Ex-PawSox skipper Beyeler is a repeat champ

October 30, 2013

BOSTON – Wherever Arnie Beyeler goes, championships seem to follow.

One year after piloting the Pawtucket Red Sox to their first Governors’ Cup championship in 28 years, Beyeler received a promotion as the longtime minor-league manager joined the Boston Red Sox as the team’s first-base coach.
Just like that memorable September night when the PawSox celebrated the night away in Fort Mill, South Carolina, Beyeler found himself smack dab in the middle of another champagne-drenched celebration, this one taking place on a much brighter stage.

New champs are ‘in good shape’ moving forward

BOSTON – Whenever a season winds down, the inclination is to stare into a crystal ball, hoping that it will reveal answers regarding the future.

‘Big Hurt’ isn’t surprised with Big Papi’s success

October 30, 2013

BOSTON – In the eyes of Frank Thomas, David Ortiz didn’t become the top designated hitter on the planet purely by accident.

“To have success at that position, you’ve got to work on a lot of things during the game that people don’t see,” explained Thomas while watching the Red Sox take batting practice prior to Game 6 of the World Series. “You’ve got to stay mentally focused and you’ve got to stay loose to get up there and jump into a ballgame like you’re 100 percent ready to go.”

Sentinels’ late strike ousts Clippers from Div. II semis

October 30, 2013

EAST GREENWICH — When one of her players asked Cumberland High head coach Stefanie Capone-Bello how her baby was surviving the early moments of a battle between the Clippers and Smithfield on Wednesday night, the elder replied, “Pretty good, I think.”
Immediately after the second-ranked Sentinels had roared to an incredible 3-2 victory in this R.I. Division II Tournament semifinal at Nick Carcieri Field, Capone-Bello kept the same sense of humor, though looked sad doing so.

Tiverton stuns Mount in double OT in girls' soccer playoffs

October 29, 2013

WOONSOCKET -- It was hard to tell if Mount St. Charles’ head coach Marek Wolny’s post-game words to his girls did the trick or not.

The seventh-seeded Mounties had just suffered a disappointing 1-0 double-overtime loss to No. 10 Tiverton at the lower campus field on Tuesday afternoon, but – after congratulating the Tigers and the officials with hand slaps and/or fist bumps for a job well done – Wolny huddled his troops and attempted some calming devices.

McGair: Born-again Big East still contains plenty of coaching starpower

October 27, 2013

For years, the names rolled off your tongue so effortlessly that it felt like you were on a first-name basis with them. Everything felt so warm and reassuring when discussing certain Big East coaches that mentioning them in the same breath as death and taxes was perfectly acceptable.

Nothing is certain but death and taxes – along with Jim Boeheim coaching at Syracuse. Ditto Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, Rick Pitino at Louisville and Mike Brey at Notre Dame.

Thornhill, Broncos bust out against Tiverton, 42-13

October 26, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – Last Saturday night, after Burrillville High had posted a solid 34-8 victory over Exeter/West Greenwich, head coach Gennaro Ferraro explained that – following three previous dismal blowout losses – he felt his squad was “rounding the corner.

“I thought the kids got bumped off their orbit a little bit … we needed this win, and we got it,” he noted. “I think we're back on track.”

If Saturday afternoon is any indication, the Broncos' thundering herd has … well, been heard, and who knows what to expect from them as November draws near.

WILL-POWER: Andino carries Novans offense in 20-8 win over Titans

October 26, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Saturday afternoon marked “Senior Day” for the Woonsocket High football team, and a pre-game celebration – one in which the dozen soon-to-be graduates issued flowers to their parents and/or guardians – must have had them feeling rather satisfied.

The inner peace didn't quite show itself during the 48 minutes of battling against Division II-A foe Toll Gate, but the gritty Villa Novans nevertheless left Barry Field with a 20-8 triumph.

For PC's Cooley, there’s a method to ‘Late Night Madness’

October 25, 2013

PROVIDENCE – On a campus where the men’s basketball program serves as a valuable gateway for public attention, nights like the one that took place at Providence College Friday are held in high esteem, not only by students, but the community at large.

With much fanfare, head coach Ed Cooley, his assistants and players rolled out the Black & White carpet for “Late Night Madness” festivities at Alumni Hall.
