WOONSOCKET â€” It wasnâ€™t pretty, not by any means, but Cumberland High head coach Deb Engels didnâ€™t care.
For the first time since the 2010-11 campaign, the Clippers had manufactured a regular-season triumph, this one a sloppy 38-22 affair against Division I-North rival Woonsocket on Thursday night.
EAST PROVIDENCE - After sweating out back-to-back nailbiters that werenâ€™t decided until the final seconds, East Providence was able to relax a bit on Thursday night and enjoy a blowout victory.
Sparked by a game-high 17 points from Mary Monagle and 14 points and as many rebounds by Taylor Wiggins, the Townies, who are back in Division II after a two-year stint in Division I, ran their young league record to 2-0 by rolling to a 58-38 crossover victory over Burrillville on their home floor.
PAWTUCKET â€” Police say the man suspected in a car-jacking that took place in front of the Pawtucket Post Office on Monday afternoon has been caught.
The female victim told Pawtucket Police that she had been sitting in her parked car in front of the Post Office at 40 Montgomery Street at around 4:35 p.m. when a white male opened the door and pulled her out of the vehicle. The male then entered her vehicle and drove away. The victim reported that her purse had been left in the vehicle which contained cash, personal papers, credit cards and her cell phone.
