Mounties hang tough before falling to Oakers in Division I volleyball semifinals

November 7, 2012

KINGSTON --- After handing Mount St. Charles its most lopsided defeat of the regular season, Coventry found a way to deal the Mounties an agonizingly close loss on Wednesday night in the Division I semifinals.
Owners of a 14-13 lead in a back-and-forth fifth and deciding game, the Mounties were unable to tally the magical 15th point that would have sent them to Saturday’s 5 p.m. championship match back at URI’s Keaney Gym.

Unbeaten Burrillville claims Div. II field hockey title

November 5, 2012

BRISTOL — When Burrillville High senior tri-captain Laura Hauser went home after school to grab her uniform Monday afternoon, there was a strange addition next to her jersey, laying right there on her bed.
“It was about 2:30, and I found a lucky penny, with the head up,” she explained. “My mom said she didn't have any idea how it got there. I almost walked out of the house without it; I got to my car, then forgot I didn't have it, so I turned around and raced back to get it.
“I mean, I'm a superstitious person,” she added.

Field hockey Broncos outlast Clippers in Triple OT, earn berth in Division II finals

November 3, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — Throughout the three overtime periods, Burrillville High senior tri-captain Alex LeClair stood in her goalie box physically shaking, not from Saturday evening's chill but from the fear of … dare we say it? Failure.
“I was physically and mentally exhausted, but all of that went away when it finally ended,” she grinned.

Football Novans take down Oakers, secure spot in Division II playoffs

November 3, 2012

WOONSOCKET — What makes the 2012 edition of Woonsocket High so unique is that Carnell Henderson’s Villa Novans have learned to win games in all kinds of ways.
There have been blowouts, close shaves and other instances when the Villa Novans took the field minus a full compliment of healthy bodies. Other times, Woonsocket has been its own worst enemy, turning the ball over at an alarming rate.
That, in turn, allowed the opposition to hang out, a storyline that unfolded before the Novans’ eyes Saturday afternoon at Barry Field.

Upset! Cumberland booters stun Shea, 2-0

November 1, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Head coach Pierre Ridore had several reasons to believe his Shea High squad would reign in a R.I. Division I Tournament preliminary tilt against Cumberland on Thursday afternoon.
First, his Raiders had rolled to a 4-1 victory over the Clippers just nine days before this playoff; second, Ridore's bunch entered the contest with a 6-0-1 mark at home – that is, when it played either at Max Read Field or the McKinnon-Alves Complex – and this would be played at the latter.

Patriots make quick work of Panthers in boys' soccer playoffs

October 31, 2012

LINCOLN — Davies Tech head coach Victor Oliveira usually has an inkling as to how his squad will execute prior to a contest. It’s based on collective attitude, and how they’re conducting themselves.
On Wednesday afternoon, he had no doubt.
Senior tri-captain Paulo Chavez and classmate Daniel Munoz each netted a pair of goals and junior Mauricio Agudelo chipped in a tally and two assists as the sixth-seeded Patriots walloped No. 11-ranked Johnston High, 7-0, in a R.I. Division III Tournament preliminary tilt.
