PAWTUCKET â€“ West Warwick almost pulled off the upset heard around Division III on Tuesday night, taking a 2-1 lead into the final two minutes of the second overtime before St. Raphael Academyâ€™s Kytresa Ivey-Jones scored the goal of her young life, tying the contest and sending it into a shootout that the Saints won, 4-2, on a clinching goal by freshman Trina Lomba.
LINCOLN â€“ You could say the elements helped even the playing field between Lincoln and North Smithfield. With a steady rain sweeping across Chet Nichols Field, Tuesdayâ€™s Division II quarterfinal match became a matter of survival.
Thanks to two goals in the final nine minutes, the Lions emerged from this mud bath with a 2-0 victory over the Northmen, who played the game minus the services of head coach Steve DeMeo. DeMeo was relived of his coaching duties after Mondayâ€™s arrest for allegedly transmitting inappropriate messages to a minor.
Boston Red Sox director of player development Mike Hazen confirmed Tuesday that the process to find Pawtucketâ€™s next manager is already under way. The vacancy was created when Torey Lovullo left to become Torontoâ€™s first base coach on Monday.
â€śWeâ€™ve already started to put together a list,â€ť Hazen said via cell phone. â€śCertainly within the list you have to stay somewhat flexible because of (potential coaching shifts at the major league level). As a result more candidates could become available as those situations play out.â€ť
