WOONSOCKET â€“ Itâ€™s bad enough that the wins have come at a minimum this season â€“ one league victory in the first seven games to be exact.
Now, head coach Kyle Ivey-Jones and his Woonsocket High squad are playing with somewhat of a depleted roster. Minus a handful of players that have decided to call it quits this winter, including starting guard Jessie Charette, the Villa Novans came up short once again on Monday night.
