January 8, 2013

A little of this, a little of that…

We’ll have some baseball news to chew on Wednesday afternoon when the Hall of Fame balloting is unveiled for public consumption. In the eyes of this non-voter, Cooperstown should roll out the welcome mat for one non-steroid tainted newcomer on the ballot, Craig Biggio, whose inclusion is based purely on achieving 3,000 hits – one of those mythical benchmarks that automatically trigger inclusion into the game’s exclusive fraternity.

Lions in good spirits after loss to powerful Mounties

January 6, 2013

WOONSOCKET — For a head coach whose squad had just fallen, 4-2, to mighty Mount St. Charles in a crossover tilt, Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op's Dick Ernst sure seemed in good spirits as he strolled out of an Adelard Arena team room on Saturday night.
Behind 4-0 entering the final session, the always-animated veteran mentor's Lions fought back with two goals in the span of 48 seconds midway through it.
“Our kids just didn't give up,” Ernst raved about his girls. “We trailed by four coming in, and the only thing I told the kids was to go out and win the third. Guess what? They did.”

Hockey Mounties searching for answers

January 6, 2013

WOONSOCKET — It wasn't so much the fact that Mount St. Charles dropped a 4-0 decision to defending state Division I champion Hendricken that irked head coach Dave Belisle to such a degree, but how.
The Mounties trailed the Hawks by a mere 1-0 count as the final seconds of the middle period drew to a close at Adelard Arena on Saturday night. The way Belisle figured it, all his guys needed to do was get into the locker room unscathed, then regroup, make adjustments and continue to storm the visitors' goalkeeper, senior Mitchell Proulx.

Remembering Mr. Burrillville: Skee Carter's death shocks close-knit community

January 5, 2013

BURRILLVILLE — Peter Berthelette heard his cellphone ring as he stood at a table inside Burrillville High's Senior Lounge last Wednesday. He had been conversing with baseball player Zach Lafleur and two classmates as they ate their lunches.
“I typically don't answer my cell in front of students, but when the call showed up as coming from Skee Carter, I did anyway,” Berthelette recalled. “I said, 'Hi, Skee!' and all I heard was a pause. The voice on the other end said, 'Hi, Pete. It's not Skee, it's Chris (his son). I have some bad news,' and he told me what happened.

WEB ONLY: Mount girls hold off East Bay co-op team

January 5, 2013

WOONSOCKET --- Mount St. Charles endured one of its toughest tests to date on Friday night when the East Bay (Barrington/Mount Hope/Portsmouth) co-op squad bused into Adelard Arena for a crossover affair, but the Mounties were still able to come away with a hard-fought 3-1 win.
The Mounties ran into a very hot goaltender in Sophie Faxon, who turned away 42 shots, but did all the damage they needed to do late in the first period on a pair of goals by junior Briana Castro (her 11th and 12th of the season) to net their sixth victory in seven games.
