LINCOLN â€“ Jillian DeSimone stood anxiously on the rain-soaked Ferguson Field sidelines, her teamâ€™s perfect season hanging in the balance.
If ever there was a time for Lincoln High to prove it was more than a one-player show, this was it.
Playing without DeSimone for most of the second half after the stateâ€™s leading goal scorer picked up her yellow card of the game, the Lions rode Ashley Moreauâ€™s five goals and Nina Fournierâ€™s goalkeeping to a 12-9 victory over Cumberland High School on Monday.
Some things I think I think:
It didnâ€™t take long for the Boston Red Sox to climb out of that impossible hole all the doomsayers had put them in after they started the season with two wins in their first 12 games. After Sunday nightâ€™s win over the Cubs, Bostonâ€™s record stood at 25-21 and the Sox were just one-half game out of first place in the American League East.
LINCOLN â€” A Manville woman died tragically Friday evening when a tree limb being cut by her husband struck her in the head, apparently killing her instantly.
Police responded to a home on Elm Street at 8:06 p.m. after receiving a report of a domestic accident. Lt. Joseph Conti and Patrolman Walter Ptaszek stated the man had asked his wife to hold a rope attached to a limb so that, once it was cut, she could lower it to the ground gently.
When Jarrod and Cindy Wellsâ€™ first child was born three years ago, the young coupleâ€™s lives took a turn down a figurative path they never expected to be walking.
Now, the Bellingham natives are founders and organizers of an actual walk that will raise money for research on the condition that redirected their focus: Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Their daughter, Madylin, is the one in 16,000 newborns diagnosed with the birth defect, a complex syndrome resulting from a chromosomal abnormality.
