The Narragansett football team has been up and down all season, but if the Mariners want their season to extend past Thanksgiving, they'll need to win Saturday when they travel to Burrillville at 10 a.m.

WAKEFIELD — South Kingstown No. 1 singles player Victoria Gu, along with her fellow senior co-captains from this season – Chloe Cullen, Laura Giarrusso and Emmah Mitrano – were just mere freshman back in 2007 when they first decided to swing tennis rackets with the Rebels, trying to wind their way through the tough road that is high-school tennis in Rhode Island.
Oddly enough, the South Kingstown girls’ tennis program, in general, was trying to do the exact same thing by trying to find its place at the Division I level.

NORTH KINGSTOWN — The East Greenwich High girls’ tennis team has dominated Division II this season, but the undefeated Avengers brought their dominance to a new level in the Division II quarterfinals against No. 4 Toll Gate Tuesday afternoon.
East Greenwich’s top three singles players and three doubles teams combined to lose just 11 games and No. 4 singles player Katrina Amaral gutted out a tough, two-set match with Toll Gate’s Kayla Lopes as the Avengers earned a 7-0 victory.

PAWTUCKET – Hannah Zangari knew the odds were stacked against her.
In her time on the court – and not just for the North Kingstown girls tennis team – the junior had never beaten Bay View’s Rebecca Curran and Sunday’s Girls Tennis Singles Championship final certainly wasn’t the type of tournament where the favorite would just roll over.
It didn’t change Zangari’s attitude. She showed up to Slater Park last Sunday, put up a fight and left with no regrets after a 6-2, 6-3 loss to Curran.

WEST GREENWICH – As his players joked heading into the postgame handshake, Exeter-West Greenwich boys soccer coach Matt Savoie shouted out a quick reminder that regardless of the result in Monday, it’s not going to matter for long.
“Guys, it’s only Round 2. There’s one more to go,” he said after the Knights’ 4-1 drubbing of rival Tiverton Monday. “This one means nothing.”
Monday’s win over the Tiverton – the same school that beat them 1-0 in last year’s Division III semifinals and again 1-0 earlier this season – didn’t exactly mean nothing.

LINCOLN — With close to 20 minutes left in the match on Monday night at Chet Nichols Field, a few rain drops began to fall and a couple of “uh ohs” were uttered by a few soccer players from both the Chariho and Lincoln girls squads.
But the deluge on the scoreboard occurred very early in the match and the Chargers’ mindset of hoping to start anew and get back on the winning track was flooded with the thoughts of “here we go again.”

NARRAGANSETT — The Coventry boys soccer team had the first and last goal-scoring chance in Friday’s Division II-South contest with Narragansett.
Every chance in between those Oaker efforts belonged to the Mariners and the home side made the most of its opportunities.
Narragansett, needing a win to stay in the hunt for a Division II playoff spot, received two goals apiece from sophomore forward Tod Wright and senior midfielder Pat Stone in a 7-0 victory over the struggling Oakers.
