Lions in good spirits after loss to powerful Mounties

January 6, 2013

WOONSOCKET — For a head coach whose squad had just fallen, 4-2, to mighty Mount St. Charles in a crossover tilt, Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op's Dick Ernst sure seemed in good spirits as he strolled out of an Adelard Arena team room on Saturday night.
Behind 4-0 entering the final session, the always-animated veteran mentor's Lions fought back with two goals in the span of 48 seconds midway through it.
“Our kids just didn't give up,” Ernst raved about his girls. “We trailed by four coming in, and the only thing I told the kids was to go out and win the third. Guess what? They did.”

Hockey Mounties searching for answers

January 6, 2013

WOONSOCKET — It wasn't so much the fact that Mount St. Charles dropped a 4-0 decision to defending state Division I champion Hendricken that irked head coach Dave Belisle to such a degree, but how.
The Mounties trailed the Hawks by a mere 1-0 count as the final seconds of the middle period drew to a close at Adelard Arena on Saturday night. The way Belisle figured it, all his guys needed to do was get into the locker room unscathed, then regroup, make adjustments and continue to storm the visitors' goalkeeper, senior Mitchell Proulx.
