Seach for next PawSox manager still ongoing

December 2, 2010

It appears the Red Sox are leaving no stone unturned as the search for the next PawSox manager remains ongoing. The position has been vacant for nearly a month, yet the organization remains mum on whom Torey Lovullo’s successor will be.
As BoSox farm director Mike Hazen explained Thursday, finding the next Pawtucket manager is a decision best not entered into lightly and one that requires a great deal of homework.

Chieftains shock Villa Novans

December 2, 2010

WOONSOCKET — After watching host Woonsocket High rattle off six straight points in less than a minute early in the second half of Thursday’s non-league, season-opener, Ponaganset coach Mike Girard called a timeout.
Just before his squad returned back to the floor, Girard told his players one last thing – “Games like this,” he said, “can turn in two minutes.”
He was right. And fortunately for him, it was his Chieftains that turned it around.

Brave new world for Lincoln hockey

December 2, 2010

When the Rhode Island Interscholastic League decided to dissolve the seven-team Division I-A circuit in boys’ hockey during the offseason, that left Lincoln High with an interesting dilemma.
Do the Lions, who were 13-4-1 and state finalists a season ago, drop down to Division II and become the clear-cut favorites to win that championship? Or do the Lions take a bold step up the ladder and compete with the state’s premier teams in Division I?

Woonsocket vs. Tolman: What a duel this will be!

December 1, 2010

Sunday’s Division II Super Bowl game between unbeaten (in league play) Tolman and defending champion Woonsocket needs no hype from the media. These two teams stand on their own merits.

Woonsocket earns return trip to Super Bowl

December 1, 2010

WOOD RIVER JUNCTION — Chariho High got off to a very good start, but Woonsocket High pulled off a fantastic finish.
The Villa Novans scored a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns and saw their lights-out defense force the Chargers to turn the ball over on their final four series in a 21-7 semifinal-round victory on Tuesday night on the Chargers’ turf that put them back into the Division II Super Bowl.

Moses Brown too much for Lincoln, 21-0

December 1, 2010

PROVIDENCE — During the league season last month, Lincoln High had its way with Moses Brown and handed its Division III foe its first loss of the fall.
Let’s just say the Quakers took that defeat personal.
In the more-important rematch between the two squads — a semifinal tilt on Tuesday night — Moses Brown returned the favor with a convincing 21-0 blanking of the Lions at Brown University’s Berylson Field.

Northmen fall to EWG in 2 OTs

December 1, 2010

WEST GREENWICH — The North Smithfield football threw a lot of punches and had the champ on the ropes.
But just when it looked like the champ was done, they found a way.
The Northmen threw – literally and figureatively – everything they had at Exeter-West Greenwich, but couldn’t close out the defending Division IV champions in overtime, coming up one yard short in the second OT as North Smithfield fell 44-38 in the D-IV semifinals Tuesday night.

N.S. duels EWG in first playoff encounter

November 28, 2010

NORTH SMITHFIELD – On paper, it appears unbeaten Mount Pleasant and once-beaten Exeter/West Greenwich are the favorites to meet in the Division IV Super Bowl.
On the field, coaches from both schools are not overlooking third-place North Smithfield, which lost close games on the road to the two teams ahead of them in the standings.
The Northmen dropped a 26-22 verdict to EWG back on Oct. 9 and then hung tough with Mount Pleasant on Nov. 6, falling by a 28-22 score to a Kilties team that outscored its opponents 291-103 during the regular season.

Kenwood, '78 track team among inductees at CHS Hall of Fame Friday night

November 27, 2010

With its stone-bricked structure and its round towers, the Cranston Street Armory resembled a castle.
Inside the dingy old building in the west end of Providence, it was anything but a castle. The former site of indoor track for the Rhode Island Interscholastic League housed a 176-yard wooden oval whose loose boards often creaked. On any given wintry night, heat was sometimes an option and the excessive dust that floated around the air would burn your throat.

Woonsocket battles Chariho in Div. II semifinals on Tuesday

November 27, 2010

WOONSOCKET — Woonsocket High is holding one major ace in the hole heading into Tuesday night’s Division II semifinal showdown against Chariho.
The Villa Novans’ defense comes to play every game, and gives up touchdowns only on the rarest of occasions. Woonsocket shut out six opponents this year and allowed only 20 points in eight games against Division II foes this season. Division II-B champion Tolman dented Woonsocket for one score in a 6-0 win back in September and Mount Hope collected 14 in a 34-14 loss in late October.
