Ponaganset battles for playoff berth against SRA

November 2, 2011

A not-so-funny thing happened to St. Raphael and Ponaganset on their way to sewing up the Division II-B’s final two playoff spots.
The Saints and Chieftains, who were each just one victory away from clinching berths last weekend and taking on two teams with paper-thin hopes of reaching the playoffs, were instead the victims of two mild upset losses.
Last Friday night, the Chieftains (3-3), who were visiting a Pilgrim team (3-3) that got socked in its three losses to Tolman, West Warwick, and SRA, found themselves dropping a 26-12 verdict.

McGair: Would PC men ever consider playing games at Alumni Hall?

November 1, 2011

Dreamers can always dream big. It’s a birthright that can’t be stripped away, regardless if this figment of one’s creative tanks comes off as either practical or far-fetched.
How do dreams take flight? Obviously we don’t fit the description of a neuroscientist, yet we’ll let you in on the origin behind this particular thought process.
Go back to last week and the exhibition contest between Providence College and Assumption that was played at Alumni Hall. As the game progressed, the more serious we started lending support to this: What if the Friars played a handful of games on campus?

October 31, 2011
