Rogers gridders too quick for Lincoln

September 26, 2011

LINCOLN --- Lincoln controlled the clock, but Rogers ruled the scoreboard.
The Vikings only had the ball on offense for approximately 10½ of the first 31½ minutes of Monday night’s Division III game at Ferguson Field, but that didn’t prevent them from producing 35 points and 228 yards of real estate and cruising to a 41-6 victory.

Tolman adds passing game to arsenal

September 25, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Before officially closing the books on the 2010 football season for Tolman High, please, pass the lemons.
A half-healed wound is in need of one final squeeze.
It’s about the lessons head coach Dave Caito and his Tigers learned from the way Woonsocket took over, and was allowed to take over, supremacy in last season’s Division II Super Bowl that was, by the end, not nearly as close as the 28-14 final score would have you believe.

Defense carries C.F. gridders past Hope

September 23, 2011

CENTRAL FALLS --- Central Falls’ ‘D’ earned an A-plus from its head coach on Friday night.
The Warriors’ defense forced five turnovers, recorded six sacks, and limited Hope to just 12 yards of offense en route to an impressive 21-0 victory in their Division IV meeting at rain-drenched and mud-covered Macomber Stadium.
Offensively, senior quarterback Brandon Canuto tossed a pair of touchdown passes and senior running back Joshua Brandon had his first career 100-yard game on the ground by picking up 111 yards on 21 carries, but the night clearly belonged to the defense.

Turnovers doom Townies in loss to C.W.

September 23, 2011

CRANSTON – Taking care of the ball on a rainy night proved to be too tall an order for East Providence High.
Five E.P. turnovers paved the way for three Cranston West High scores in a 19-10 triumph for the Falcons on Friday night. Trailing by three with just over two minutes remaining, East Providence quarterback Brandon Peters was picked off by Nicholas DeMarco in front of the Townie bench and ran 28 yards into the end zone for a score that iced game for the Falcons.

Imagine this autopsy done on Red Sox

September 22, 2011

Despite the panic that currently grips Red Sox fans, odds remain in Boston’s favor when it comes to securing a wild-card playoff berth. Two-game lead with six to play? Just win three of six and you’re in. The Angels and Rays aren’t going to run the table. What’s the big deal?

Lincoln girls strike late for soccer victory over N.S.

September 22, 2011

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Staring at a scoreless tie after the first half of Thursday’s Division II-North matchup with North Smithfield, Jillian DeSimone wasn’t nervous. But the Lincoln senior knew something had to be done differently if the Lions were going to escape the Northmen Athletic Complex with a ‘W’.
“I think in the first half we were just too relaxed,” she said. “I think that’s one of our problems. At the beginning of the game we were just too relaxed. We just needed to pick up the intensity.”

Shea rolls past East Providence

September 21, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Shea High coach Pierre Ridore compares his team to a luxury car. The Raiders are fast, they look good on an open course, and they make heads turn with the beauty of their engine running at full speed.
East Providence coach Tony Vieira found other words to describe the Raiders after his team dropped a 5-0 decision to Shea on Wednesday afternoon.

Tolman-Woonsocket matchup highlights football slate

September 21, 2011

Barry Field promises to be a packed house with plenty of energetic fans on Saturday afternoon when two-time Division II champion Woonsocket High entertains Tolman High in a Division II-B clash and a spirited rematch of last season’s Super Bowl.
And while the fans from both teams hope to see a battle that’s as thrilling and competitive as last year’s 6-0 regular-season victory by the Tigers and 28-14 Super Bowl triumph by the Novans, both head coaches, Tolman’s Dave Caito and Woonsocket’s Carnell Henderson, hope to see their respective teams play a lot better than they did a week ago.

Saunders fills in as SRA's interim AD

September 20, 2011

PAWTUCKET — As interim athletic director for St. Raphael Academy, Fred Saunders is being called upon to guide the department while the search to replace Bruce Gammell takes place. The void was created following Gammell’s resignation late last month.
Gammell’s decision to relocate to Florida was viewed in some corners as curious, given that fall high school sports were set to start. For his last official act before leaving, Gammell, who also taught at St. Raphael, recommended to the administration that Saunders be hired in the meantime.

Clippers sweep cross-country meet

September 20, 2011

CUMBERLAND – Winning another Northern Division title would be nice, but that’s not the No. 1 priority for head coach Tom Kenwood and his Cumberland High squad this fall.
With a talented team with plenty of depth, the Clippers are hoping to place among the top six at the state meet in early November and earn a ticket to the New England Championship. The last time that’s been done was the 2005-06 season when the Cumberland placed third behind team champion Bishop Hendricken.
