MSC girls force Game 3 in title series with La Salle

March 4, 2012

PROVIDENCE — After his squad's 4-0 loss to La Salle Academy in the first game of the R.I. Championship Division Tournament finals' best-of-three set on Saturday, Mount St. Charles head coach Steve Shea told his kids he loved the fact they had outshot their foes, 30-18.

“I knew we were facing Sophie Faxon, the Barrington goalie and Brad’s daughter, in the finals, and I told my son, ‘How ironic is that?’” Brissette stated. “I also said, ‘I hope it’s not an omen.’”

March 3, 2012
