Shea rallies for 65-55 win over Tolman

December 18, 2010

PAWTUCKET – Once Shea High got on a roll during the second half Friday night, there was very little anyone wearing a Tolman High uniform could do in corralling the Raiders.
Shea took full advantage of a 16-1 flurry – one that encompassed all of three minutes of clock – to roll to a wild, come-from-behind 65-55 win over its crosstown rivals at “The Cage.” The verdict helped secure Matt Pita’s first win as the Raiders’ coach and improve Shea’s record to 1-1 in Division II-Central. The loss drops the Tigers to 0-2 on the young season.

And the Mounties got the job done by spoiling a truly brilliant performance by junior goaltender Jacob Toback, who masterfully turned away 43 shots in a 2-0 triumph by the defending state champions at Adelard Arena.

December 17, 2010

PAWTUCKET --- St. Raphael Academy got on Thursday night what they couldn’t get in their close defeat to Portsmouth High three nights earlier – a full game out of junior guard Cesar Mejia and an outstanding defensive effort against a solid team.
Mejia poured in a game-high 22 points and added four steals to help his team force Hope High into committing 24 turnovers and come away with a 62-40 victory in their Division I-East affair at the Saints’ Wellness Center.

Young Tolman hockey team off to solid start

December 16, 2010

PAWTUCKET --- For the third straight year, Tolman High will be sporting a very young squad, and this one may be the youngest of the bunch – with seven sophomores and three freshmen making up the bulk of its 16-man roster.
In Coach Speak, the word ‘young’ is usually synonymous with ‘bad’, but with this year’s Tigers, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

December 16, 2010

Clippers back for more

December 15, 2010

CUMBERLAND — Defending state champion Cumberland is not the early-season favorite to repeat, according to no less an authority than Clippers head coach Steve Gordon.
“Warwick Veterans is loaded,” Gordon was saying on Wednesday morning, a few hours before his Clippers would face North Providence and Mount Hope in a double-dual meet at Pilgrim High. “They finished six points behind us last year in the state meet and didn’t lose anybody.”

Wiggins leads East Providence girls past SRA

December 15, 2010

PAWTUCKET – St. Raphael Academy’s Diandra DaRosa may have been the top talent on the floor Tuesday night, but East Providence High proved that team play wins out every time.
Paced by a monster effort by Michaela Wiggins, the Townies held on to defeat the Saints, 55-49, at the Wellness Center. Wiggins, a senior, finished with a game-best 24 points and 22 rebounds, a performance that helped offset the 23 points DaRosa scored for SRA. Shania Connor aided E..P.’s cause with 14 points and eight rebounds.

Could Donaldson, Lynch tourneys be merged?

December 13, 2010

PAWTUCKET – Jim Hoyt, the CEO of the Pawtucket Boys & Girls Club, has a vision of taking the two existing preseason boys’ basketball tournaments in the city – the James W. Donaldson Memorial Tournament and the Dennis M. Lynch Memorial Tournament – and combining the tradition each one represents. The end result would be an all-inclusive tournament that would serve as the perfect wet-your-whistle appetizer for league play.

PC's Brooks named Big East Player of Week

December 13, 2010

PROVIDENCE – Since the Big East expanded to 16 teams in 2005, taking home Player of the Week kudos has been an honor normally doled out to All-American candidates/NBA prospects. With that in mind, it’s not every day a Providence College player is bestowed with the conference’s top weekly award.
Monday saw the Big East lavish Player of the Week praise upon PC senior Marshon Brooks. The swingman averaged 31.3 points and 8.7 rebounds in three games last week, leading the Friars to a 2-1 mark.
