CUMBERLAND â€” East Providence came out on fire and pushed Cumberland to the brink of dual-meet defeat for the first time in three years on Monday morning before the Clippers turned the tables for an exciting 40-32 conquest of the Townies.
â€śWe came out lazy in the Warwick tournament on Saturday,â€ť said Towniesâ€™ leader Joao Vicente. â€śCoach (Tom Galligan) warned us we couldnâ€™t do that against Cumberland. Today, we came out very warm.â€ť
The Townies won five of the first six matches to build a 23-6 advantage.
PROVIDENCE â€” The state championships for track and field will be held in about a month. Itâ€™s getting closer to realizing who will be the contenders and who will be the pretenders.
From a local standpoint, a few of those possible contenders for the girlsâ€™ competition were inside the Providence Career and Technical Academy field house Monday afternoon for their respective divisional meets.
CRANSTON â€” Mount St. Charles is showing signs of turning the corner.
The Mounties, who outshot unbeaten Hendricken 38-23 during a 3-2 loss on Saturday night, kept the pressure on Monday during a 3-1 victory over Cranston West, outshooting the Falcons by a 60-25 margin.
Cranston West goalie Derek Hagopian made 60 saves.
â€śHeâ€™s the reason the game was close,â€ť Mount coach Dave Belisle said. â€śI thought we played very well. Weâ€™re just having a tough time scoring. Weâ€™re making strides. This is such an inexperienced team, it is definitely still a work in progress.â€ť
