November 20, 2010

BURRILLVILLE — Gennaro Ferraro looks back on his football team’s frustrating season with a mixture of realism and pragmatism.

Lincoln aiming for win, staying healthy on Turkey Day

November 20, 2010

LINCOLN — Dave Waycott is currently bouncing around the same dilemma 14 other playoff-bound head coaches around the state are pondering as they prepare for their respective Thanksgiving matchups.
“Do you play (your players) to keep them sharp or rest them to avoid getting hurt?” the Lincoln head coach asked. “I’ve been going back and forth with this. I haven’t really decided what we’re going to do when we play them.”

Lavallee on track for U.S. Trials berth

November 20, 2010

Roland Lavallee was getting a little itchy.
After an almost two-month layoff from competitive running, he was anxious to know how his 100-mile weeks of pounding the pavement had paid off.
The 32-year-old Lavallee satisfied that itch last month when he hopped into his car and made the 45-minute drive to Newport.

Never look past the next game ... right?

November 17, 2010

Coaches can’t look past their next opponent. Sports writers shouldn’t, either. But sometimes the temptation to look down the road is just too enticing.
When it comes to local high school football, what’s next is a two-day slate of Thanksgiving contests, which are “rivalry” games with not much at stake … except for East Providence’s game against La Salle on Thanksgiving morning. E.P. is already in the Division I playoff field. La Salle needs a win to gain the fourth and final playoff berth over Barrington.

McCoart, Silva sign Letters of Intent to D-I schools

November 17, 2010

Alyssa McCoart and Nicole Silva play softball in arguably the toughest division in Rhode Island – the Division I-North circuit – but after next spring, the competition’s going to get a whole lot tougher for these local senior standouts.
That’s because the Lincoln High first baseman/pitcher and Mount St. Charles Academy third baseman, who are very good friends who have known each other since the eighth grade, will be taking their talents to the Division I collegiate level, and they made that official last week by signing National Letters of Intent to their respective schools.

D-II playoffs overshadowing T-Day games?

November 16, 2010

The Division II football playoffs usually provide the most interesting competition every season when Rhode Island teams begin competing for Super Bowl berths.
D-II holds a big advantage over the other three divisions because it is the state’s largest league (16 teams). It invites eight teams to the playoffs instead of the four we find in other divisions. Its quarterfinals are held in the second week of November while the regular season is still going on elsewhere.

EWG turns away Lincoln, 2-1

November 15, 2010

PROVIDENCE — The scoreboard doesn’t always tell the true story of a soccer game.
That may have been the case on Sunday as darkness enveloped the R.I. College soccer field while Lincoln and Exeter/West Greenwich battled through a tense Division II state championship final.
When the final whistle sounded, EWG celebrated a 2-1 victory over the gallant Lions, who hung tough in a game that saw the Scarlet Knights own a 24-10 advantage in shots on goal.

Gardner savors title triumph

November 15, 2010

Joe Gardner didn’t get a ticker-tape parade down Woonsocket’s Main Street this past Saturday for capturing the EBA (Eastern Boxing Association) New England light heavyweight title the previous night at the Twin River Event Center.
So the Woonsocket Boxing Club fighter did the next best thing. He hopped in his car, put his championship belt in his back seat, and toured the area to show his grand prize to as many friends and family members as he possibly could.

D’Abate not ready to leave Mounties

November 14, 2010

WOONSOCKET — The decision never did have anything to do with the money or the more suitable climate.
It was all about happiness. It was all about family.
That’s what led Josh D’Abate to remain at Mount St. Charles; to remain at Mount as the head coach of both his successful boys’ and girls’ volleyball programs.
