Woonsocket coaching staff pulling together

September 14, 2011

Carnell Henderson is aware of the burden he’s placed on his Woonsocket assistant coaches. The head coach, who continues to come along after undergoing surgery in early August to repair a torn tendon in quadriceps muscle of his left leg, knows that just like the players have to step up their game whenever there’s an absence, so too does his staff.
The idea is to keep things as close to the status quo as possible until Henderson returns to the sidelines, which he is optimistic will happen this season.

Shea booters too much for PCD, 6-1

September 12, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Seems like everyone is in agreement. Shea High once again has an extremely talented soccer team.
“Shea is the best team in the state in terms of skills,” Providence Country Day coach Stacey DeCastro admitted on Monday after his shorthanded team dropped a one-sided 6-1 verdict to the Raiders.
“There is one thing about Shea,” DeCastro added. “The only one that can beat them is themselves. Sometimes they forget what they do best. I thought they were too casual today on our one goal.”

If you blinked, chances are you missed out seeing the Pawtucket Red Sox in the 2011 Governors’ Cup playoffs. The three-game sweep administered by Lehigh Valley was that fleeting.

LINCOLN – Lincoln and Shea opened their respective 2011 seasons with a non-league tilt at Ferguson Field on Friday night, a game that validated why these team were once Thanksgiving Day rivals.

The teams played on Thanksgiving from 1968-2001, with the Lions holding a 17-16-1 advantage in those games. Shea rolled to a 29-14 victory over Lincoln in last year’s season opener, but this one was much more competitive.
