WOONSOCKET – Like a two-minute offense, life has moved fast lately for Brian Bouley and the rest of the Woonsocket High School football team.
Instead of returning to his familiar post as the Villa Novans’ defensive coordinator – Bouley’s position for the past decade – he was asked to step into the breech and serve as interim head coach. The void was created after Carnell Henderson resigned to become the Cass Ave. school’s principal.
DURHAM, N.C. -- For the second time in three years, the Pawtucket Red Sox are Governors’ Cup champions.
The Sox earned a 4-1 victory Saturday night to take the deciding Game 5 of a razor-close championship series against Durham, at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. It marked the Pawtucket's fourth International League championship in franchise history.
CUMBERLAND – If not for Cumberland High’s success in Division II over the past few years, it would’ve been a treat to watch it face traditional II-B rival St. Raphael Academy.
But the Clippers – after claiming the D-II Super Bowl crown two seasons ago before dropping the championship contest to West Warwick late last fall – rose to the top tier earlier this year.
DURHAM, N.C. â€“ After dropping a heartbreaking, 4-3, 11-inning loss at McCoy Stadium late Wednesday night, the Pawtucket Red Sox were hell-bent on evening the score against the Durham Bulls in the third game of the best-of-five Governors' Cup finals set 24 hours later.
PAWTUCKET – One down, two to go.
Cumberland American Little League coaches and players acknowledge the applause from the Fenway Park crowd prior to Friday night's Blue Jays-Red Sox game. Joining the New England champs is Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster.
PAWTUCKET – Taking center stage following two rather quiet Injury Fund scrimmages, Tolman High all but set Max Read Field’s gridiron on fire Friday night during a 25-7 romp over Cumberland.
PAWTUCKET — During the regular season, Pawtucket Red Sox righty Matt Barnes was 2-1 in three starts with a bloated 7.18 ERA.
But any resemblance between the regular-season Barnes and the post-season Barnes was pure coincidence.

PAWTUCKET -- Garin Cecchini didn’t exactly crush the ball in the 10th inning Wednesday night. But his three-hop single over a drawn-in infield gave the Pawtucket Red Sox a 2-1 victory over the Syracuse Chiefs in Game 1 of a best-of-five Governors’ Cup semifinal series.
Game 2 is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Thursday with a pair of right-handers on the mound – Syracuse’s Scott McGregor (1-2, 3.91 ERA) and Pawtucket’s Matt Barnes (8-9, 3.95 ERA).
