January 28, 2011

WOONSOCKET – With 10 losses in his first 11 league games, Kyle Ivey-Jones isn’t thinking about playoffs anymore. The Woonsocket High coach would just settle for a win.

Twenty-four turnovers by the Novans and a dominating inside presence from the Thunderbolt were the glaring statistics in the latest setback.
