Mounties rout Lions, 9-1

December 11, 2010

WARWICK — Mount St. Charles continued its early-season success Saturday night at Thayer Arena with a 9-1 triumph over a Lincoln squad that’s still finding out what life in the state’s top division is all about. This season saw the Lions jump to Division I after competing the last several years in the now-defunct I-A circuit.
Only a power play goal from Lincoln’s William Nesbitt late in the third period prevented MSC from posting its third consecutive shutout. Michael Magerman and Alex Erban supplied the firepower for the Mounties, each player recording a hat trick.

PROVIDENCE — It’s very good to be Marshon Brooks these days.
To the Providence College senior, the basket must seem as large and as inviting as Narragansett Bay on a summer’s day. The prodigious scoring outputs are quickly becoming a regular feature, as Saturday saw Brooks once again torch the strings with great frequency.

Tenants escape Rebekah Street blaze

December 11, 2010

WOONSOCKET – Roland Adams lost his home Friday afternoon but knows he could have lost much more had it not been for a wired fire alarm system in a five-family apartment building at 97 Rebekah Street.
“Everyone got out so it could have been a lot worse,” Adams said while watching city firefighters working inside the fire-damaged building after they knocked down flames erupting from a back second-floor apartment.

Chieftains edge Northmen, 4-3

December 11, 2010

SMITHFIELD — North Smithfield coach Paul Nadeau knows the wins are not going to come easy.
After enduring some success in Division III the last few years, including capturing a state crown in 2005-06, the Northmen made the jump to Div. II this year. Nadeau is realistic at what he expects from his squad in the faster and more-talented division.

Bay View whips Woonsocket, 49-24

December 9, 2010

WOONSOCKET – The rematch proved to be no match.
The last time Woonsocket High faced Bay View Academy was in the Division I semifinals this past winter where the Villa Novans posted a 10-point victory en route to winning a state championship.
Eight months after the contest the two squads were back on the floor for a league opener at Savaria Gymnasium on Thursday night.
The final result wasn’t even close.
Bay View’s depth, grilling defense and overall intensity was just too much for the Villa Novans to handle as the Bengals earned their revenge in dominating fashion with a 49-24 victory.

Lincoln Giving Tree needs more gifts

December 9, 2010

LINCOLN — This time of year always concerns Dave Sale, not only Lincoln's Recycling Coordinator/Facilities Manager but also the one in charge of the town's special projects.
One such project is the Lincoln Holiday Basket Program, and a sub-section of that is “The Giving Tree.” That's where residents are asked to stop by Town Hall, pluck a tag with the gender and age of a needy child in town from a bulletin-type board, purchase an appropriate Christmas/holiday gift for him or her, then place it under the lavishly-decorated pine in the main foyer.

Red Sox 'team to beat' in 2011

December 9, 2010

Some things I think I think:
If you want to scare the daylights out of a Yankees fan, mention that A.J. Burnett might have a few problems dealing with Boston’s revised 2011 batting order. Now that the Red Sox have added lefty hitters Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to their lineup, sidearming right-handers like Burnett will be in big trouble against the Sox, who already have J.D. Drew and David Ortiz around as legitimate lefty power hitters.
