There's only one game going on tonight as Coventry, the No. 1 seed from Division II-North, takes on South Kingstown, the No. 4 seed from II-South, in the D-II boys hockey quarterfinals tonight at 8 p.m. at the West Warwick Civic Center.
The winner will take on Pilgrim, the No. 3-seed from the North, which shut out Middletown to sweep its series.
On the other side of the bracket, Prout cruised past Providence Country Day and the Crusaders will play Portsmouth, which swept Cumberland.

NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ They slept in the kitchen garret, high under the eaves in a room whose ceiling was so low they had to stoop.
With only two small windows, they sweltered in summer; in winter, they huddled around the stone chimney for warmth.
They were the slaves of Richard Smith Jr. â€“ two men, one elderly woman and five children â€“ and their existence is confirmed in a 1691 property inventory of Cocumscussoc, more commonly called Smithâ€™s Castle.
When Daniel Updike died here in 1757, the slave population had risen to â€ś18 Negroes and a baby.â€ť
