Woonsocket's Tyrone Nared found his way on the hardwood

January 19, 2012

Life, we’re often reminded, is a journey along a path. Marked by repeated twists, turns, bends and detours, we take comfort in knowing that each path is unique. No two people ever embark on a similar trek.
No road map, satellite-based navigation system, not even a Mapquest.com printout is required. Following one’s heart and ambitions serve as the main motivators, the idea of how we feel deep down aiding us to better grasping the wheel to steer towards one’s wants, needs and mindsets. In a nutshell, it’s the journey within the journey.

32 turnovers ruin Broncos' chances for victory

January 18, 2012

JOHNSTON -- Before setting its sights on Friday’s big battle with undefeated Moses Brown, Burrillville had to deal with a pesky Johnston team determined to climb its way up the Division II-North standings.
Unfortunately for the Broncos, they didn’t deal with their hosts very well, and as a result, they turned in one of their worst performances of the season.
The Broncos turned the ball over 32 times and scored just seven points in the final 8:57 of their Wednesday night contest against the Panthers and ended up on the short end of a 51-36 score.

La Salle beats Mounties again

January 17, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Someone forgot to tell Mount St. Charles and La Salle that Tuesday night’s game at Providence College’s Schneider Arena was a benefit non-league affair, not Game 3 of the best-of-three state championship series.
Like their first two Division I meetings of the season, the Mounties and Rams engaged in a fast-paced, tight-checking duel that entertained a large gathering of fans on hand.
But like those first two games, La Salle was able to skate away with a close, hard-fought victory.

Clippers forced to dig deep, keep dual-meet streak intact

January 16, 2012

CUMBERLAND — 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.
“We came out lazy in the Warwick tournament on Saturday,” said Townies’ leader Joao Vicente. “Coach (Tom Galligan) warned us we couldn’t do that against Cumberland. Today, we came out very warm.”
The Townies won five of the first six matches to build a 23-6 advantage.

MSC's Sayles one to watch as state meet approaches

January 16, 2012

PROVIDENCE — The state championships for track and field will be held in about a month. It’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 girls’ competition were inside the Providence Career and Technical Academy field house Monday afternoon for their respective divisional meets.

MSC gets back on track, tops Cranston West

January 16, 2012

CRANSTON — 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.
“He’s the reason the game was close,” Mount coach Dave Belisle said. “I thought we played very well. We’re just having a tough time scoring. We’re making strides. This is such an inexperienced team, it is definitely still a work in progress.”

'Too early to make any predictions' in R.I. wrestling

January 15, 2012

CUMBERLAND — When it came time to wrestle the finals of Saturday night’s John D. Gorman Memorial Tournament at Cumberland High, two chairs at matside were occupied by coaches from Bishop Hendricken (Kevin Hennessey) and Warwick Veterans (George Schmeider).
“They’re just wrestling junkies,” Cumberland coach Steve Gordon said with a laugh on Sunday morning, after his balanced team had captured the team title despite crowning only one individual champion (Tom LaCroix at 195). “Kevin and George probably just wanted to see our boys wrestle. They’re scouting, of course, checking us out.

Hendricken edges Mounties

January 14, 2012

WARWICK – Mount St. Charles suffered another tough Division I loss on Saturday night, losing a 3-2 decision to unbeaten Bishop Hendricken.
Dave Mitchell netted a power-play goal with 3:48 left in the game to break the tie and improve the Hawks’ league record to 8-0-1. Four-time defending state champion Mount fell to 4-4.
Hendricken took a 1-0 lead in the first period when senior forward Robert Beuhrer beat Mount goalie Brian Larence. Mount tied the game late in the second period on a goal by Brandon Borges.

Clippers capture John D. Gorman Memorial Tournament

January 14, 2012

CUMBERLAND – It was a strange kind of tournament for Cumberland, which easily clinched the John D. Gorman Memorial team title before the finals began on Saturday night, then saw its first four finalists lose before unbeaten Tom LaCroix salvaged some Clipper pride with a convincing win at 195 pounds.
Lincoln High heavyweight Nick Zicuis capped the tournament with a 3-2 victory in the 285-pound finals, scoring a late takedown to edge Durfee High’s Andre Torres.

Cumberland boys, girls on pace to peak at swim state meet

January 14, 2012

CUMBERLAND — For 22 straight years, Bishop Hendricken has worn the crown and this season it doesn’t seem like that will change.
La Salle Academy has dominated the girls’ side the past four years and an equally-strong squad has returned for the winter campaign.
It will be difficult once again to knock the two powerhouses from their perches at the state meet next month.
The rest…it’s anybody’s guess?
