PROVIDENCE --- Drama? On this night, it only lasted a period.
The Mounties erased a 1-0 deficit by rattling off three goals during a span of 2:13 near the end of the first period and start of the second, and with the way their defense excelled from start to finish, state championship No. 42 was as good as gold.
PROVIDENCE â€” After battling a stiff headwind for the first mile of the St. Patâ€™s 5K, Stephen Pretak knew his goal of running close to 15 minutes would not happen Saturday morning.
But the less-than-favorable conditions in the Providence race didnâ€™t stop him from breaking the tape a winner.
The 26-year-old Connecticut native captured the final stage of the inaugural Tour de Patrick, finishing the out-and-back course with a time of 15:31.7. Pretak held off defending titlist Eric Lonergan of North Kingstown, who claimed the runner-up spot at 15:35.4.
