BURRILLVILLE — Burrillville High beat the darkness. It just couldn't beat its opponent.
No. 7 seed West Warwick High gave the second-seeded Broncos a quick exit in the postseason with a 3-2 overtime victory Monday afternoon in the Division III quarterfinals. Senior captain Rebecca Pacheco out-hustled two defenders and nailed the clincher over the head of goalie Vicki Libby just two minutes into the second mandatory OT period.
“It just came down to who wanted it more,” said Bronco head coach Amy Cardone. “It was pretty close up until the very end.”
