Young Friars too quick for Rams

December 4, 2010

PROVIDENCE – If this was a boxing match, a good referee would have intervened and stopped the proceedings before things got too out of hand. It was a total mismatch right from the opening tap.
Providence College was much better than the University of Rhode Island yesterday. The Friars dominated in coasting to an impressive 87-74 triumph over the Rams before a sellout crowd of 12,410 at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. PC led by a dozen in the first half before going up as many as 17 points late in the game.

Winning really is everything in today's Super Bowl

December 4, 2010

“Winning isn’t everything … it’s the only thing.”
***

Mike Akanji leads Lincoln past North Smithfield

December 4, 2010

NORTH SMITHFIELD –Kent Crooks realizes that this year’s squad doesn’t really have a superstar or a good-to guy.
What the Lincoln High coach does know is that he has multiple players that can get the job done.
And that was clearly on display during Friday night’s non-league Injury Fund contest versus North Smithfield.
Three players scored in double digits and half a dozen netted at least six points as the Lions breezed to a 76-38 win over a somewhat-shorthanded Northmen squad at the Lovett Gymnasium. Lincoln was led by a team-high 16 points from Mike Akanji.

Defenses won't rest in D-II Super Bowl

December 3, 2010

When push comes to shove during Sunday’s Division II Super Bowl between Woonsocket and Tolman, expect both coaching staffs to put the game in the hands of their defensive units.
Each of these championship football teams depended on their defenses in tough games, perhaps never more so than during their Sept. 24 regular season meeting when the Tigers ground out a 6-0 victory over the Villa Novans.
By the end of the league season, Woonsocket had allowed just 20 points in 7 games. Tolman yielded 28.

Search for next PawSox manager still ongoing

December 3, 2010

It appears the Red Sox are leaving no stone unturned as the search for the next PawSox manager remains ongoing. The position has been vacant for nearly a month, yet the organization remains mum on whom Torey Lovullo’s successor will be.
As BoSox farm director Mike Hazen explained Thursday, finding the next Pawtucket manager is a decision best not entered into lightly and one that requires a great deal of homework.

Brave new world for Lincoln hockey

December 3, 2010

When the Rhode Island Interscholastic League decided to dissolve the seven-team Division I-A circuit in boys’ hockey during the offseason, that left Lincoln High with an interesting dilemma.
Do the Lions, who were 13-4-1 and state finalists a season ago, drop down to Division II and become the clear-cut favorites to win that championship? Or do the Lions take a bold step up the ladder and compete with the state’s premier teams in Division I?

Handy, Central Falls part ways

December 3, 2010

When Central Falls boards its bus for tonight’s Injury Fund opener in Newport against Rogers, the Warriors will do so without someone who had been with them for the past two decades.
Joe Handy, who served the last 10 seasons as the Warriors’ head coach and the 10 before that as an assistant, has not returned to the helm this season.
It wasn’t because Handy didn’t want to coach anymore, nor was it because of any outside commitments with his family or his occupation.
