CRANSTON-The South Kingstown field hockey team has said all season long that they're one of the best teams in Division II.
Thanks to a 2-0 win over Tiverton Saturday afternoon, the Rebels will get their chance to prove it.
South Kingstown's Mackenzie Iemma and Emma Morgan each scored goals Saturday afternoon and Rebel goalie Stephanie Giorelli did the rest as SK upset second-seeded Tiverton to advance to the Division II title game.
The Rebels will play either Classical or Smithfield Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. at Cranston Stadium.
WAKEFIELD â€“ Laura A. Reale, of Westerly, lost her license for five years after appearing in court and pleading guilty to being a habitual traffic offender, the new state law that was created following her arrest for allegedly running a red light and killing Colin B. Foote last May.

The East Greenwich boys soccer team dodged a major bullet Friday night, escaping with a win in penalty picks in a 1-1 game with Mount Pleasant.
After a scoreless first half, EG scored with just over 20 minutes left in the game, but Mount Pleasant answered with a goal less than one minute later.
The half finished tied at one and the two 10-minute overtime periods were both scoreless. In the penalty kicks, EG converted four of five while keeper Alex Serino made two saves, avoiding what would have been a monumental upset of the No. 1 seeded Avengers.
SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€“The South Kingstown football team has suffered some tough losses this season but none, not even the 31-0 loss to Barrington a week ago, hurt the way Friday night's 20-16 defeat to Cranston East did.
Because, for the first time this season, the Rebels left the field knowing they let a sure win slip away.
