EAST PROVIDENCE â€” No one considers himself more of an â€śOcean Staterâ€ť than Peter Frost.
Never was that more evident than Thursday evening, when Frost â€” as President/Chief Executive Officer of ATW Companies Inc. of Warwick â€” hosted a Grand Opening celebration of a new manufacturing business named Parmatech-Proform Corp., located at 825 Waterman Ave.
There was no hiding Frost's elation as he introduced the new 25,000 square-foot site to Gov. Donald Carcieri, General Treasurer/gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Mayor Joseph Larisa and other honored guests.
WEST WARWICK â€” Every-one Tolman has faced, and will face, is well aware of the teamâ€™s defensive prowess. The tenacious unit entered Saturdayâ€™s Division II-B matchup against West Warwick having allowed the second fewest points (12) in league play, while posting three shutouts.
A typical Division II playoff scramble is developing with two weeks left in the regular season schedule.
This is the lone league that features an eight-team playoff field. Division II possesses 16 teams, almost double the size of Division I. And because of those numbers, the D-II playoff situation is almost always complicated.
Right now, four D-II teams seem certain to make the Nov. 12-13 quarterfinal round: Tolman (5-0), Woonsocket (4-1), Chariho (4-1) and Johnston (4-1). The scramble for the other four spots wonâ€™t be figured out until after the dust clears on Nov. 6.
NARRAGANSETT â€“ Two steps forward, one step back.
All of the good vibes Lincoln High gained in beating previously undefeated Moses Brown the previous week went up in smoke Saturday at Zepp Field. Turnovers and several ill-timed penalties were the major bugaboos in a 23-7 setback to Narragansett High that places the Lions squarely on the bubble of the Division III playoff scene.
â€śWe completely beat ourselves,â€ť was the quick-to-the-point assessment Lincoln head coach Dave Waycott offered after his club slipped to 3-3 in the league, a record now shared by the Mariners.
