Lincoln boots Mount, heads to D-II title match

November 12, 2010

CRANSTON --- Defense is the main reason why Lincoln High captured the Division II-North title this year.

Junior striker Jillian DeSimone scored her team-high 16th of the season and the Lions’ defense held off a furious second-half attack by the high-scoring Mounties en route to a 1-0 victory at Cranston Stadium.

November 12, 2010

CUMBERLAND — When Air National Guard Tech Sgt. Josh Lemois told his father he was giving up a chance to become a local policeman to go to Afghanistan, Bruce Lemois thought he understood.
He had to go.

“He wants to be a Cumberland police officer,” said Lemois, a member of the Cumberland Town Council. “Not a Warwick police officer. Not Providence. He wants to be a member of his hometown police department.”

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 Monday’s arrest for allegedly transmitting inappropriate messages to a minor.

High school basketball tourney needs tweaking

November 9, 2010

Nobody said the format to crown a single champion for the 2010-11 high school boys’ basketball season would be perfect. The event, which calls for a 16-team bracket, is the first of its kind, meaning it should be viewed as a litmus test by administrators, coaches and players.
But that hasn’t stopped some coaches from the lower divisions in voicing concern on how everything is arranged. The field is broken down so that the first eight slots are awarded to Div. I teams, the next five belong to Div. II, and the last three spaces are set aside for entries from Div. III.

Paterno: Victories, and age, are just numbers

November 9, 2010

It was great to see Joe Paterno collect his 400th career victory at Penn State on Saturday. I was in the neighborhood for many of the first 120 back in my college days and early sports writing years. It wasn’t always easy dealing with a man who set such high standards for himself and his program. Paterno kept everyone on their toes, beginning with his players and going right down the list, all the way down to the lowest creatures on earth … the sports writing fraternity.
