PROVIDENCE --- Kevin Hallâ€™s second goal of the game, a shorthanded tally with 5:54 to play, lifted East Providence to a 4-3 victory over Mount Hope on Thursday night in the opening game of their best-of-three Division III championship series at Providence Collegeâ€™s Schneider Arena.
The Townies (17-4) will seek their first state title since 2005 tonight at 8:30 p.m. when the series resumes at Schneider. A third and deciding game will be held on Sunday at a time to be announced if the Huskies win this game.
CRANSTON --- After losing his last three fights over the past 24 months as a lightweight fighter, can a change in weight class result in a change of fortunes for Eddie Soto?
The Pawtucket fighter and his camp at 401 Boxing in Cranston certainly think so.
Soto, who spent the first seven years of his pro career fighting at 135 pounds, is moving up two classes to the 145-pound welterweight circuit and making his debut in this division next Thursday night on the â€śHome Invasionâ€ť show, presented by Jimmy Burchfieldâ€™s Classic Entertainment & Sports, at the Twin River Event Center.
