Northmen unable to slow down Blue Wave

September 15, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Through film study, North Smithfield High head coach Wes Pennington attempted to warn his players of the peril they were bound to face Saturday afternoon at Adams-Clanton Morgan Football Field.
Alas, what the Northmen saw on video came to life right before their very eyes.

Clippers' 'D' comes up big in 28-0 shutout of Central

September 14, 2012

CUMBERLAND --- Give Cumberland’s ‘D’ an ‘A’ for its excellent performance against Central on Friday night.
The Clippers limited the speedy Knights to just 117 yards of offense and only two trips inside Cumberland’s 30 en route to a well-deserved shutout and a 28-0 victory in their Division II-B meeting at Tucker Field.
Offensively, senior quarterback Brendan Guerin also earned high grades spinning the laces, completing 11 of his 18 passes for 129 yards and three touchdowns, but the story of this night was the Clippers’ defense.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: PawSox capture Governors' Cup

September 13, 2012

FORT MILL, S.C. – When you cut right to the heart of the matter, it’s pretty fitting that the Pawtucket Red Sox completed their ascension to the top of the International League mountain in the very same stadium that served as the launching point for a two-plus week stretch of unprecedented success.

At long last, league play has arrived for area high school football squads

September 13, 2012

Now the games count.
The preseason scrimmages, Injury Fund contests, and last weekend’s non-league openers are all history. Now the high school football games, pitting division opponents against each other, mean something in the standings.
And they get under way tonight, with eight league games scattered throughout the state, and one, a Division IV contest between North Smithfield and Hope, taking place tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. in Providence.

PawSox one win away from Governors' Cup championship

September 12, 2012

PAWTUCKET – PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler likes to point out that each playoff game has been the equivalent of a box of chocolates – you just never know who’s going to play the role of hero on a given night.
Wednesday saw Pawtucket’s battery of pitcher Zach Stewart and catcher Dan Butler step to the forefront and take their bows. Their induction into the club’s ever-expanding legion of primetime performers was officially cemented after PawSox silenced the Charlotte Knights, 2-0, in Game Two of the Governors’ Cup finals before an audience of 3,525.

Brentz's sliding plays key role in PawSox's wins

September 12, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Lately, much attention has been paid to the hitting exploits of Bryce Brentz – deservedly so, too.
The outfield prospect carried a .471 postseason average into Game Two of the Governors’ Cup Championship Series, a figure buoyed by a little bit of everything from two home runs to two doubles to five runs batted in.

Pawtucket Red Sox pitchers find balance between Governors’ Cup finals, possible callup to Boston

September 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Focusing on depth, along with the current state of Boston’s maxed-out pitching staff, there are several intriguing options on the Pawtucket Red Sox that the parent club is undoubtedly keeping close tabs upon.
Some of these additional pieces are already included on the 40-man roster, like Zach Stewart and Pedro Beato. For those in the non-inclusive position, such as Alex Wilson and Nelson Figueroa, some manipulating of the roster would have to transpire before they could become eligible to pitch for Boston.

Volleyball Mounties make quick work of Townies

September 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Ever since Mount St. Charles made the move to Division I two seasons ago, the Mounties have hooked up with Division I-North foe East Providence to play in some competitive matches, with both sides bringing out their very best brand of volleyball.
On Monday night, the Mounties and Townies renewed acquaintances, but to the dismay of the fans that packed the Mounties’ gymnasium, they saw two teams trying to shake off their early season cobwebs and overcome more than their share of errors.
