WOONSOCKET â€“ Mary Lynn Bosiak, publisher of The Call, announced Friday that organizers of the planned Last Night celebration had reluctantly canceled the festivities.
She said regulatory conditions imposed on the organizers at the eleventh hour were the cause of the decision.
WARWICK --- Lincoln picked up right where it left off last winter.
Owners of a magical 23-0-1 mark and the Division II championship a season ago, the Lions kicked off their title defense on the right foot on Friday night by topping the St. Raphael/Providence Country Day/Wheeler co-op team, 6-2, in their Division II-North opener at Thayer Arena.
It was a decent start to a promising year for the Lions, who graduated seven players from last seasonâ€™s team and are carrying an 18-man roster that has a return trip to the finals at Brown University atop their wish list this winter.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ That wasnâ€™t a basketball game that took place at the Ryan Center Thursday. That was a rock fight.
Or considering the stare down at center court that Dan Hurley and Ed Cooley engaged in with 3:55 remaining â€“ one that also contained a few verbal jabs for good measure â€“ perhaps they should have put the basketballs away and slapped a pair of boxing gloves on the two head coaches.
Style points were definitely at a premium, but oh, what a conclusion the Friars and Rams staged.
What would it take for the stateâ€™s four Division I menâ€™s basketball programs to get together for an in-season, round-robin tournament?
Depends on which school representative you speak with.
â€śAnything we could do to grow interest, whether it be a doubleheader, a tournament or anything like that, we would be all for it,â€ť stated Brown head coach Mike Martin.
