Cumberland head coach looks back at days as St. Raphael coordinator

September 27, 2012

A coordinator’s duties seem to be the attention grabber on a résumé, the kind that allows a deserving candidate to push to the top of the list whenever head coaching opportunities surface.

Mother gets better of daughter as Broncos top 'Bolts

September 27, 2012

BURRILLVILLE — Mere seconds after Burrillville High had sailed to a 4-0 Division II-North victory over Cranston East on Thursday afternoon, players – as is standard fare – walked the sideline closest to the team benches and issued other high-fives while stating over and over “Good game.”
When it got to the head coaches, the Broncos’ Susan Burgess looked at the Thunderbolt’s Sarah Knowlton and offered something undecipherable.
Burgess then placed her arm around her and grinned, and Knowlton responded with a smile before the two embraced right at the midfield stripe.

C.F. booters defeat Cumberland, remain unbeaten

September 26, 2012

CUMBERLAND – Central Falls High head coach Carl Africo doesn't ask former mentor Bobby Marchand to help him out with scouting, but – if he's going to offer – the former isn't about to argue.
Prior to the Warriors' Division I tilt against Cumberland on Wednesday night, Marchand told Africo he had seen the Clippers play at Barrington earlier in the week, and told him that junior striker Kyle Courtney had the speed and ball skills to be a thorn in CF's defensive side.

Clippers cross country teams grab four wins each

September 25, 2012

CUMBERLAND — Head coach Tom Kenwood had an outstanding reason as to why he kept his top four Cumberland High harriers, including probable All-State junior Trevor Crawley and classmate Kevin Seaver, from competing in a Northern Division meet featuring four other Valley squads.
“I’m trying to minimize the number of races they run in the season to keep them fresh; I want them to be ready when the bigger meets come up,” Kenwood stated simply.

Burrillville stumbles in 14-6 loss to Narragansett

September 22, 2012

BURRILLVILLE — If ever there’s a team that’s in need of a bye week, it’s Burrillville.
The Broncos don’t play again until Saturday, Oct. 6 – exactly two weeks from Saturday’s tough-to-swallow 14-6 setback to Division III rival Narragansett. Burrillville heads into its long respite at 0-2 in league play while Narragansett was able to pull even at 1-1 on the young campaign.

Woonsocket’s backs run over Warwick Vets, 35-6

September 22, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Carnell Henderson admitted his Woonsocket High players were more than down-in-the-mouth about suffering a 43-6 pasting to powerhouse Johnston in its Division II opener last week, but claimed they seemed ready to move on during workouts this past week.
He called the quintet of practice sessions “very good” for a variety of reasons, but one kept coming to the fore.

Reward for a job well done: Beyeler, Sauveur to join Red Sox’ staff for rest of season

September 20, 2012

PAWTUCKET — The time-honored tradition of seeing the manager of the Pawtucket Red Sox receive a “job well done” seal of approval in the form of a September promotion to Boston remains alive and well. The only difference is that this time, skipper Arnie Beyeler will be joined by a valued member of his coaching staff.

Several area football squads seek to avoid 0-2 league start

September 20, 2012

One of the more fascinating stat lines stems from how many NFL teams end up qualifying for the playoffs after starting out 0-2.
A blog entry that appeared on the New York Times’ website earlier this week noted that, since 1990, “only 22 of the 184 teams that started the season 0-2 ultimately made the playoffs.” Referencing back to when the league last expanded in 2002, just 10.1 percent of the 79 teams saddled with a donut and exactly two “L’s” were able to right the ship and achieve postseason status.

September 19, 2012

CUMBERLAND — Looks like this new Division II thing is suiting Cumberland just fine.
After years of struggling in the Division I ranks and winning no more than five games in each of the last eight seasons, the Clippers are thriving in the state’s second division and off to their best start in recent memory.

PawSox fall to Reno Aces in AAA title game, 10-3

September 18, 2012

DURHAM, N.C. – For a team that has enjoyed a champagne bath or two in recent weeks, this was not the ending the Pawtucket Red Sox had in mind.
The International League champion PawSox felt the sting of the Pacific Coast League’s best Tuesday night as Reno romped to the Triple-A National Championship, 10-3, at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
