SK fell just shy of postseason

October 20, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—Even narrowly missing out on the Division I playoffs couldn’t damper the South Kingstown girls tennis team’s spirits after the complete turnaround the Rebels made from a season ago.
South made its return to D-I last fall – finishing just 1-11 – and were expected to be in a similar situation for 2013.
South (5-7 D-I) defied those expectations though, and with two games to play were still in the mix for a playoff berth.
Unfortunately for the Rebels, they fell just shy as back-to-back 4-3 losses to Moses Brown and Barrington sealed their fate.

Coventry, South play to scoreless tie

October 20, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN — Two weeks ago the South Kingstown girls soccer team likely would’ve lost Tuesday night’s Division I game with Coventry by a goal.
Had Tuesday’s game been played early last week, the Oakers likely would’ve suffered defeat against the tough Rebels.
Instead, the two teams have started to develop an identity as tough-to-break-down squads which will continue to battle for 80 minutes. Both teams had chances to score – South had the most golden of the opportunities late in the first half – but the teams walked away with a point following a 0-0 draw.

Knights drops three straight to Wiz

October 20, 2013

WEST GREENWICH — For the third time in as many five-game matches, it looked like the West Warwick volleyball team was going to play well enough to come up just short of a victory over a playoff-bound team.
Three-time defending Division II champion Exeter-West Greenwich scored two straight points to earn two match points. This time, the Wizards weren’t going to let all their hard work go to waste.
The Wizards overcame a two-game deficit and then burnt off two match points before finally winning the match 15-25, 5-25, 25-22, 25-22, 16-14 on an EWG hitting error.
