N.S. survives 57-56 triumph over Islanders, remain unbeaten

January 18, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD -- With all due respect to other Division III squads with title-game aspirations, if another North Smithfield-Middletown matchup isn’t contested in the state final in March, it would be a tragedy.
This one, honestly, was that entertaining.
With 1.8 seconds left in regulation, and the Northmen trailing 50-49, it appeared senior guard Walker Strick had landed a baseline trey to lift the hosts to a thrilling, come-from-behind 52-51 victory over the Islanders.
The two officials, however, indicated the scoreboard was incorrect, and deemed an overtime session necessary.

Rodriguez, his leading scorer and rebounder, had suffered a possible concussion in a loss to Davies Tech on Friday, and Goncalves – another stellar starter – had sustained a laceration to her head in the same tilt.
