EAST PROVIDENCE â€“ After a game of twists and turns galore, head coach Alex Butler wouldn't say he was thrilled after his East Providence High squad had registered a 74-64 Division I-Central victory over gamey Central High on Wednesday night.
He also didn't downplay it.
â€śThe key thing for us is we've been working so hard on our zone defense in practice, we wanted to see it work,â€ť he noted as the triumph pushed the Townies back to .500 overall (7-7), and left them at 5-6 in league play. â€śWe wanted to be in attack mode from the wing to the baseline to the block, and we did that well here.
WARWICK â€” Lincoln junior Casie Beauchemin must have ice water in her veins. With 2.3 seconds left on the clock, Beauchemin swished two free throws to give the Lions a remarkable 34-33 victory over Warwick Vets on Tuesday afternoon.
Down one point late, the Lions (4-2, Division II-North) were scrambling to make something happen when Beauchemin collided with the Hurricanesâ€™ Casey Bennett. Faced with a 1-and-1, the heroine took her time and found nothing but net on her first attempt to tie the score.
PROVIDENCE â€” In most of the games itâ€™s played this season, Bishop Keough High starts slowly, suffers from early foul issues, but then surges over the final 10-12 minutes to claim a win.
When facing Hope High in a Division III tilt on Tuesday afternoon, the opposite occurred.
The Koalas went exactly nine minutes and 13 seconds of the second half without scoring a single point, though they had built enough of a cushion to eventually snatch a 33-26 victory over the Blue Wave at its own gymnasium.
