February 12, 2012

PROVIDENCE --- Lauren Levesque tipped in a shot from Cassandra Czarn 3:55 into overtime to lift Mount St. Charles to a thrilling 3-2 victory over La Salle Academy on Sunday afternoon in the Mounties’ regular-season finale at Providence College’s Schneider Arena.
The victory was the 13th in a row for the two-time defending champions, who are 15-1-0. They had clinched the regular-season title and the No. 1 seed in the 'State Championship' playoffs with a tight 2-0 win over the Burrillville/Ponaganset co-op team less than 24 hours earlier at Adelard Arena.

Slow start costs Jalen Evans chance to win

February 11, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Precision, particularly in the short sprints, is often crucial in the outcome. One minor glitch at the beginning could determine who walks away with the gold and who settles for the silver.
Woonsocket High junior Jalen Evans, the top seed in the 55-meter dash at Saturday’s Class A Championship, found that out the hard way inside the Providence Career and Technical Academy field house.
“I never got the top speed and my start was awful,” said Evans, after finishing second in the dash with a time of 6.5 seconds. “In the middle of the race, I just lost it.”

Basketball gods not kind to PC again

February 11, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Shaun Noriega was in the game for South Florida for one reason alone – to hit 3-point shots.
For someone who played exactly one minute, Noriega made a lasting impact in USF’s 55-48 win against a Providence College outfit that as head coach Ed Cooley noted “doesn’t have the basketball gods on our side.” A junior who entering Saturday had hoisted up 64 shots on the season with 51 of them coming from beyond the arc, Noriega delivered a pair of clutch makes from downtown that propelled the visiting Bulls to their eighth Big East win.

WEB ONLY: MSC wins, Lions' Leclaire stops 72 shots

February 11, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- As expected, Mount St. Charles breezed past Lincoln on Friday night at Adelard Arena by rattling off five goals in the second period to break open a close game and pave the way for an 8-0 victory.
But the story of the night was Chris Leclaire, the Lions’ freshman goalie, who turned away an astounding 72 shots, the most saves in a game by a netminder in this state in recent memory. Leclaire currently leads all Division I goalies in saves with 390.

PC Friars staying positive despite tough stretch

February 10, 2012

PROVIDENCE — For those associated with Providence College basketball, the importance of keeping a stiff upper lip or one’s chin high cannot be underscored. After all, it’s not time to pack away the jerseys just yet.

No contest as North Providence rolls past Cumberland

February 10, 2012

CUMBERLAND — Two nights earlier, the wrestlers from Cumberland High knocked off previously undefeated Bishop Hendricken, the friendly confides of the Wellness Center serving as the backdrop. Hoping to replicate some of that home cooking, the Cumberland boys’ hoops team played host to state contender North Providence on Friday night.

Villa Novans stave off upset-minded Clippers

February 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET — For the first half of Friday’s Division I clash with Woonsocket, winless Cumberland looked nothing like a team that has lost 14 straight league encounters.
The Clippers didn’t looked like it in the second half either, but the Villa Novans were not about to let them walk off their court with their first ‘W’.
Woonsocket picked up its defensive intensity and had a strong second half from Katie Marcoux to pave the way for a 49-34 triumph at Savaria Gymnasium.

Woonsocket edged by Tolman

February 9, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Tolman High’s Dion Rubio, a star football player who developed into a championship-calibre wrestler over the past four winters, enjoys the mat sport.
“It’s really different than football,” Rubio, who finished fifth in the state at 160 pounds last winter, said on Thursday night after sending the Tigers to a 42-39 victory over Woonsocket with a pin in the final minute of the final match of the night.
