Remembering our veterans

November 11, 2010

We at The Chariho Times wanted to use this space to take a break from our local news coverage to send out a sincere thank you to all of the veterans who have fought for our nation's freedom and those active servicemen and servicewomen currently protecting us all.

Normal news coverage will continue tomorrow.

WEST GREENWICH – Even as the No. 1 seed in the Division III girls soccer playoffs, Exeter-West Greenwich coach Kevin Fraser was worried.
Thanks to Monday’s storm that postponed the first round to Tuesday, Knights hadn’t played in 10 days and even in those final two games – a tie with Pilgrim on Oct. 28 and a win over Westerly on Oct. 29 – the team didn’t have its best showing.

Thursday's playoff games

November 11, 2010

After being pushed back a day thanks to rainouts earlier in the week, four local girls soccer teams will play with a berth to the finals on the line today.

In Division I, South Kingstown plays East Greenwich at East Greenwich High School at 6 p.m. EGHS was chosen as the site for the semifinals before the season started.

In Division II, Exeter-West Greenwich plays Ponaganset at Cranston Stadium at 6 p.m.

In Division III, Narragansett plays Burrillville at 4 p.m. at Gaudet Middle School in Middletown.

Wednesday's playoff results

November 11, 2010

Four area teams played in playoff games Wednesday, and things didn't go great for three of them.

In boys soccer, South Kingstown did all it could to try and stop undefeated Barrington, but the Rebels fell in a tough game, 2-1. In the nightcap, North Kingstown played No. 2-seed Shea and lost, 3-0.

In girls volleyball, two local teams met in the Division II semifinal.
While neither team played especially well, Exeter-West Greenwich's powerful serving and play at the net allowed the Knights to top West Warwick, 27-25, 23-25, 25-17, 25-14, advancing to their first title game since 1999.

Skippers can't hold off Coventry, Oakers heading to D-I Finals

KINGSTON—The Coventry girls volleyball team was forced to sit and wait in the stands at URI’s Keaney Gymnasium for well over an hour Tuesday night as Prout and Mount St. Charles battled back and forth in an epic, five-game showdown that the Crusaders ultimately won 21-25, 25-15, 20-25, 25-11, 19-17 to earn a spot in the Division I Finals.
It’s safe to say the Oakers didn’t mind, however, as what happened when they finally hit the floor was a moment eight years in the making.
