WARWICK --- Brandon Borges saved the season for Mount St. Charles.
The sophomore right wing produced the biggest goal of his young high school career on Saturday night in the second overtime of Game 2 of MSCâs best-of-three State Championship semifinal-round series against La Salle.
Borges scored off a pass from junior Brian Belisle 39 seconds into the second 7Â˝-minute session to lead the Mounties to a heart-pounding 4-3 triumph over the Rams before a packed house at Thayer Arena.
PROVIDENCE â The slow start hurt, but the late penalties proved to be the undoing of the Burrillville/Ponaganset co-op team on Saturday afternoon in the opening game of their best-of-three Division I championship series with the Barrington co-op squad.
Emily Carlsonâs second goal of the game, on a 5-on-3 power play with 2:22 left in the game, ruined a dominant third-period showing by the Broncos and lifted the Eagles to a 3-2 triumph at Providence Collegeâs Schneider Arena.
PROVIDENCE â For the fourth time this season, Mount St. Charles had a hard-fought battle on its hands with longtime rival La Salle, but unlike their first three meetings, the Mounties werenât fortunate enough to skate out of it with a âWâ.
And unfortunately for the Mounties, this was no ordinary loss. This was one of their most lopsided defeats in the programâs history, and it took place on a stage they couldnât afford to lose on â the opening game of the best-of-three State Championship series.
WOONSOCKET -- A red-hot goalie and a forward who gave the team fits during the regular season teamed up to hand Mount St. Charles a tough loss in Game 1 of the State Championship best-of-three semifinal-round series.
Tyler Walsh turned away 45 shots and Bryan Lemos supplied the scoring to lead La Salle to a 2-1 victory and put the Rams one win away from a trip to the state finals before a packed house at Adelard Arena.
The third-seeded Rams (12-6-1) will look to end the Mountiesâ bid for a fifth straight state championship tonight when the series resumes tonight at 7 p.m. at Thayer Arena.
