Fugere nets 1,000th point in Novans' loss to Eagles

December 22, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Turnovers will hurt you.
When you do it against an evenly-matched team, it will often be the difference in the game.
Woonsocket High committed more than its share of mental miscues on Thursday night and suffered its first loss of the season, convincingly, as visiting Barrington left Savaria Gymnasium with a 51-32 victory in an intense Division I contest. The Eagles work underneath the basket on both ends of the court was particularly troublesome for the Villa Novans.

Checking in on PawSox's offseason moves

December 21, 2011

At this stage of baseball’s offseason, the headlines are typically reserved for the big-ticket acquisition and the occasional blockbuster trade.
Behind that glitzy curtain is where you’ll find new Red Sox farm director Ben Crockett. His mission is to replenish the upper levels of the farm system with players who will hold down the fort in Triple-A Pawtucket, ready to contribute if injury besets one of the major-league starters.

R.I. high school sports pit 'haves' vs. 'have-nots'

December 21, 2011

Looking back on the 2011 sports year, my most vivid memories relate to a Shea High boys soccer team that dazzled opponents with its talent, ball skills and exuberance for the sport.
The Raiders made soccer fun to watch, even for a traditional sports fan like myself who is more attuned to football than “futbol.”

Clippers flying high in Division II-North

December 20, 2011

WOONSOCKET -- The senior class is one of its smallest in a number of years.
The number of players that graduated from last season’s Division II-North championship club, including six of the top eight scorers and one of the finest goaltenders in the team’s history, was one of its largest.
And several players who are featured in key positions have little or no varsity experience.
But despite all this, Cumberland has been the talk of the division and the area’s only team with a ‘0’ in the loss column.

Davies girls suffer first loss

December 19, 2011

LINCOLN – Joe Handy has been coaching long enough to know that when you take over a program for the first time the transition period isn’t always going to be easy. With a new coach and a new system, it’s not always going to be smooth.
In his first year at Davies Tech after two decades at Central Falls, including 10 as the head coach, Handy experienced one of those lumps on Monday.

Cumberland wrestlers rule Lancer Invitational

December 18, 2011

WILLIMANTIC, Ct. – Cumberland High walked away with the team championship at Saturday’s Lancer Invitational, crowning two individual champions and seeing a third wrestler, Erik Travers, have victory stolen away from him by some sloppy officiating.
Jon Maccini (138) and Tom Lacroix (195) claimed individual titles for the Clippers, who accumulated 220 team points to run away with the title over runnerup Southington (Ct.), which took second place with 166 points.

Cumberland hockey team improves to 5-0

December 18, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Mike Kinch must consider Lynch Arena his home ice.
The Cumberland High senior, whose family has strong ties to Pawtucket, led the Clippers to a 5-2 victory over the SRA-PCD-Wheeler Co-Op team on Saturday night by scoring two goals and assisting on another.
“Mike’s a strong player who skates well and has a good shot,” Cumberland coach Mark Andreozzi said after the game. Kinch now has six goals and nine assists on the season, putting him near the top of the state in points scored.

Jalen Evans sits out indoor track meet

December 17, 2011

PROVIDENCE – The first major meet of the indoor track season was minus one of its fastest runners on Saturday.
Hanging out with his teammates outside the track surface at the Providence Career and Technical Academy field house was Woonsocket High junior Jalen Evans. After competing earlier this week in his first meet since a season-ending foot injury at the start of the football season, Evans was back in street clothes after a minor setback.

Editor's Note: The roundup of Friday night's boys' hockey games will only be found on The Call's website.

WOONSOCKET -- After scoring just eight goals in its first three games, Mount St. Charles broke out in a big way offensively on Friday night.

Kilties outrun Villa Novans

December 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Woonsocket High has some pieces of the puzzle in place but seems to be lacking one key position that would create a competent offensive unit.
“We haven’t had a point guard for two years,” head coach Kyle Ivey-Jones said after his Villa Novans played hard and without much cohesion during a 71-53 loss to Mount Pleasant in the Division I-North opener for both teams on Friday night.
