Confident Friars ready to take center stage in NYC

March 6, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Vincent Council provided the type of response that epitomizes the mindset of the Providence College Friars heading into the Big East Tournament.

MSC wins in double OT again, returns to state finals

March 5, 2012

WOONSOCKET — This is how Mount St. Charles sophomore Brian Larence celebrated an amazing 3-2, double-overtime victory over La Salle Academy on Monday night:
While his teammates went ballistic on the ice, exchanging hugs and high-fives, Larence skated to the chain-link fence near the Mounties’ bench at Adelard Arena and fist-bumped schoolmates with his right-handed glove.
He then shed his stick, bent over, grabbed some snow off the ice and threw it at those fans, still going berserk at what they had just witnessed.

March 4, 2012

PROVIDENCE — After his squad's 4-0 loss to La Salle Academy in the first game of the R.I. Championship Division Tournament finals' best-of-three set on Saturday, Mount St. Charles head coach Steve Shea told his kids he loved the fact they had outshot their foes, 30-18.
He also explained to them that mere attempts on goal wouldn't be enough to dispatch the Rams, but firing more quality shots at senior goalkeeper Holly Scott could change the Mounties' fortune.

Eagles down Broncos for Div. I girls' hockey title

March 4, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Just days before the start of the R.I. Division I Tournament championship series between the Burrillville and Barrington co-op squads, Broncos head coach Marc Brissette and his son spent some time shuffling through some old newspapers, just to reminisce.
They came upon one that highlighted the premier PGA careers of the Ocean State’s Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade.
“I knew we were facing Sophie Faxon, the Barrington goalie and Brad’s daughter, in the finals, and I told my son, ‘How ironic is that?’” Brissette stated. “I also said, ‘I hope it’s not an omen.’”

Westerly ousts Woonsocket from Div. I quarterfinals

March 4, 2012

PROVIDENCE — George Coderre knows the drill. As the head coach at Woonsocket High, Coderre studies the game from his sideline perch while his mind races with various adjustment schemes. Obviously the idea is to outsmart the opposition, which Coderre’s club was able to do for most of Sunday’s playoff exercise against Westerly High.

Late power-play goal hands Burrillville/Ponaganset 3-2 loss

Emily Carlson’s second goal of the game, on a 5-on-3 power play with 2:22 left in the game, ruined a dominant third-period showing by the Broncos and lifted the Eagles to a 3-2 triumph at Providence College’s Schneider Arena.

MSC proves no match for La Salle in series opener

March 3, 2012

PROVIDENCE — For the fourth time this season, Mount St. Charles had a hard-fought battle on its hands with longtime rival La Salle, but unlike their first three meetings, the Mounties weren’t fortunate enough to skate out of it with a ‘W’.
And unfortunately for the Mounties, this was no ordinary loss. This was one of their most lopsided defeats in the program’s history, and it took place on a stage they couldn’t afford to lose on – the opening game of the best-of-three State Championship series.
