It certainly showed on Tuesday night.

Desrosiers' goal lifts unbeaten Broncos past Clippers

October 1, 2012

BURRILLVILLE -- Back on Thursday, Sept. 20, Burrillville High needed overtime to dispatch Division II rival Cumberland, 1-0, at its Tucker Field home.
According to senior tri-captain Laura Hauser, the Broncos didn’t want to go to an extra session again.
“Our game plan was to stop their drives from going through because they did a pretty good job of that the first time,” Hauser said of the squads’ second meeting on Monday afternoon. “Their goalie (senior Elizabeth Alberg) also is pretty fast, so we needed to work her, catch her off-balance.”

Villa Novans dig deep, top Bulldogs in OT

September 29, 2012

WESTERLY — It’s a long 65-mile drive from Woonsocket to Westerly’s Augeri Field, but the Villa Novans’ bus ride home from the southwestern point of the state on Saturday afternoon had to be a very enjoyable drive.
That’s because the Villa Novans took a 19-18 overtime thriller from the previously-undefeated Bulldogs in their Division II-A clash, a hard-fought win that upped their league record to 2-1 and packed them into a congested three-way tie for second place (behind undefeated Johnston) with Westerly and Coventry.

North Providence enjoyed leads early – 12-0 after the first quarter – and late – 34-31 with 8:47 remaining – before N.S. delivered a series of game-changing plays on both sides of the ball that allowed the visitors to cast a pall over the Cougars’ Homecoming celebration.

Mother gets better of daughter as Broncos top 'Bolts

September 27, 2012

BURRILLVILLE — Mere seconds after Burrillville High had sailed to a 4-0 Division II-North victory over Cranston East on Thursday afternoon, players – as is standard fare – walked the sideline closest to the team benches and issued other high-fives while stating over and over “Good game.”
When it got to the head coaches, the Broncos’ Susan Burgess looked at the Thunderbolt’s Sarah Knowlton and offered something undecipherable.
Burgess then placed her arm around her and grinned, and Knowlton responded with a smile before the two embraced right at the midfield stripe.

September 26, 2012

CUMBERLAND – Central Falls High head coach Carl Africo doesn't ask former mentor Bobby Marchand to help him out with scouting, but – if he's going to offer – the former isn't about to argue.
Prior to the Warriors' Division I tilt against Cumberland on Wednesday night, Marchand told Africo he had seen the Clippers play at Barrington earlier in the week, and told him that junior striker Kyle Courtney had the speed and ball skills to be a thorn in CF's defensive side.

Clippers cross country teams grab four wins each

September 25, 2012

CUMBERLAND — Head coach Tom Kenwood had an outstanding reason as to why he kept his top four Cumberland High harriers, including probable All-State junior Trevor Crawley and classmate Kevin Seaver, from competing in a Northern Division meet featuring four other Valley squads.
“I’m trying to minimize the number of races they run in the season to keep them fresh; I want them to be ready when the bigger meets come up,” Kenwood stated simply.
