Strong second period lifts MSC hockey past Hamden, Conn.

February 8, 2014

WOONSOCKET — It may have been a non-league tilt, but it might as well have been a league game against La Salle or Hendricken.

Mount St. Charles played one of its best periods of the winter against Hamden (Conn.) High in the middle session on Saturday night, notching three goals. In the end, the Mounties celebrated a 4-2 victory at Adelard Arena.

Cumberland’s Fine makes it official, will join father at Bryant

February 5, 2014

CUMBERLAND — The opportunity for a father to coach his son in a college setting does not come around very often.

For Cumberland High senior Joe Fine, you can officially swap out “opportunity” and replace it with “reality.”
Beginning this fall, there will be two Fines on the football sideline occupied by Bryant University. Head coach Marty Fine listed son Joe as part of the program’s latest recruiting effort on Wednesday. The Bulldogs’ 22-player class includes players from 10 different states with 11 being from New England.

Ready to fly like an Eagle: Lincoln’s Saine heads to Boston College football program

February 5, 2014

LINCOLN — Oseh-Lie Saine is officially a member of Boston College’s football program. In the eyes of the 2013 Lincoln High graduate who signed a pretty important document Wednesday, it’s a significant step that runs the gamut of emotions.

“It feels really, really good,” a clearly jubilant Saine expressed when reached later the same day. “It’s a day I’ve been waiting for a long time and for it to finally come, it hit me (Tuesday night) and I was just like, ‘wow.’ Signing that paper just felt great. It’s real and I think I’m still on cloud nine.”

With Hervieux back, Lincoln/Cumberland co-op girls' hockey squad pursues return to postseason

February 5, 2014

LINCOLN — Although she didn't want to, Lauren Hervieux did a lot of watching from the sidelines as her Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op teammates competed.
Naturally, the premier senior defenseman would've preferred to take the ice with them and help in her usual ways – battling in the corners, stealing pucks, squelching 2-on-1 breakaways.
She couldn't, of course, after dislocating and fracturing her kneecap at a Lincoln varsity soccer practice back on Nov. 7, the afternoon before a pivotal state tournament semifinal.

BC lists Saine as a defensive end who measures out at 6-foot-4, 265 pounds. He played a post-graduate year at Worcester Academy this past autumn.

Friars can’t dig out from Red Storm, lose 86-76

February 4, 2014

PROVIDENCE – The beauty of this new Big East arrangement is that teams are guaranteed two regular season meetings.

If you stub your toe in the first meeting, fear not. There’s a rematch on the docket.

Tuesday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center had that “nice to see you again” ring to it. Providence and St. John’s had already staged one hardwood confrontation with the Friars squeezing out a one-point win in double overtime. That game took place last month at Carnesecca Arena.

Town budget battle could threaten spring sports in North Smithfield

February 3, 2014

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Long before Mike Cicerone began his senior year at North Smithfield High, he had thought out his plan for it.

Already the starting quarterback, he would be the Class of 2014 President, would play a key role on the varsity basketball team that last winter clinched the R.I. Division II title with a perfect 24-0 record and – come springtime, just weeks before Graduation Day – would be a starter for head coach Jon Leddy’s baseball squad.

Merger complete, Woonsocket Little League sets sail for brave new world

February 1, 2014

WOONSOCKET --- Like everyone else, Lisa Godfrin has not been a big fan of the bitter cold temperatures and occasional snow that have made January a frigid month to bear.

And like everyone else, she would love nothing more than to see much warmer weather, green grass, birds chirping, and a chance to enjoy the outdoors once again.

But Godfrin has an extra reason as to why she’s counting down the days until spring – the start of baseball season for the unified Woonsocket Little League.

Rodriguez powers Shea past Hope for 30-21 win

January 31, 2014

WARWICK – Lincoln didn’t take the ice for its Division II crossover affair with Pilgrim on Friday night bitter from its first loss of the season, a 2-1 defeat to undefeated longtime rival Cumberland two nights earlier that snapped the Lions’ 35-game unbeaten streak.
Judging by the way the Lions played, you would have thought they had big chips on their shoulders.

The Lions scored six times in the final nine minutes of the first period and never let their foot off the accelerator as they trounced the one-win Patriots, 11-2, in a crossover contest at Thayer Arena.

January 30, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Late Monday night, the Mount St. Charles girls’ indoor squad captured for the second straight winter the Dwyer Division crown, courtesy of 92 points, 14 more than runner-up Narragansett High.

It did so with only two event victories, with junior quad-captain Angela Dansereau grabbing the lone individual title in the 55-meter hurdles (9.42) at the Providence Career & Technical Academy field house.
