WOONSOCKET â€“ On a night the offense struggled mightily, East Providenceâ€™s defense rose to the occasion, especially at the end of the opening half, and fetched the Townies an important Division I-North victory over Woonsocket on Tuesday night.
The Towniesâ€™ â€˜Dâ€™ forced the Novans to commit the bulk of their 20 turnovers and played a big role in an 18-point run in the first half by keeping their hosts scoreless for eight-plus minutes, and in the process, helping produce a 54-39 triumph.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Mount St. Charles, Cumberland and Lincoln swept their opponents on Monday night in a Northern Division meet.
Mount swept Shea and St. Raphael while Cumberland rolled over Ponaganset and Woonsocket. Lincoln topped Central Falls and Tolman.
Several of the usual suspects stood out with strong performances. Woonsocketâ€™s Jalen Evans swept the 55-meter dash (6.6 seconds) and 300-meter race (38.0). Tolmanâ€™s Homlin Taylor won his sprint in 6.7 seconds.
