NORTH PROVIDENCE – North Smithfield High veteran head coach Wes Pennington expected a certain determination from his squad as it took on always-gutsy North Providence on Friday night, but what he witnessed soared past his wildest dreams.
PAWTUCKET – You can’t rush perfection – and never was that more true than on Saturday at the Slater Park Mike Kenny Courts, where North Smithfield waited through a three-hour rain delay before they got the chance to cap off a 14-0 dream season.
Once the droplets were dry and the games began, however, the Lady Northmen’s peerless talent shone through, and the team captured their first state D-III championship since 2010 with a 4-0 victory over Chariho.
WOONSOCKET – It was easy to tell there was a lot at stake when Woonsocket High “entertained” Davies Tech in a battle featuring Division III’s top two squads, considering all the jersey-tugging, sliding tackles, hard liners off defenders’ mid-sections and coaches hollering instructions throughout.
That explained the physicality and aggressiveness the two opponents displayed in their efforts to gain supremacy.
