PAWTUCKET â€” The defending Governorsâ€™ Cup Champion Pawtucket Red Sox will play their 2013 home-opener at McCoy Stadium on Thursday, April 11 against the Rochester Red Wings at 7:05 p.m.
The PawSox 2013 season will actually start one week earlier on April 4th when they play the inaugural game at the newly-renovated PNC Field in Moosic, PA against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
For the eight football teams that succeeded in qualifying for the Division II postseason, the objective is crystal clear â€“ survive to play the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.
Of the three local participants, only one team is guaranteed a coveted spot in the semifinals. Woonsocket and St. Raphael will lock helmets in a quarterfinal-round clash at Pariseau Field come 6 oâ€™clock Saturday night. Meanwhile, Cumberland rolls out the welcome mat for Westerly, which ventures to Tucker Field Friday.
PROVIDENCE â€“ The idea of framing Saturdayâ€™s first-ever hoops get-together between Providence College and Rhode Island College as merely an exhibition game doesnâ€™t paint a complete picture.
When last we saw Wes Pennington and his North Smithfield football troupe, the Northmen were set to embark upon an unprecedented double bye that would encompass three whole weeks between games.
PAWTUCKET â€” Head coach Pierre Ridore had several reasons to believe his Shea High squad would reign in a R.I. Division I Tournament preliminary tilt against Cumberland on Thursday afternoon.
First, his Raiders had rolled to a 4-1 victory over the Clippers just nine days before this playoff; second, Ridore's bunch entered the contest with a 6-0-1 mark at home â€“ that is, when it played either at Max Read Field or the McKinnon-Alves Complex â€“ and this would be played at the latter.
PAWTUCKET â€” In the end, or more appropriately the final 15 minutes of their R.I. Division III Tournament preliminary-round contest, Tolman High players â€“ those on the bench and, actually, a select few on the field â€“ kept screaming, â€śPass it to Morgan! C'mon, Morgan!â€ť
Those chants were directed at freshman midfielder Morgan Clark, No. 6 on your roster.
