WOONSOCKET – For Mount St. Charles, the opportunity to unseat the reigning dynasty in Rhode Island high school girls’ volleyball is hand.
BRISTOL -- Immediately after the final whistle had sounded, Cumberland High’s players jogged back to embrace their goalkeeper, junior Michaela Simanski.
WOONSOCKET – Woonsocket exercised some past playoff demons Monday and in the same process punched its ticket to the Division III semifinals.
WOONSOCKET – Swirling winds and a tenacious North Smithfield defense gave Mount St. Charles all it could handle for 73 minutes on Monday, but the Mounties came away with a hard-earned 2-1 victory in their Division II quarterfinal match.
BURRILLVILLE -- For Burrillville High, Saturday’s easier-than-anticipated 28-7 Division IV triumph over gritty Smithfield gave it a couple of firsts, at least when it comes to recent history.
WOONSOCKET – Momodou Mbaye and his Shea High teammates were in a festive mood after dominating Woonsocket, 20-6, Saturday at cold and rain-swept Barry Field.
PROVIDENCE – Ed Cooley freely admits that he has not settled on a concrete starting five. Luckily for the Providence College coach, the regular season doesn’t tip off for another two weeks.
Three-fifths of the lineup appears set with LaDontae Henton, Carson Desrosiers and Tyler Harris making up the frontcourt. Based on Cooley’s optimism with regards to Kris Dunn’s quest to ramp up to game speed after a lengthy layoff, it’s appears safe to mention the redshirt sophomore in a starting capacity.
EAST GREENWICH – Cumberland High head coach Stefanie Capone-Bello didn’t have to give her contingent a history lesson prior to its R.I. Division II Tournament contest with Chariho Regional on Thursday evening, but chose to anyway.
NEWPORT – Rogers High exploded for three goals in the opening session and cruised past pesky Woonsocket, 4-1, in a R.I. Division III Tournament preliminary clash on Thursday.
Amazingly, Sarah Morris managed a hat trick in that first half alone before manufacturing another unassisted tally in the last.
Juliana DiMeglio also helped out the Vikings (now 11-2-2 overall) with three saves, while Sabrina Dubois earned seven in the defeat.
NORTH SMITHFIELD – The seventh-ranked Northmen, making the most of an extreme wind advantage over the final 40 minutes, recorded three unanswered goals and coasted to a 5-2 victory over No. 10 Narragansett before a hearty crowd at the host’s stadium.
