Co-op teams wave of future in hockey?

December 25, 2011

Some RIIL history was made last March when the Johnston/North Providence team became the first co-op club to win a state championship, doing so when it swept defending champ Mount Hope in their best-of-three Division III title series.
While Johnston/North Providence’s championship didn’t come as much as a surprise -- the team was 14-1-1 during the regular season and the top seed in the playoffs -- it was a bit shocking to see a boys’ co-op squad capture a state crown before a girls’ team.

CVS Charity Golf Classic plays Santa Claus

December 24, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Holiday songs and cheer filled the air at CVS Caremark’s corporate headquarters on Thursday as 64 nonprofit organizations received a much-needed boost from funds generated by the 2011 CVS Caremark Charity Classic. The tournament, Rhode Island’s largest charitable sporting event, this year raised nearly $1.2 million for charities across Rhode Island and Massachusetts, bringing the total funds raised since its inception to more than $15 million.

Mount girls take 7-0 win over Burrillville/Ponaganset

December 24, 2011

WOONSOCKET -- The rematch was a mismatch.
Defending state champion Mount St. Charles, which saw its bid for a perfect regular season come up a game short when the Mounties lost their finale to the Burrillville/Ponaganset co-op team, got a bit of revenge for that defeat in Friday night’s showdown at Adelard Arena.
The Shea sisters, Allison and Caitlin, and Marissa Heroux each scored a pair of goals for Mount in a surprisingly-lopsided 7-0 triumph over the Broncos, a game the hosts dominated from start to finish.

Evangelista, Northmen girls shut down Lions, 4-0

December 23, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- She didn’t have to turn in the same remarkable effort she did in her 58-save performance against Mount St. Charles last weekend, but Britney Evangelista was still outstanding in net for North Smithfield in Friday night’s meeting with Lincoln.
The sophomore netminder turned away 32 shots and frustrated one of the top lines in the state to help the Northmen claim a 4-0 triumph over the first-year Lions at Adelard Arena and snap a five-game losing streak.

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.
