February 5, 2014

CUMBERLAND — The opportunity for a father to coach his son in a college setting does not come around very often.

For Cumberland High senior Joe Fine, you can officially swap out “opportunity” and replace it with “reality.”
Beginning this fall, there will be two Fines on the football sideline occupied by Bryant University. Head coach Marty Fine listed son Joe as part of the program’s latest recruiting effort on Wednesday. The Bulldogs’ 22-player class includes players from 10 different states with 11 being from New England.

Ready to fly like an Eagle: Lincoln’s Saine heads to Boston College football program

February 5, 2014

LINCOLN — Oseh-Lie Saine is officially a member of Boston College’s football program. In the eyes of the 2013 Lincoln High graduate who signed a pretty important document Wednesday, it’s a significant step that runs the gamut of emotions.

“It feels really, really good,” a clearly jubilant Saine expressed when reached later the same day. “It’s a day I’ve been waiting for a long time and for it to finally come, it hit me (Tuesday night) and I was just like, ‘wow.’ Signing that paper just felt great. It’s real and I think I’m still on cloud nine.”

February 5, 2014

LINCOLN — Although she didn't want to, Lauren Hervieux did a lot of watching from the sidelines as her Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op teammates competed.
Naturally, the premier senior defenseman would've preferred to take the ice with them and help in her usual ways – battling in the corners, stealing pucks, squelching 2-on-1 breakaways.
She couldn't, of course, after dislocating and fracturing her kneecap at a Lincoln varsity soccer practice back on Nov. 7, the afternoon before a pivotal state tournament semifinal.

St. Raphael edges Scituate, 44-38, stays unbeaten in D-II

February 4, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Based on his court-side demeanor late in his squad’s intense Division II tussle with North stalwart Scituate High on Tuesday night, St. Raphael Academy head coach Fred Saunders seemed both miffed and anxious at his girls’ turnovers and lack of offense.

Once the Saints had clinched a solid 44-38 crossover victory over the Spartans, however, he slowly became more gregarious.

February 3, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Terry Doyle’s 2013 minor-league season featured as much shuffling as a blackjack dealer.

Pawtucket's Pedro nets 100th career high-school goal

February 2, 2014

WARWICK – Jared Pedro has traveled a long, sometimes-satisfying, sometimes-stressful road as a “former” hockey player for Tolman High.
