EAST PROVIDENCE â€“ After a game of twists and turns galore, head coach Alex Butler wouldn't say he was thrilled after his East Providence High squad had registered a 74-64 Division I-Central victory over gamey Central High on Wednesday night.
He also didn't downplay it.
â€śThe key thing for us is we've been working so hard on our zone defense in practice, we wanted to see it work,â€ť he noted as the triumph pushed the Townies back to .500 overall (7-7), and left them at 5-6 in league play. â€śWe wanted to be in attack mode from the wing to the baseline to the block, and we did that well here.
State and local officials urged residents to take precautions as dangerously cold temperatures and wind chills were forecast for the region through the weekend.
They also advised those at risk of exposure to take shelter at warming centers, including Mathieu Senior Center; 420 Main St., Pawtucket. The site is open from 8:30-4 p.m. daily through Friday.
â€śDress warmly, in layers, even if you are making a short trip to the mailbox,â€ť advised Woonsocket Emergency Management Director Gary Lataille.

WARWICK â€” Lincoln junior Casie Beauchemin must have ice water in her veins. With 2.3 seconds left on the clock, Beauchemin swished two free throws to give the Lions a remarkable 34-33 victory over Warwick Vets on Tuesday afternoon.
Down one point late, the Lions (4-2, Division II-North) were scrambling to make something happen when Beauchemin collided with the Hurricanesâ€™ Casey Bennett. Faced with a 1-and-1, the heroine took her time and found nothing but net on her first attempt to tie the score.
PROVIDENCE â€” In most of the games itâ€™s played this season, Bishop Keough High starts slowly, suffers from early foul issues, but then surges over the final 10-12 minutes to claim a win.
When facing Hope High in a Division III tilt on Tuesday afternoon, the opposite occurred.
The Koalas went exactly nine minutes and 13 seconds of the second half without scoring a single point, though they had built enough of a cushion to eventually snatch a 33-26 victory over the Blue Wave at its own gymnasium.
