Hawks too tough for Broncos in playoff opener

March 2, 2012

WARWICK — Burrillville did everything in its power to beat heavily favored Bishop Hendricken on Friday night in the opening game of their best-of-three State Championship semifinal-round series at Thayer Arena.
The fourth-seeded Broncos turned in one of their best efforts of the season, an effort that saw them play a penalty-free game with the regular-season champs and match their physical play and defensive prowess, but in the end, the hosts took advantage of a couple of breaks to come out on top, 4-2.

Tying it all together: Pawtucket's LaBranche instrumental in bringing 'Elite Eight' games to PC's Alumni Hall

March 2, 2012

PROVIDENCE — In the person of Carl LaBranche, the R.I. Interscholastic League and Providence College benefited from having an ace in the hole.
The underlying reason why PC’s venerable Alumni Hall gym is the site for Sunday’s “Elite Eight” round of the open state tournament is due to the communication and negotiating skills tapped by LaBranche in harmonizing this project. With this Pawtucket native (Tolman High School Class of 1970) serving as the point man, LaBranche’s vision of opening Alumni Hall’s doors to the state’s high school basketball sector became a reality.
