PAWTUCKET — Two great names from Tolman High football history were reunited on Monday evening for the taping of Bill Mulholland’s “Good Sports” cable access television show.

Is big-league job in Lovullo's future?

November 1, 2010

The World Series might be grabbing all of baseball’s headlines, but that hasn’t stopped the PawSox Express from churning out team-related news …

Torey Lovullo has been in baseball long enough to understand how the game is played. So when good buddy John Farrell was named manager of the Toronto Blue Jays last week, the obvious was raised: would Lovullo receive an invitation to join the Jays’ coaching staff?

Lion girls top Novans, win share of division title

November 1, 2010

WOONSOCKET — For Lincoln High, Monday’s task was as straightforward as you’ll get. A win against Woonsocket High meant the Lions would clinch no worse than a share of the Division II-North crown.
Mission accomplished as Lincoln, buoyed by two goals from Jillian DeSimone, took care of business with a 4-0 win over Woonsocket at Barry Field. The Lions finish the regular season 12-1-5. The Villa Novans completed their first – and possibly last – in Division II with a 1-17 mark.

SRA gridders cap off turnaround, secure playoff spot

October 31, 2010

WARWICK — This isn’t the same St. Raphael Academy outfit that started out the year – not by a long shot.
Gone are the lingering memories of a 2-4 beginning that featured shutout losses to Hendricken, Tolman and Woonsocket, while the wins coming at the expense of Pilgrim and West Warwick, two squads with a combined 1-11 in league play. In a frenetic two-week turnaround, SRA has seen its season go from being on the brink to one that will include a postseason appearance for the first time since winning the Division I Super Bowl three years ago.

Ponaganset coach sheds light on Tolman, Woonsocket

October 31, 2010

Ponaganset football coach Brian Gendreau has developed a good perspective on two of the toughest teams in Division II this season – unbeaten Tolman and once-beaten Woonsocket. His Chieftains have lost to both Super Bowl contenders.
“Tolman is the fastest team in the league,” Gendreau admitted on Sunday, “but I would say Woonsocket is more balanced. They can run and throw the ball. You can see why they played a 6-0 game earlier this season. Both teams have great defenses.”

Tolman gridders race past Ponaganset

October 30, 2010

PAWTUCKET – A well-balanced Ponaganset offense put a scare into unbeaten Tolman on Friday night at Pariseau Field. The Chieftains never really took command of the game but they walked off the field with their heads held high following a 26-10 loss to the explosive Tigers.
“We just had too much speed and too many athletes for them,” Tolman coach Dave Caito said after his club stayed unbeaten in Division II-B at 6-0.
Caito understood his team had been tested in this game.

Shea keeps playoff hopes alive, tops Warwick Vets

October 30, 2010

WARWICK – Don’t count the Shea Raiders out just yet.
In a game Shea simply had to have to keep its razor-thin playoff hopes afloat, the Raiders grounded host Warwick Vets Friday night, 13-0. Defense was the calling card for head coach Dino Campopiano’s crew as Shea racked up seven sacks and two turnovers. Offensively the Raiders did just enough, scoring on their first and last possessions of the Division II-B contest.
The win allows Shea (3-3, 5-3 overall) to remain mathematically alive heading into next Friday’s critical contest at Johnston.

Shea runs past E.P., sets sights on Div. I playoffs

October 28, 2010

PAWTUCKET — When perennial Division II contender Shea High was promoted to Division I for the 2010 season, the Raiders were immediately tabbed as state championship contenders by several rival coaches.
Shea lived up to the hype over the regular season, completing a 12-1-5 campaign in Division I-North on Thursday with a 7-0 romp over winless East Providence.
The match provided a chance for coach Pierre Ridore to play his entire roster, a deserving reward for a team that responded to the challenge of Division I soccer by working together for a common goal.

SRA '9' To Remain in Division I' Tolman staying put in Div. II

October 28, 2010

As he watched his team apply the finishing touches to consecutive Division II titles last June, Mount St. Charles head baseball coach Tom Seaver started to prepare for the impending direction the program figured to be heading in.
Based on the amount of success the Mounties had achieved during the now completed four-year alignment period, a bump up to Division I seemed certain.
The two championships stand out, but so too does the 62-10 regular season league record Seaver’s MSC squad has compiled.
