Lavallee delivers 'satisfying' outing at CVS 5K

September 18, 2011

PROVIDENCE — The training has been going well, but the weekly mileage is about a third of what he’s accustomed to.
Nursing a knee injury for the better part of the year, a stress fracture that has derailed his training targeted towards a possible trip to the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials, Roland Lavallee wasn’t looking at setting any kind of PRs at the CVS Caremark Downtown 5K. He was just at Sunday’s race to help his teammates and test his legs on the five-kilometer course.
The results were satisfying.

Ponaganset rolls past Toll Gate, 38-0

September 17, 2011

WARWICK — Mistakes were made by Ponaganset High in its Division II-B opener against Toll Gate on Saturday. In the first half alone, the Chieftains committed 14 penalties, two of which negated touchdowns.
Still, despite the numerous yellow flags tossed, it was smooth sailing for the Chieftains, who scored four times in the initial half and cruised to a dominating 38-0 triumph over the Titans. Senior quarterback Chris Larabee tossed for two touchdowns, senior Sam Fasano rushed for a pair of scores and junior Scott Peterson also found the end zone twice for the Chieftains.

Turnovers doom North Smithfield in loss to Hope

September 17, 2011

PROVIDENCE — North Smithfield’s resurgent football program took a step backwards on Saturday afternoon, turning the ball over five times during an 18-10 loss to Hope High.
“Extremely frustrating,” Northmen coach Wes Pennington said when asked to describe what he had just seen. “We fought hard but you can’t win football games turning the ball over like that.”
Fresh off a season-opening 55-26 romp over Burrillville, the Northmen entered their Division IV opener seeking to maintain the momentum built by the 2010 squad that qualified for the playoffs with a 6-2 league record.

Patriots leave Villa Novans feeling blue

September 17, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Two-time defending Division II champion Woonsocket High faces a loaded Tolman squad next weekend in a rematch of last year’s Super Bowl.
The preparation for the big showdown at Barry Field will be thorough for the Villa Novans. Chances are that workload will be intensified slightly more after their II-B opener against visiting Pilgrim Saturday afternoon.

Cumberland holds on for 14-7 win over Shea

September 16, 2011

PAWTUCKET — This is a victory that Cumberland High soon won’t forget.
Boasted by a strong defense that came up huge when it mattered most, Cumberland held on for a 14-7 final against Shea High in the Division II-A for both schools Friday night at Max Read Field. The Clippers scored the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter behind a one-yard run by Ryan Gaumond – one of two in the contest – before surviving a frantic finish in which the Raiders let a first-and-goal opportunity at the Cumberland 4 with less than a minute remaining slip through their grasp.

Lincoln girls soccer team beats Woonsocket, 4-0

September 16, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Lincoln High was a state runner-up last year in Division II and lost five players from that squad, but it has a solid nucleus that has come back.
After back-to-back state crowns in Div. IV, Woonsocket was moved up two divisions last fall and struggled with just one victory. This season’s team has some talented players, but is still fairly young.

Northmen booted by North Providence

September 15, 2011

NORTH PROVIDENCE --- One not-so-great half of soccer resulted in North Smithfield High’s first loss of the season on Thursday afternoon.
North Providence High received a pair of second-half goals from Alexander Mendoza to break a 1-1 tie and soar to a 3-1 triumph over the Northmen in their battle of Division III-North unbeatens at the Ricci Athletic Complex.

Could be record-setting day at CVS race

September 15, 2011

PROVIDENCE - Besides looking at the thousands of runners and walkers lined on Francis Street for the start of the CVS Caremark Downtown 5K, there’s something else that puts a smile on the face of race director Charlie Breagy.
It’s good weather.

Woonsocket coaching staff pulling together

September 14, 2011

Carnell Henderson is aware of the burden he’s placed on his Woonsocket assistant coaches. The head coach, who continues to come along after undergoing surgery in early August to repair a torn tendon in quadriceps muscle of his left leg, knows that just like the players have to step up their game whenever there’s an absence, so too does his staff.
The idea is to keep things as close to the status quo as possible until Henderson returns to the sidelines, which he is optimistic will happen this season.
