January 8, 2012

PORTSMOUTH — Mount St. Charles rebounded from Friday night’s 6-3 loss to Bishop Hendricken with a solid 3-0 shutout of Moses Brown on Sunday at the Portsmouth Abbey rink.
Brian Campbell scored two goals to lead the Mounties, who evened their Division I league record at 3-3 on the season.

Northmen like to speed up the game

January 7, 2012

NORTH SMITHFIELD – First-year North Smithfield basketball coach T.J. Ciolfi believes in playing the game at a fast tempo.
“We trap and press the entire game,” Ciolfi was saying on Saturday, two days after his Northmen lost to unbeaten Johnston, their first Division III defeat in four games this season.
“I learned that we have to rebound better from that game,” Ciolfi, a North Providence native, said. “We had been doing a good job rebounding until we played Johnston, but they are tall and very aggressive. It seemed like they got to every loose ball.”

January 5, 2012

PAWTUCKET — If Tolman High ever fits the pieces together, the Tigers could be a tough out in the Division II playoffs.
It is coach Mike Kayata’s job to develop his players into a cohesive unit over the next seven weeks, trying to get the most out of a roster that contains an explosive scoring guard in Juan Velez, a 6-foot-7 junior center named Jon Percy who is a sleeping giant, and several role players who might hold the key to this team’s ultimate outcome.
