WOONSOCKET â€“ Bethany Marslandâ€™s love affair with Champâ€™s began when she was barely tall enough to see above the counter of the historic dining car.
As a little girl, she remembers telling the brothers who ran the place, Roger and Gerry Champagne, that she wanted a restaurant just like theirs when she grew up.
â€śI loved it,â€ť she says. â€śMy mother used to take me there forever, for as long as Roger and Gerry had the place.â€ť
The proprietor of a long string of successful restaurants in the city over the years, Marsland is about to open another. But it wonâ€™t be like Champâ€™s.
BURRILLVILLE -- For Burrillville High, Saturday’s easier-than-anticipated 28-7 Division IV triumph over gritty Smithfield gave it a couple of firsts, at least when it comes to recent history.
WOONSOCKET – Momodou Mbaye and his Shea High teammates were in a festive mood after dominating Woonsocket, 20-6, Saturday at cold and rain-swept Barry Field.
PROVIDENCE – Ed Cooley freely admits that he has not settled on a concrete starting five. Luckily for the Providence College coach, the regular season doesn’t tip off for another two weeks.
Three-fifths of the lineup appears set with LaDontae Henton, Carson Desrosiers and Tyler Harris making up the frontcourt. Based on Cooley’s optimism with regards to Kris Dunn’s quest to ramp up to game speed after a lengthy layoff, it’s appears safe to mention the redshirt sophomore in a starting capacity.
WOONSOCKET â€“ A Providence County grand jury has indicted a city man on 10 charges stemming from a one-day crime spree that allegedly included an attempted home invasion, a police pursuit and a carjacking during which he shot a man in the foot.
EAST GREENWICH – Cumberland High head coach Stefanie Capone-Bello didn’t have to give her contingent a history lesson prior to its R.I. Division II Tournament contest with Chariho Regional on Thursday evening, but chose to anyway.
NEWPORT – Rogers High exploded for three goals in the opening session and cruised past pesky Woonsocket, 4-1, in a R.I. Division III Tournament preliminary clash on Thursday.
Amazingly, Sarah Morris managed a hat trick in that first half alone before manufacturing another unassisted tally in the last.
Juliana DiMeglio also helped out the Vikings (now 11-2-2 overall) with three saves, while Sabrina Dubois earned seven in the defeat.
