Dino Campopiano and his Shea High gridders wonâ€™t get another crack at Cumberland or St. Raphael this season.
Conversely, if Brian Coteâ€™s Mount Hope squad were to cross paths with Woonsocket once again, such a matchup wouldnâ€™t take place until the Division II Super Bowl.
JOHNSTON â€” Shea High head coach Chris Daily and assistant Carl McCurdy find it rather strange how their Raiders play so well on the road but are inconsistent at best at their own arena, â€śThe Cage.â€ť
During the course of the Division III regular season, they managed only a 4-4 mark at home, but compiled a 6-2 record in foreign gymnasiums.
PAWTUCKET â€“ Itâ€™s hard to believe weâ€™ve already had a snowfall this early in the season. For many seniors, shoveling the white stuff may be beyond their physical capabilities or not advisable for a host of other reasons, and they may not have anyone else they can count on to do it for them.
Thatâ€™s where the Youth to Senior Assistance Program comes in. Created last year to help seniors keep their sidewalks and the path to their mailboxes clear of snow to comply with city regulations, nearly 50 elders were aided last year, an historically mild winter season.
PAWTUCKET â€” With its linen tablecloths, stylish interior and impressive views of Slater Mill and the Blackstone River, the Cresta Bar and Ristorante was hailed as a welcome addition to the downtown when it debuted last fall. Yet, a little over a year later, the Italian restaurant has closed and its owner and proprietor is questioning what kind of market exists in the city and who his customer base is.
PAWTUCKET â€” With the tallies from all of the precincts now in, Democrat Timothy Rudd was declared the winner of the District 6 City Council race, and three incumbent Democratic senators, District 15's Donna Nesselbush, District 8's James E. Doyle, and District 16's Elizabeth A. Crowley, along with the incumbent Democratic representative in District 46, Jeremiah T. O'Grady, were also victorious in their respective races.
PAWTUCKET â€” Pawtucket Police said Wednesday they have identified a suspect in the shooting of a man who was found injured in front of 558 Smithfield Ave. on Tuesday morning.
KINGSTON â€“ The match was ugly, but to East Providence, the end result was a thing of beauty.
The Townies nailed down their ninth victory in their last 10 matches on Wednesday night in one of their most important matches of the year â€“ their Division I semifinal-round matchup with the Prout School at URIâ€™s Keaney Gymnasium.
In a tightly-contested match that saw neither side bring out its best brand of volleyball, it was the Townies who shook off an opening-set defeat to down the Division I-South champion Crusaders, 3-1, and earn its first berth in the championship match in three years.
