PAWTUCKET â West Warwick almost pulled off the upset heard around Division III on Tuesday night, taking a 2-1 lead into the final two minutes of the second overtime before St. Raphael Academyâs Kytresa Ivey-Jones scored the goal of her young life, tying the contest and sending it into a shootout that the Saints won, 4-2, on a clinching goal by freshman Trina Lomba.
LINCOLN â You could say the elements helped even the playing field between Lincoln and North Smithfield. With a steady rain sweeping across Chet Nichols Field, Tuesdayâs Division II quarterfinal match became a matter of survival.
Thanks to two goals in the final nine minutes, the Lions emerged from this mud bath with a 2-0 victory over the Northmen, who played the game minus the services of head coach Steve DeMeo. DeMeo was relived of his coaching duties after Mondayâs arrest for allegedly transmitting inappropriate messages to a minor.
Boston Red Sox director of player development Mike Hazen confirmed Tuesday that the process to find Pawtucketâs next manager is already under way. The vacancy was created when Torey Lovullo left to become Torontoâs first base coach on Monday.
âWeâve already started to put together a list,â Hazen said via cell phone. âCertainly within the list you have to stay somewhat flexible because of (potential coaching shifts at the major league level). As a result more candidates could become available as those situations play out.â
