Mounties rally past North Smithfield in second half

December 16, 2010

WOONSOCKET – Scott Colantonio had the look of frustration during the first half of Thursday’s Division III-North encounter with North Smithfield. The Mount St. Charles coach wasn’t upset with the play of his team, but just the fact that the shots simply weren’t falling.
The second half was a different story.
The Mounties shots found the net and their defensive intensity also picked up as they erased a five–point deficit at the break to earn a hard-fought 48-42 victory over the Northmen on their home court. In a well-balanced scoring attack, Pat McCarthy led Mount with 10 points.

Clippers back for more

December 15, 2010

CUMBERLAND — Defending state champion Cumberland is not the early-season favorite to repeat, according to no less an authority than Clippers head coach Steve Gordon.
“Warwick Veterans is loaded,” Gordon was saying on Wednesday morning, a few hours before his Clippers would face North Providence and Mount Hope in a double-dual meet at Pilgrim High. “They finished six points behind us last year in the state meet and didn’t lose anybody.”
