PAWTUCKET â€“ Itâ€™s closing time for your Pawtucket Red Sox â€“ as in closing out the opposition and advancing to the Governorâ€™s Cup finals.
First things first as the PawSox still need to notch one more win against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Such a scenario could come to fruition as early as Friday night at Rochesterâ€™s Frontier Field after Pawtucket grabbed Game Two of its opening-round series Thursday night by a 3-2 count at McCoy Stadium before 2,214 supportive and at times enthusiastic fans.
The temptation to overlook this weekâ€™s non-league gridiron slate is great, understanding that league play â€“ set to commence a week from now â€“ serves as judge, jury and executioner.
Over time, principles rooted in Darwinism help in separating the wheat from the chaff by performing the simple act of drawing a line right down the middle. Such a divide wonâ€™t begin on Friday night as teams partake in what could essentially be chalked up to the final installment after nearly four weeks of preseason camp.
LINCOLN â€” With just five starters from the 2011 campaign returning, Lincoln High head coach Brenda Sylvester admitted â€śwe have a brand new bunch.
â€śWe were just looking for proper spacing, and we wanted to see how weâ€™d play together for the first time around,â€ť she stated. â€śWe did well, but there are some things we need to work on.â€ť
