WEST GREENWICH â€” It went down to the wire as the Exeter-West Greenwich boys soccer team hosted Prout last Friday.
The Knights gave the Crusaders fits all afternoon and it took nearly every single one of the gameâ€™s 90 minutes to decide the outcome, but ultimately Prout came away with the 2-1 win.
NARRAGANSETT â€” The Narragansett football team improved to 3-1 in Division III and 3-2 overall Saturday after a 36-14 home win over Ponaganset.
Showing off big-play artillery to go with a well-rounded performance, the Mariners got started early and dispatched the Chieftains with a couple of long touchdowns before its guests had even settled in.
COVENTRY â€” Sometimes the difference between a win and a loss is the width of a crossbar.
That was the case last Thursday afternoon for the Coventry and Narragansett boys soccer teams. Just a minute before halftime Mariner junior Jonathan Tartaro slammed a shot off Domenic Aguiarâ€™s crossbar.
With the game still scoreless just minutes into the second half, Coventry junior midfielder Sam Burton ripped a shot from the top of the box. The ball looped over goalie Austin McKanna, ricocheted off the bottom of the crossbar and bounced into the net to lead the Oakers to a 1-0 Division II win.
PROVIDENCEâ€”For a team thatâ€™s struggled to finish its scoring chances this season the South Kingstown boys soccer squad certainly picked a good day to find its touch around the net.
Friday the Rebels (8-2-0 Division I) emerged from a wild, back-and-forth second half to secure a 4-3 victory at Hope (5-4-1 Division I).
â€śWeâ€™ve been getting a little better at that,â€ť SK coach Scott Rollins said of his teamâ€™s ability to finish chances. â€śToday was weird because it was our defense that let us down a little bit but hey, win is a win and this is a tough place to play.â€ť
PROVIDENCEâ€”The Division I football season is just four weeks old but it is already shaping up to be a wild finish.
Friday South Kingstown (3-2, 1-2 D-I) â€“ fresh off a thrilling win over Portsmouth (4-1, 3-1 D-I) the week prior â€“ dropped a 27-16 decision at La Salle (5-1, 3-1 D-I), whose only loss of the season came to the Patriots in week one.
Given that Cranston West, East Providence and Tolman have started 0-4 â€“ while Barrington 3-0 and Hendricken 4-0 â€“ the stage is setting up for a potential battle for two playoff spots between the Rebels, Patriots, Rams and Cranston East.
