PAWTUCKET â€“ Hannah Zangari knew the odds were stacked against her.
In her time on the court â€“ and not just for the North Kingstown girls tennis team â€“ the junior had never beaten Bay Viewâ€™s Rebecca Curran and Sundayâ€™s Girls Tennis Singles Championship final certainly wasnâ€™t the type of tournament where the favorite would just roll over.
It didnâ€™t change Zangariâ€™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 â€“ 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, itâ€™s not going to matter for long.
â€śGuys, itâ€™s only Round 2. Thereâ€™s one more to go,â€ť he said after the Knightsâ€™ 4-1 drubbing of rival Tiverton Monday. â€śThis one means nothing.â€ť
Mondayâ€™s win over the Tiverton â€“ the same school that beat them 1-0 in last yearâ€™s Division III semifinals and again 1-0 earlier this season â€“ didnâ€™t exactly mean nothing.

LINCOLN â€” 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 â€śuh ohsâ€ť 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 Chargersâ€™ mindset of hoping to start anew and get back on the winning track was flooded with the thoughts of â€śhere we go again.â€ť

NARRAGANSETT â€” The Coventry boys soccer team had the first and last goal-scoring chance in Fridayâ€™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.

NORTH KINGSTOWN â€” Headed to the bench after a dramatic comeback in Game 2 of Monday nightâ€™s battle with North Kingstown, the South Kingstown girls volleyball didnâ€™t huddle up and start talking about how they could finish off the Skippers and avoid a collapse thatâ€™s been synonymous with the Rebels this season.
