Upset! Cumberland booters stun Shea, 2-0

November 1, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Head coach Pierre Ridore had several reasons to believe his Shea High squad would reign in a R.I. Division I Tournament preliminary tilt against Cumberland on Thursday afternoon.
First, his Raiders had rolled to a 4-1 victory over the Clippers just nine days before this playoff; second, Ridore's bunch entered the contest with a 6-0-1 mark at home – that is, when it played either at Max Read Field or the McKinnon-Alves Complex – and this would be played at the latter.

October 31, 2012

LINCOLN — Davies Tech head coach Victor Oliveira usually has an inkling as to how his squad will execute prior to a contest. It’s based on collective attitude, and how they’re conducting themselves.
On Wednesday afternoon, he had no doubt.
Senior tri-captain Paulo Chavez and classmate Daniel Munoz each netted a pair of goals and junior Mauricio Agudelo chipped in a tally and two assists as the sixth-seeded Patriots walloped No. 11-ranked Johnston High, 7-0, in a R.I. Division III Tournament preliminary tilt.

October 30, 2012

On the evening of Thursday, Oct. 18, Glenn Ginish, Jr., a performance analyst for a renowned bank in Boston, was taking the “T” home to Jamaica Plains when he figured he'd call his kid sister, Laura, back at her mom's apartment on Mendon Road.
He did so just so the two could catch up with each other's lives.

Evans' big game leads Woonsocket past Chariho

October 27, 2012

WOONSOCKET — The vision, the quickness, the bursts of acceleration … Woonsocket senior Jalen Evans was the complete package.
More important than any of the other listed attributes, Evans was the picture of perfect health. The fact he was running just as hard in the fourth quarter as he was during the opening stanza proved that he was over the knee ailment that sidelined him last week. Evans just kept on wielding the hammer, running in and around Chariho’s defense in what amounted to a 34-13 runaway performance for Woonsocket on Saturday afternoon at Barry Field.

Football Lions, Broncos continue to soldier along

October 26, 2012

In the throes of a tough and challenging season, there lies comfort in knowing you’re not the only one in said predicament.
For Burrillville and Lincoln, Saturday’s Division III encounter at the Broncos’ Alumni Field has “something’s got to give” written all over it. The setting is this: you have two squads that have combined to drop all nine of its league chances, meaning the opportunity for a team to finally break the ice and walk off the field with a win tucked in its back pocket has never been more within reach (overall the Lions are 0-6 while the Broncos are 1-5).
