BURRILLVILLE – A few hours after Burrillville High head coach Amy Cardone awoke Monday morning, she received a text from netminder Catherine Keable, who played a pivotal role in the Broncos clinching their first state championship in 20 years, not to mention only the second in school history.
About 18 hours earlier, Cardone's crew assembled a masterful, four-goal performance over the final 40 minutes to shock top-seeded and previously-undefeated Lincoln in the R.I. Division II title tilt at Rhode Island College, but Keable's message both worried but didn't surprise her mentor.

PROVIDENCE – The drama was just beginning when Burrillville High senior co-captain Tori Libby hugged junior defender Tiara Bianco near midfield and exclaimed, “I can't believe this! I'm so tired, but I'm so excited!”

In the interim, that tandem's teammates celebrated around her with hugs, impromptu dances and the like.
That's what happens when a team wins a game it almost certainly wasn't supposed to, but found the inner strength to move forward.
