Short-handed Friars top Assumption in exhibition contest

October 25, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Ed Cooley knew he was in store for some rough sledding the moment he signed up at Providence College last March.
The task is great, but even Cooley had shake his head in disbelief based on what went down prior to the Friars hitting the floor for their first exhibition game on Tuesday night. A thin roster was stretched even thinner as Cooley had just eight scholarship players available for his team’s tuneup against Assumption College.

October 25, 2011

Bronco booters await big test on Wednesday

October 24, 2011

BURRILLVILLE – Over-confident? Thinking too far ahead?
Walking off the field, Burrillville high coach Amy Carbone couldn’t come up with a reason why her talented squad was simply overpowered by its Division III opponent.
That game was more than a month ago – a 5-0 defeat to Middletown on Sept. 19.
Since that defeat and the three games before it, it has been nothing but smooth sailing for the Lady Broncos. After its latest victory, a 11-0 Senior Day rout of Davies Tech on Monday afternoon, Burrillville improved its league record to 14-1-0.

October 22, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Lincoln School’s doubles team of Hayley Lough and Jamie Pine continued their mastery of Mount’s Katherine Porcaro and Emily Cardosa in Saturday’s state championship finals at Slater Park.
Mount won the first set 6-4 before the Lincoln School duo used a topspin lob technique to great advantage while winning the final two sets, 6-1 and 6-2. The Lynx team has won all three matches this season between the No. 1 doubles squads of the Division I powers.

Broncos earn first win

October 22, 2011

BURRILLVILLE – It was a day that Kevin Deschamps and his Burrillville teammates soon won’t forget.
Deschamps finished with 202 rushing yards on 14 attempts with four touchdowns as the Burrillville picked up its first win of the season, blowing past Scituate, 45-6, in a non-leaguer Saturday at Alumni Field.
“It was great to see the kids enjoy today,” said Broncos head coach Gennaro Ferraro, whose team has absorbed more than its fair share of close setbacks. “It was nice to see all that hard work pay off.”

Mounties fall to red-hot Lions, 3-1

October 21, 2011

LINCOLN — On paper, there’s not much that separates the top two teams in Division II-North – Lincoln High and Mount St. Charles Academy.
On the field Friday afternoon, the numbers didn’t lie.
The first-place Lions scored all of the offense it would need and then held off a very-determined Mount squad in the second half to post a 3-1 win at Manville Park.
With three games left on its schedule, the victory improved Lincoln’s league record to 14-1-0 and all but secured it the II-North crown. The second-place Mounties dropped to 10-2-0 with still six games remaining.
