WOONSOCKET â This is how Mount St. Charles sophomore Brian Larence celebrated an amazing 3-2, double-overtime victory over La Salle Academy on Monday night:
While his teammates went ballistic on the ice, exchanging hugs and high-fives, Larence skated to the chain-link fence near the Mountiesâ bench at Adelard Arena and fist-bumped schoolmates with his right-handed glove.
He then shed his stick, bent over, grabbed some snow off the ice and threw it at those fans, still going berserk at what they had just witnessed.
PROVIDENCE â In the end, it wasnât meant to be for head coach Alisha Brannon and her North Smithfield squad.
Despite North Smithfield putting forth a gutsy and determined effort in the face of long odds, the Northmen saw their season come to a close Monday night in the Division III semifinals at Rhode Island College.
Led by 29 points from senior Sandy Kun, top seed and unbeaten Juanita Sanchez held on for a 53-49 victory.

PROVIDENCE â 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.

PROVIDENCE â Just days before the start of the R.I. Division I Tournament championship series between the Burrillville and Barrington co-op squads, Broncos head coach Marc Brissette and his son spent some time shuffling through some old newspapers, just to reminisce.
They came upon one that highlighted the premier PGA careers of the Ocean Stateâs Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade.
âI knew we were facing Sophie Faxon, the Barrington goalie and Bradâs daughter, in the finals, and I told my son, âHow ironic is that?ââ Brissette stated. âI also said, âI hope itâs not an omen.ââ
PROVIDENCE â George Coderre knows the drill. As the head coach at Woonsocket High, Coderre studies the game from his sideline perch while his mind races with various adjustment schemes. Obviously the idea is to outsmart the opposition, which Coderreâs club was able to do for most of Sundayâs playoff exercise against Westerly High.
