Quality non-league win for SK

September 19, 2013

WEST WARWICK — It was hard to figure out which team was trying to snap a 12-game losing streak and which team came into the season with Super Bowl aspirations Saturday at Maznicki Field.
The South Kingstown football team, which went winless in the merciless meat grinder that is Division I last year, scored the first 28 points of its non-league contest against a very talented West Warwick squad, which reached the Division II semifinals last year.

Prout couldn’t close out Coventry

September 19, 2013

COVENTRY — With every Abby Lyons kill and every Ally Thomas dig it looked like the Prout volleyball team was going to take the opening game from Coventry Monday night.
The Crusaders, just like North Kingstown the week before, had a late lead on the defending state champions and a chance to dent Coventry’s aura of invincibility.
But, just like the Skippers, the Crusaders simply couldn’t weather the Oakers’ onslaught. Coventry scored the final four points of the opening game and then won 50 of the match’s final 75 points to earn a 25-23, 25-16, 25-9 Division I-South victory.

Sonny Zampini: a true local legend

September 19, 2013

HOPKINTON – I’d spent my childhood hearing my grandfather talk about him. Now, his name regularly falls from my brother’s lips. All I personally knew of Sonny Zampini was that he was in the scrapyard business and that probably everyone in town had called on him when they needed cars hauled away. Recently, upon discovering that he lives on the site of an old mill, I thought I might visit him and do a story. It didn’t take long however, for me to realize that the story wasn’t about a structure. It was about a man.

Rhody ends historic losing streak

September 19, 2013

ALBANY, N.Y. — If Rhode Island was going to snap its 15-game losing streak Saturday night against Albany, the Rams were going to have to take some chances. Chances like the one coach Joe Trainer took in overtime.
With the Rams clinging to a six-point lead in the extra session following a Justin Semmes touchdown and a missed extra point, Albany faced a third-and-8 at the URI 23. Instead of sitting back and allowing Albany quarterback Will Flacchi to survey the field, the Rams blitzed their linebackers and whipped Doug Johnson.
