LINCOLN â€“ Despite having a significant edge in the categories of shots on goal and corner kicks, Lincoln High suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Narragansett in a pivotal Division II clash at Chet Nichols Memorial Field on Monday afternoon.
The two squads had entered the contest tied for second in the division with 20 points, and the Lions managed to produce seven more shots and a stunning 10 more corners than the Mariners. Still, senior Evan Carvalho's tally just 5:59 into the final stanza sealed Lincoln's fate.
PAWTUCKET â€“ When St. Raphael Academy athletic director Fred Saunders approached Linley Pullem one afternoon in May and asked her if she'd be interested in taking over the reins of an inaugural girls' volleyball program, she responded â€“ without hesitation â€“ â€śAbsolutely!â€ť
Saunders had heard that Pullem, who at the time was completing her initial year as a history teacher, had some experience playing the game on a rather high level, as she had excelled at John Jay High-Cross River in Westchester County, N.Y.'s Katona-Lewisboro School District.
LINCOLN â€“ Pawtucketâ€™s Thomas â€śThe Souljahâ€ť Falowo and Woonsocketâ€™s Joe Gardner did their respective hometowns proud on Thursday night and were among the big winners on Jimmy Burchfieldâ€™s Classic Entertainment & Sportsâ€™ â€śClosing Statementâ€ť show at the Twin River Event Center.
Falowo picked up his second knockout victory in three months with a fifth-round TKO of Michael Walchuk of Ontario, Canada, a bout that saw the Manfredoâ€™s Gym middleweight dominate his opponent from start to finish and deliver one of the best efforts of his young two-year career.
