March 20, 2015


NORTH SMITHFIELD  –  Through the opening two stanzas, North Smithfield High’s icemen failed to exhibit the high-flying style of play that helped them crush East Providence by identical 8-0 scores in its R.I. Division II Tournament quarterfinal sweep last weekend.

The reason: Narragansett played a more aggressive, physical type of hockey, one that kept the top-seeded Northmen off kilter for a complete 30 minutes in this highly-entertaining semifinal opener held Friday night.
