October 20, 2011

PAWTUCKET – As St. Raphael Academy discovered on Thursday night, there’s a reason why Burrillville has surrendered a division-low seven goals this season.

October 19, 2011

At the end of November, these could be potential semifinal-round playoff contests, but this weekend, they are merely two regular-season games that highlight the Blackstone Valley’s high school schedule.
In what may arguably be the game of the weekend in the entire state, East Providence heads to Warwick on Friday for a 7 p.m. showdown of 3-1 squads with defending Division I champ Bishop Hendricken at the Hawks’ Hayden Field. Both teams are in a three-way tie for second place with Cranston West (3-1) and right behind La Salle (4-0).
