Clippers flying high in Division II-North

December 20, 2011

WOONSOCKET -- The senior class is one of its smallest in a number of years.
The number of players that graduated from last season’s Division II-North championship club, including six of the top eight scorers and one of the finest goaltenders in the team’s history, was one of its largest.
And several players who are featured in key positions have little or no varsity experience.
But despite all this, Cumberland has been the talk of the division and the area’s only team with a ‘0’ in the loss column.

Davies girls suffer first loss

December 19, 2011

LINCOLN – Joe Handy has been coaching long enough to know that when you take over a program for the first time the transition period isn’t always going to be easy. With a new coach and a new system, it’s not always going to be smooth.
In his first year at Davies Tech after two decades at Central Falls, including 10 as the head coach, Handy experienced one of those lumps on Monday.

Cumberland wrestlers rule Lancer Invitational

December 18, 2011

WILLIMANTIC, Ct. – Cumberland High walked away with the team championship at Saturday’s Lancer Invitational, crowning two individual champions and seeing a third wrestler, Erik Travers, have victory stolen away from him by some sloppy officiating.
Jon Maccini (138) and Tom Lacroix (195) claimed individual titles for the Clippers, who accumulated 220 team points to run away with the title over runnerup Southington (Ct.), which took second place with 166 points.

Cumberland hockey team improves to 5-0

December 18, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Mike Kinch must consider Lynch Arena his home ice.
The Cumberland High senior, whose family has strong ties to Pawtucket, led the Clippers to a 5-2 victory over the SRA-PCD-Wheeler Co-Op team on Saturday night by scoring two goals and assisting on another.
“Mike’s a strong player who skates well and has a good shot,” Cumberland coach Mark Andreozzi said after the game. Kinch now has six goals and nine assists on the season, putting him near the top of the state in points scored.

Jalen Evans sits out indoor track meet

December 17, 2011

PROVIDENCE – The first major meet of the indoor track season was minus one of its fastest runners on Saturday.
Hanging out with his teammates outside the track surface at the Providence Career and Technical Academy field house was Woonsocket High junior Jalen Evans. After competing earlier this week in his first meet since a season-ending foot injury at the start of the football season, Evans was back in street clothes after a minor setback.

December 17, 2011

Editor's Note: The roundup of Friday night's boys' hockey games will only be found on The Call's website.

WOONSOCKET -- After scoring just eight goals in its first three games, Mount St. Charles broke out in a big way offensively on Friday night.
Brandon Borges and Ryan Berard each produced a pair of goals and as many assists for the Mounties, who scored the final seven goals of the game en route to a 9-4 win over Moses Brown in their Division I meeting at Adelard Arena.

Kilties outrun Villa Novans

December 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Woonsocket High has some pieces of the puzzle in place but seems to be lacking one key position that would create a competent offensive unit.
“We haven’t had a point guard for two years,” head coach Kyle Ivey-Jones said after his Villa Novans played hard and without much cohesion during a 71-53 loss to Mount Pleasant in the Division I-North opener for both teams on Friday night.

Lesson learned: Kadeem Batts set to rejoin Friars

December 15, 2011

WARWICK — With his own special and unique brand of tough love, Ed Cooley consistently relays to suspended forward Kadeem Batts that he let the entire Providence College basketball program down.
“I let him know about it every single day by saying ‘Thanks Kadeem, thanks,’” said the PC coach on Thursday at the Radisson Hotel, site of the first Cox Sports R.I. Basketball Media Luncheon of the season. “We don’t hide anything.”

Teamwork has been key to Lady Novans' success

December 15, 2011

WOONSOCKET — George Coderre likes to sit on the bench during Woonsocket High basketball games and let his players, usually his point guard, run the offense, calling out which plays to run against a specific defense.
“Every coach has their own style,” Coderre was saying Wednesday afternoon. “I am extremely vocal and demonstrative during practice. In games, I try to sit down and just let the players feed off of each other. I do make some noise during games but I try to let the kids recognize defenses and call their own plays.”

Rare territory for Mounties

December 14, 2011

Here’s a look at the early state of affairs in hockey’s three divisions …
For most teams, a 1-2 start to a season usually doesn’t mean much. For Mount St. Charles fans, MSC’s 1-2 start has some of them reaching for the panic button, especially since the four-time defending champions haven’t began a Division I campaign with that mark since the mid-1970s.
Of course, two of their defeats have come to La Salle, which so far, looks like the team to beat. The Rams are 4-0, have outscored their opponents 27-4, and boast the division’s top three scorers.
