WEB ONLY: Shorthanded Friars continue to hang tough

December 1, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Deep down, Ed Cooley has to know that the basketball gods have not completely forsaken his Providence College Friars.
While injuries continue to decimate Cooley’s already razor-thin core, PC somehow continues to avoid getting buried under an avalanche of excuses and naysayers proclaiming it’s impossible to play major college basketball with a depleted lineup. The fact that the Friars sport a 6-2 record following Saturday’s too-close-for-comfort 73-63 win over SEC foe Mississippi State reiterates the adage “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

For Red Sox' Kalish, it's full speed ahead

November 29, 2012

PROVIDENCE — To Ryan Kalish, the time and sweat he’s putting in this offseason has a rewarding vibe surrounding it – the kind that provides the 24-year-old Red Sox outfielder with the sort of reassurance that he’ll be ready to answer the bell come spring training.

Turkey Day rivals Clippers, Villa Novans to play for Division II Super Bowl

November 29, 2012

At first blush, the task of Cumberland and Woonsocket laying the groundwork for the season’s biggest game doesn’t seem entirely daunting – especially since we’re referencing two squads that staged a gridiron tussle merely eight days ago.
With only three days between the semifinals and Sunday’s Division II Super Bowl, the art of familiarity helps to take a little strain off of the preparation process. Time has become a valuable commodity, and if you’re going to step into the ring of fire, what better opponent to have than someone where introductions are not required?

Cumberland heads to Division II Super Bowl after blasting West Warwick

November 28, 2012

CUMBERLAND – Mercy!
It was yet another Big Blue blowout in a season that has pointed in one direction – the Division II Super Bowl. An appearance in the title game is officially in Cumberland High’s line of sight after Wednesday night’s 48-14 romp against West Warwick High in semifinal-round action at frigid Tucker Field.

Defensive-minded PC puts away Holy Cross

November 27, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Dating back several seasons, the very idea of placing Providence College and “defense” in the same sentence resulted in snickering along with several knee slaps.
In 2012, Ed Cooley’s PC Friars are getting after it in such ferocious fashion that the opposition is having a hard time getting off the canvas. More punishment was meted out Tuesday as Providence stomped on Holy Cross, 61-42, before a rather subdued crowd, which was announced at 4,596.

Clippers' Crawley prepares for Foot Locker Nationals

November 27, 2012

CUMBERLAND — There once was a time when Trevor Crawley wanted to follow his own plan – and, of course, his coaches – but not so much his dad’s.
Mike Crawley, a 1981 Shea High graduate who earned All-State second-team laurels in outdoor track and later represented both the Community College of Rhode Island and Southern Connecticut State University, apparently had tried to offer some advice as to the nuances of distance running, but it was a “no-go.

Football semifinals move to Wednesday night

November 27, 2012

On the surface, the decision to push back the entire slate of R.I. semifinal-round playoff games to Wednesday seems as simple as the quarterback receiving the snap.
Seven of the eight games on the docket were already based at venues where light fixtures are part of the ambiance. The lone exception: Woonsocket’s Barry Field.
However, thanks to Villa Novans athletic director George Nasuti obtaining portable lights, the situation was remedied.

High school football semifinals kick off tonight

November 27, 2012

Tonight’s the night. High school football’s version of the ‘Sweet Sixteen’. Four teams in each of the state’s four divisions battling for the right to be the eight that will play for a Super Bowl championship this weekend.
Three local teams — Cumberland, Woonsocket, and North Smithfield — are among the 16 that will suit up tonight in their respective semifinal-round games, with the Clippers and Villa Novans playing Division II games in the friendly confines of their home fields and the Northmen heading to Providence for a Division IV contest.
