Chariho, EG tune up for season

September 14, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—As far as first rehearsals go, things went about as well as could be expected for the Chariho and East Greenwich football teams in their Injury Fund scrimmage at Curtis Corner Middle School Saturday.
Both squads left the 24-minute game – a 21-14 Avenger victory – feeling similarly, with plenty of room for improvement yet satisfied with the positives.

First rehearsal for SK, ’Gansett

September 14, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—For the South Kingstown football team Saturday’s Injury Fund contest with neighboring Narragansett was an opportunity to get back to the basics.
“We’ve been working hard all summer on the basics and we came out here and didn’t do anything too flashy, just ran our basic stuff and we need to harp on the things that can hurt you,” SK coach Eric Anderson said.
“Blown coverage, missing blocks, missing assignments, not being where you’re supposed to be, not being lined up correctly. Those are the things we’ll harp on Monday in film session.”

Rebels get first victory at Chariho's expense

WOOD RIVER JCT.—Good luck to the six girls volleyball teams stuck competing in Division I-South this season because they’re going to need it.
As expected, Coventry appears to again be the team to beat after getting off to a hot start with two straight three-set victories over South and North Kingstown, but the Oakers don’t look like the same team that flat out blew everyone out of the water at season’s end last fall.
Prout looks to have taken a step back but is still very competitive, Chariho will once again be tough and NK and SK have greatly improved from last season.

Rams hang tough, still fall to Stony Brook at Meade

KINGSTON—Generally speaking, there’s never much to feel good about after suffering a 24-0 loss.
Good wasn’t the word University of Rhode Island football coach Joe Trainer used to describe how he felt after his Rams’ loss to Stony Brook Saturday by that score, but the fifth-year URI coach did seem optimistic after watching his team play.
“That was a difficult loss against a very good football team,” Trainer said. “They beat our champion last year pretty good, they kicked their butts in the first round of the playoffs [in] Villanova and we knew we were going to have our hands full.

Mariners zap ’Bolts in opener

September 14, 2013

CRANSTON – It was a good start to the season for the Narragansett girls soccer team when they opened their 2013 schedule Friday at Cranston Stadium with a 5-3 win over Cranston East.
In the end, however, it may have been the lesson learned throughout the course of those 80 minutes, more so than victory, that proves to be the best building block for the Mariners to start on.
