Cumberland's Crawley eyes superb finish to cross country season

October 8, 2012

CUMBERLAND — The dual meet portion of the cross-country season is safely in the books. The early-in-the-week gatherings involving schools squaring off against their regional rivals has given way to a postseason gamut that is far more demanding and extensive due to the field expanding.
To Trevor Crawley, shifting from the sport’s unofficial “warm-up act” to a series of defined gatherings of harriers is not akin to a mystery wrapped in an enigma. To date, everything the Cumberland High senior has done on the trails has been geared toward what lies ahead, albeit with a slight twist.

Soukhamthath delivers impressive TKO at Dunk

October 8, 2012

PROVIDENCE — On this night, Andre Soukhamthath was not going to be denied.
Not in his return to Providence, where he has plenty of friends and family members and spent the first half of his life before moving to Woonsocket. And certainly not in his very first fight in the bright spotlight of the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.

Hoard wins Woonsocket's Race Against Racism 5K

October 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- When Chris Hoard woke up on Sunday morning and decided to sign up to run in the second annual Race Against Racism 5K at World War II Memorial Park, the furthest thing from his mind was actually winning the race.
But to his surprise, that’s exactly what the 38-year-old Woonsocket native did. He topped a field of 163 runners and walkers by crossing the finish line in 21:14 -- not your average first-place time for a local 3.1-mile race, but certainly good enough on this day to cop top honors.

Stressing the importance of the kicking game

October 4, 2012

Often times the importance of the kicking game at the high school level can go undervalued or overlooked. Blame such shortsightedness on the premium coaches and players place on strategizing offensively and defensively throughout the week, the attention paid to more crucial matters, in turn rendering the very idea of place-kicking and punting duties influencing the final outcome to mundane qualities.

McGair: Bobby V had a chance to return, but he couldn’t help himself

October 4, 2012

A little of this, a little of that …

Believe it or not, as far-flung as this may sound, there was a time when this corner believed Bobby Valentine would somehow be granted a stay of execution and return as manager of the Red Sox next season.

Lincoln's Bouthillette will continue softball career at Bryant

October 3, 2012

LINCOLN – Dick Ryan knows what a special talent he has in Emily Bouthillette, hence why the Lincoln High softball coach isn’t afraid to spread the word regarding a player that Ryan feels is flying somewhat “under the radar.”

Northmen spikers exact revenge against Clippers

October 2, 2012

CUMBERLAND — Ever since North Smithfield lost its season-opening match to Cumberland, a five-set defeat that saw the Clippers clock the Northmen in the final game, 15-3, the Northmen have eagerly awaited their rematch with the Clippers and circled the date on their calendars.
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.

Northmen survive shootout with Cougars, 38-34

September 29, 2012

NORTH PROVIDENCE — For North Smithfield, Saturday’s Division IV contest against North Providence was more of a mental exercise than physical.
Forced to come back on a few occasions, the Northmen dug deep to take this shootout, 38-34. 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.
