Lady Novans outlast SRA, 41-36

January 27, 2012

WOONSOCKET – On a night in which she was honored for scoring her 1,000 career point earlier this season, senior Kailey Fugere and the rest of her Woonsocket High teammates cooled off a resurging St. Raphael Academy program Friday night with a 41-36 decision at Savaria Gymnasium.
Fugere, who was recognized for her milestone during a halftime ceremony, finished with 17 points. The game was hardly the Villa Novans best effort, however, as St. Ray’s overcame a 14-point deficit before the break and made their host sweat it out until the final buzzer.

Lincoln ices Cumberland, 6-2

January 26, 2012

PAWTUCKET --- The fans who packed Lynch Arena on Thursday hoping to see a tight game between Lincoln and Cumberland that resembled the double-overtime thriller they played in the Toll Gate Holiday Tournament finals didn’t get their wish granted.
The Lions erupted for three goals in the second period and two in the first 5½ minutes of the third and held the Clippers to just 19 shots on net en route to a 6-2 win in the Kyle J. McLaughlin Scholarship Fund benefit hockey game.

LINCOLN – Head coach Tom Diiorio doesn’t care too much about dual-meet records. When it comes to his Lincoln High boys’ and girls’ teams, his main concern is that his athletes are swimming well with a fair share of them qualifying for next month’s state championships.
Both those objectives are being met this season.

More troubles for D-III hockey teams

January 26, 2012

If the shaky futures of the Tolman and Woonsocket hockey teams didn’t need to receive any additional bad news, they indirectly got some at Monday night’s meeting of the R.I. Interscholastic League’s Principals’ Committee on Athletics in Providence.
Among the developments that transpired during this session was the matter of extending the periods in Division III, as well as girls’ hockey, from 12 to 15 minutes. This was put to a vote and narrowly (and surprisingly) approved by a 6-to-5 vote.
