WOONSOCKET – After suffering a difficult-to-swallow 2-1, eight-inning loss to North Smithfield High on Saturday afternoon, Mount St. Charles faced elimination in the R.I. Division II/Region II Tournament entering its losers’ bracket tilt against Prout on Monday.

That’s why skipper Tom Seaver took his players aside beforehand and explained his game plan for the Crusaders.

“We had two goals (Monday): The first was to win and stay alive, and the second to keep (junior hurler) John Cutler off the mound for as long as possible,” he noted. “We almost waited too long, but – in the end – we got the job done.”

The Mounties, seeded second from the North in this regional, jumped out to a 6-0 cushion after the first, watched Prout’s tough lineup fight back to tie it at 7 apiece, but eventually secured a wild, satisfying 10-7 triumph before perhaps 100 fans at its home diamond.
