PROVIDENCE â€“The battle of unbeaten Northern Division powers proved to be no contest.
With victories in eight different events, including 1-2-3 sweeps in the 55-meter high hurdles and the 1,000, Cumberland High earned its eighth consecutive undefeated league season with a 64-45 win over previously-perfect Lincoln. The Clippers (8-0) and Lions (7-1) both defeated Mount St. Charles (4-4) in the tri meet, held at the Providence Athletic Facility (PAF).
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ The town's new municipal court has been up and running since September and, so far, it's doing everything town officials had hoped it would, including reaping new revenue and accelerating the legal process for disposition of violations.
In a second quarterly report released this week by court administrator and police Capt. Thomas R. Lafleur, more than $17,000 in revenue was generated by the court, with a net revenue amount for the town standing at nearly $10,000.

WOONSOCKET --- The second period belonged to Mount St. Charles. So did the Mountiesâ€™ showdown with La Salle Academy on Friday night.
Zach Samborsky tallied a pair of goals during a high-scoring middle period that saw the Mounties light the lamp four times and eventually take off with a 7-2 win before one of the largest crowds of the season at Adelard Arena.
WARWICK â€“ Thatâ€™s one way to break out of a slump.
Senior Jessica Salisbury earned her first-ever hat trick and senior teammate Kayla Kiernan scored twice and also had three assists as North Smithfield cruised past the Warwick Lady Titans, 7-0, Friday night at Thayer Arena. The win snaps a four-game losing skid that began on New Yearâ€™s Day with a 4-1 setback to Division I co-leader Mount St. Charles Academy.
WOONSOCKET --- Outshooting a team by a overwhelming 57-7 margin is usually an ingredient to a blowout victory, but that wasnâ€™t the case on Friday night in Mount St. Charles Academyâ€™s big showdown for first place with La Salle Academy.
The Mounties fell victim to a 53-save performance by one of the stateâ€™s best netminders, junior Holly Scott, but were still able to skate away with a hard-fought 4-2 victory at Adelard Arena that kept them unbeaten at 8-0.
PAWTUCKET â€“ The long-running offseason production the PawSox put on, better known as the Hot Stove gathering, has always served a dual purpose.
