WOONSOCKET --- Mount St. Charles has earned the right to defend its own Holiday Face-Off tournament title, but in order to get back to the finals, MSC had to overcome the superb play of a scorching-hot goaltender.
St. Dominic Academy of Auburn, Maine received a brilliant 56-save effort by Grant Carrier, but Mount was able to get key goals from two of its freshmen and skate off with a 3-0 victory on Wednesday night in the semifinals of their 16th annual tournament at Adelard Arena.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Whether itâ€™s a cross-country or track race, thereâ€™s only one place where Trevor Crawley feels the most comfortable, and thatâ€™s right up front.

For almost the entire distance of the 3,000-meter run at Wednesdayâ€™s Rhode Island Track Classic, Crawley took his customary, front-runner position, rattling off consistent 200 splits between 36-37 seconds.
The Clipper standout did the necessary work for a victory in the regional meet, it just wasnâ€™t enough.
