SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ Talent and overall heart.
That has been the cornerstone to Mount St. Charles Academyâ€™s sterling debut into the Division I ranks this fall, one that included an undefeated 14-0 league mark in I-North and a 16-0 regular-season record.
To no oneâ€™s surprise, those two attributes were on full display during the top-seeded Mountiesâ€™ semifinal match with the Prout School on Tuesday night.
Only this time, it wouldnâ€™t prove enough.
LINCOLN â€“ You could say the elements helped even the playing field between Lincoln and North Smithfield. With a steady rain sweeping across Chet Nichols Field, Tuesdayâ€™s Division II quarterfinal match became a matter of survival.
Thanks to two goals in the final nine minutes, the Lions emerged from this mud bath with a 2-0 victory over the Northmen, who played the game minus the services of head coach Steve DeMeo. DeMeo was relieved of his coaching duties after Mondayâ€™s arrest for allegedly transmitting inappropriate messages to a minor.
