Lions meet their match in Div. II finals

June 4, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Lincoln High’s perfect season came to an end at the hands of … a perfect season.
In Saturday’s clash between two unbeaten teams trying to etch their names into the Rhode Island Interscholastic League history books, it was Tiverton that emerged with an unblemished record — and the Division II state championship.
A late second-half comeback fell short for the Lions, who watched the Tigers celebrate a 12-8 victory at Rhode Island College to cap a 17-0 campaign.

Randall, Cumberland win state titles

June 2, 2011

For two days in the hot sun, Cumberland High collectively played its best golf of the season at the RIIL State Championship.
Its efforts were amply rewarded.
Jamison Randall earned the individual title and, along with his teammates, the Clippers captured the team crown on Wednesday afternoon with a four-stroke victory over Portsmouth and North Kingstown at the Cranston Country Club.

Mount blanks Cranston East

June 2, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Mount St. Charles Academy has faced Cranston East in the playoffs in each of the last four years.
Four times, four wins.
The latest of those victories came on Thursday night as the third-seeded Mounties blanked the No. 6 seed Thunderbolts, 3-0, in the Division I quarterfinals. Mount posted scores of 25-18, 25-17, 25-19.

Johnston gets even with Woonsocket

Another do-or-die affair – the fifth such of these playoffs – awaits the Villa Novans Friday afternoon, at stake a berth in next week’s Division II championship series at McCoy Stadium.

For openers, a win Wednesday would go a long way for local ballclubs

May 24, 2011

The high school baseball outfits hailing from Lincoln, Tolman and Woonsocket find themselves in an enviable position – at home, serving as the higher seed in the opening round of the double elimination, regional playoffs, which cuts four ways with four teams comprising each group.
The real key as baseball’s second season gets under way is not specifically tied to home-field advantage. In the case of a double-elimination format, it’s about starting out on the right foot. Win on Wednesday and wait until Friday before resuming the March to McCoy Stadium. That’s called the easy road.

LINCOLN – Jillian DeSimone stood anxiously on the rain-soaked Ferguson Field sidelines, her team’s perfect season hanging in the balance.
If ever there was a time for Lincoln High to prove it was more than a one-player show, this was it.
Playing without DeSimone for most of the second half after the state’s leading goal scorer picked up her yellow card of the game, the Lions rode Ashley Moreau’s five goals and Nina Fournier’s goalkeeping to a 12-9 victory over Cumberland High School on Monday.

Once-woeful Red Sox seem to be situated nicely

May 23, 2011

Some things I think I think:

It didn’t take long for the Boston Red Sox to climb out of that impossible hole all the doomsayers had put them in after they started the season with two wins in their first 12 games. After Sunday night’s win over the Cubs, Boston’s record stood at 25-21 and the Sox were just one-half game out of first place in the American League East.

Lincoln '9' clinches division crown

May 22, 2011

LINCOLN – Just ask anyone associated with the Lincoln High program and they will universally declare the following: Joe Yankee is the quintessential X-factor.
On a team loaded with players ranging from good to very good, Yankee might just be the one Lion whose impact cannot be understated. The junior continued to strengthen said argument Sunday afternoon against a strong Moses Brown offense, striking out seven Quakers in the Lions’ 14-4 mercy-rule thrashing at Chet Nichols Field.

Mount '9' waits to learn playoff fate

May 22, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles will now sit back and see if a 7-11 record will be good enough to gain admittance to the 16-team Division I tournament. The Mounties stated their case one final time Sunday with a 2-1 win against Cumberland High. Garrett Hayward was the difference maker, blasting an inside-the-park two-run home run in the last of the sixth inning off of Cumberland ace Justin Patrick.
