ROCHESTER, N.Y. â For the first time since 2003, the Pawtucket Red Sox will play for the right to be called Governorsâ Cup champions. The PawSox clinched a spot in this weekâs championship series after disposing of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 7-1, in Game Four of the best-of-five opening-round series on Saturday night at Frontier Field. Pawtucket wins the series, three games to one. The finals get underway Tuesday night with the first two games on tap at McCoy Stadium. The PawSox will play Charlotte after the Knights eliminated first-round foe Indianapolis in four games.
WOONSOCKET â Inside the Barry Field meeting/locker room hangs a sign reading simply, âDiscipline: Do what has to be done; when it has to be done; as well as it can be done; do it that way all the time.â
Excepting a couple of fumbles (one lost) and five penalties for a minus-32 yards, Woonsocket High pretty much followed those instructions to a âTâ in its Challenge Cup non-league tilt against East Providence High on what became a soggy Saturday afternoon.
PAWTUCKET â Catherine Cabral, who just moved to Pawtucket last year, was happily enjoying a shrimp kabob, listening to the music and surveying the crowd along Roosevelt Avenue. âThis is fun. And itâs a great way to get you to try food from different places. I thought Iâd come and get to know Pawtucket.â
PAWTUCKET â With all 11 Pawtucket School Committee candidates running as Democrats, Tuesday's Democratic primary will be an important decider in the make-up of the school board for the next two years.
