March 5, 2011

SMITHFIELD — Mount St. Charles received a nice double treat on Saturday night.

North Smithfield skaters sweep La Salle Academy

March 5, 2011

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Two players who combined to score just five goals during the regular season came up huge with the two biggest goals of the year for North Smithfield High on Saturday night.
Lauren Ledoux’s game-tying goal with 7:57 to play in the game and Samantha Archambault’s game-winner with 1:02 to go led the Northmen to their second 3-2 triumph in as many nights and a best-of-three quarterfinal-round sweep of La Salle Academy at the Rhode Island Sports Center.

La Salle routs defending titlist Woonsocket, 61-33

March 5, 2011

PROVIDENCE — The time seemed appropriate for reflection, not reliving the course of events that transpired Saturday afternoon on the campus of Rhode Island College.
Certainly it wasn’t the ending George Coderre and his proud Woonsocket squad envisioned. A La Salle team that was superior in just about every tangible category ended the Villa Novans’ glorious run at the top, 61-33, in the Division I quarterfinals. The game pitted last year’s championship combatants, with the Novans taking the title by a 40-34 count.

WOONSOCKET – It went from a motor vehicle chase to a foot chase – down the steep, rocky banks of the Blackstone River.

Lady Broncos rout Warwick in playoff opener

March 4, 2011

BURRILLVILLE – The expected quarterfinal mismatch occurred at Levy Rink Friday night as No. 3 seed Burrillville/Ponaganaset co-op skated to a routine 6-1 decision over sixth-seeded Warwick co-op. Junior Kelsey Koprusak and senior Katie Couture each scored twice for the Lady Broncos.
But if the inevitable happens and the Broncos take the series and advance to a semifinal date with powerhouse Bay View Academy early next week, head coach Gary Rouleau is hoping to see a much better effort than their playoff opener.

Kiernan's OT goals shocks La Salle

March 4, 2011

KINGSTON – Fifth-seeded North Smithfield survived a tight, back-and-forth battle with No. 4 seed La Salle Academy in its Division I quarterfinal matchup Friday night, leaving Boss Arena with a 3-2 overtime win in the best-of-3 series.
High-scoring senior Kayla Kiernan netted the game-winner when she scored just four minutes into the OT period off the Rams’ standout goalie Holly Scott. Keirnan tally came after several attempts by the Northmen near the crease.
“It was a mess in front of the net,” said N.S. coach Bill Nangle. “We just kept banging away and she scored on the five-hole.”

Mounties, Clippers win playoff openers

March 4, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles seized control early in this one en route to a 7-2 triumph over Smithfield in Game 1 of the best-of-three quarterfinals Friday night at Adelard Arena. The three-time defending state champion Mounties can close out the series with a win tonight (puck drops a 8 o’clock) at the Smithfield Ice Rink.
A win would give venerable MSC head coach Bill Belisle an even 900 in his illustrious career on the bench.
