she was prepared to read from. She then pointed out that there was a problem.
WARWICK --- This wasnât Game 3 of the best-of-three state championship series at Brown University, but Mount St. Charles and Bishop Hendricken did their best to help duplicate that atmosphere in their regular-season finale on Saturday night at Thayer Arena.
Playing in front of a packed house, the Mounties and Hawks hooked up in a fast-paced, tight-checking duel that contained just one penalty and very few shots and mistakes by either side.
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 Highâs 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 Nadeauâs 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.
