When push comes to shove during Sundayâ€™s Division II Super Bowl between Woonsocket and Tolman, expect both coaching staffs to put the game in the hands of their defensive units.
Each of these championship football teams depended on their defenses in tough games, perhaps never more so than during their Sept. 24 regular season meeting when the Tigers ground out a 6-0 victory over the Villa Novans.
By the end of the league season, Woonsocket had allowed just 20 points in 7 games. Tolman yielded 28.
It always used to be easy to have a finger on the pulse of fans and alumni associated with the Providence College-University of Rhode Island basketball rivalry.
It appears the Red Sox are leaving no stone unturned as the search for the next PawSox manager remains ongoing. The position has been vacant for nearly a month, yet the organization remains mum on whom Torey Lovulloâ€™s successor will be.
As BoSox farm director Mike Hazen explained Thursday, finding the next Pawtucket manager is a decision best not entered into lightly and one that requires a great deal of homework.
When the Rhode Island Interscholastic League decided to dissolve the seven-team Division I-A circuit in boysâ€™ hockey during the offseason, that left Lincoln High with an interesting dilemma.
Do the Lions, who were 13-4-1 and state finalists a season ago, drop down to Division II and become the clear-cut favorites to win that championship? Or do the Lions take a bold step up the ladder and compete with the stateâ€™s premier teams in Division I?
When Central Falls boards its bus for tonightâ€™s Injury Fund opener in Newport against Rogers, the Warriors will do so without someone who had been with them for the past two decades.
Joe Handy, who served the last 10 seasons as the Warriorsâ€™ head coach and the 10 before that as an assistant, has not returned to the helm this season.
It wasnâ€™t because Handy didnâ€™t want to coach anymore, nor was it because of any outside commitments with his family or his occupation.
PROVIDENCE â€” Marshon Brooks has never been accused of being shy with the basketball. Yet in order for him to complete player in the eyes of Keno Davis, the Providence College senior had to show a serious commitment to rebounding the basketball.
Brooks delivered another banner night scoring-wise, notching a season-best 27 points as PC held off visiting Northeastern, 77-72, Wednesday night before yet another sparse gathering of 4,828 at The Dunk. Just as important were the eight rebounds Brooks snatched, as he came close to matching his season average (8.7).
Sundayâ€™s Division II Super Bowl game between unbeaten (in league play) Tolman and defending champion Woonsocket needs no hype from the media. These two teams stand on their own merits.
PAWTUCKET â€” In the end, Tuesday night's Division II semifinal playoff game between Tolman and St. Raphael Academy came down to a few gridiron standbys â€“ halftime adjustments, plays that just missed connecting, and which team wanted it more.
Tolman made the necessary adjustments, St. Raphael dropped a crucial touchdown pass, and the top-seeded Tigers, who trailed 12-7 at halftime, reached deep down within themselves to outlast a courageous Saints team, 25-12, before an estimated crowd of 1,200 fans at Max Read Field.
PROVIDENCE â€” During the league season last month, Lincoln High had its way with Moses Brown and handed its Division III foe its first loss of the fall.
Letâ€™s just say the Quakers took that defeat personal.
In the more-important rematch between the two squads â€” a semifinal tilt on Tuesday night â€” Moses Brown returned the favor with a convincing 21-0 blanking of the Lions at Brown Universityâ€™s Berylson Field.
