Pawtucket's Falowo looks to build on success during Thursday's match at Twin River

March 19, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Outside the ring, Thomas Falowo is known as a quiet, respectful person, but inside the ring, he’s made plenty of noise in his 16 months as a middleweight boxer.

State champions! E.P. wins Div. III hockey title

March 19, 2012

PROVIDENCE -- Immediately after East Providence High had secured a 2-1 triumph over gritty Mount Hope High in the rubber tilt of the R.I. Division III Hockey Tournament finals Sunday afternoon, the Townies threw their gloves and sticks high into the air.
They then mobbed freshman netminder Marc LaValley behind his Schneider Arena goal line.
Given the length of time he spent under the pile of humanity, it was amazing LaValley could breathe to deliver his comments regarding EP’s capture of its first state title since 2005.

Rocco Baldelli opens up on day he's inducted into Hendricken Athletic HOF

March 18, 2012

WARWICK – If nothing else, Sunday offered Rocco Baldelli a rare chance to partake in some deep-seeded reflection.
An intensely private sort, Baldelli more often than not comes across as a man of mystery rather than someone who’s willing to lay all his cards on the table. Such an introverted/reclusive approach helped the Woonsocket native get through the turbulent times that arose during his career of seven major-league seasons, the belief at the time that the less the general public knew, the better.

PROVIDENCE --- Kevin Hall’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 College’s Schneider Arena.

Pawtucket's Soto makes move to welterweight

March 15, 2012

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 “Home Invasion” show, presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports, at the Twin River Event Center.

March 14, 2012
