’Gansett no match for Lions

September 19, 2013

NARRAGANSETT–The deck was certainly stacked against the Narragansett girls soccer team as it entered Tuesday afternoon’s contest with a veteran Lincoln squad.
Not only were the wounds of an 8-2 loss to Burrillville fresh but the Mariners also had a littany of injuries to deal with – including one to starting goalkeeper junior Ceili O’Connnell.
For 40 minutes Narragansett more than held its own as replacement keeper freshman Finnian Duncan and the Mariner defense – particularly Sarah Lubic and Grace Castro – kept the Lions off the board in the first half.

Crusaders had their chances

September 19, 2013

WAKEFIELD—The Prout girls’ soccer team fell to 0-4-0 on the season after a 3-1 loss to Exeter West-Greenwich Tuesday afternoon.
Although EWG jumped out to leads of 1-0 and 3-1, Prout will look back at many missed quality chances to cut the lead and eventually equalize the match as one of the main reasons for the defeat.
“We can’t have certain people showing up at certain times—everyone needs to be showing up,” Prout coach Ria Carroll said, “we’re a good team, we just need to mesh together—we need to put it all together.”

Prout’s strong start continues

WAKEFIELD – The good start to the 2013 season for the Prout boys soccer team just seems to keep getting better.
After three big wins to start the year, the Crusaders came out and dominated the first half of game four Wednesday afternoon and rolled on from there for a 3-1 win over visiting Tiverton.

ON CAMPUS: Bender more than just a goal scorer

September 19, 2013

Adrienne Bender is one of the top goal scorers in Division III but she does more than just score points for the Colby-Sawyer women’s soccer team.
Bender, from Wakefield (South Kingstown High), has three goals and an assist, including a game-winner, thus far for the 5-1 Chargers. She scored 28 goals the past two seasons and stands fourth on the school’s career list with 87 points. She was named North Atlantic Conference Player of the Week after scoring two goals in a 5-1 victory over Norwich and picking up an assist in a 3-0 triumph over Mount Holyoke.

Opening day loss fueling North

September 19, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN – As tends to happen in season openers, a tone was set for the North Kingstown boy soccer team two weeks ago when they opened the year against LaSalle.
The Skippers lost that day, 3-2, yielding three unanswered goals to the Rams before clawing back into the game late. The loss sparked a defense that has not yielded a goal since, reeling off three straight wins following their 2-0 decision over Tolman Monday night.

Knights dealing with changes

September 19, 2013

It’s a feeling Exeter-West Greenwich senior Kara Shaw had only experienced once in the previous four years prior to last Thursday’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of the East Greenwich girls soccer team.
It’s something Jack Livsey – a senior captain for the Knights’ boys team – hadn’t seen since his freshman season, when EWG lost four games and finished as runner-up in Division III.
Now, both knew that an ‘L’ was all but unavoidable this season with the girls team moving up from Division II to Division I and the boys team reeling from graduating 14 seniors.

Avs surge late for win in opener over Knights

September 19, 2013

EAST GREENWICH – In the end the score looked much like one would expect with a reigning Division III runner-up taking on team that finished below .500 a year ago in Division IV
But looks can be deceiving.
That was the case last Friday night as the teams from East Greenwich and Exeter-West Greenwich took to Carcieri Field for an inter-divisional contest to open their 2013 seasons. Through the first three quarters, the Avengers and the Scarlet Knights were locked up in a tight battle until a pair of interceptions broke the game open, propelling East Greenwich to a 34-17 win.
