PROVIDENCE â€” No one ever said the road to postseason glory was easy. Just ask Mount St. Charles, which needed overtime to hold off Rogers, 59-52, Wednesday night in the Division II semifinals at Rhode Island Collegeâ€™s Murray Center. The Mounties dominated the extra session, holding the Vikings to just one field goal while hitting seven free throws.
This might be Stephen Sheaâ€™s first season as a head coach, but the Mount St. Charles Academy mentor has been around Rhode Islandâ€™s girlsâ€™ hockey scene for the past several years as an assistant coach for the Mounties.
That being said, heâ€™s seen plenty of postseason action, but he doesnâ€™t recall seeing a battle for the state championship as balanced and competitive as the one thatâ€™s unfolding this season.
