Avengers top SK in road victory

May 8, 2014

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – What started as a pitching duel through the first two innings became scoring frenzy between the East Greenwich and South Kingstown baseball teams on Tuesday.

After losing this past Saturday, the Rebels looked to get back on track at their home field against East Greenwich. However, the Avengers were simply too much for the Rebels, as they defeated South Kingstown (6-6), 8-4. The Avengers got the bats going later in the game, by scoring three runs in the final inning. Right fielder Steven Shipley had two hits, including an RBI triple in the third inning to give the Avengers their first score of the game. Outfielder Peter Goretoy also had two hits for the East Greenwich. Senior pitcher Andrew Miner put on quite the show on the mound, striking out six batters in five innings.

Mariners top Chargers 186-197, fall to Coventry

May 8, 2014

NARRAGANSETT - Narragansett’s golf team had more than one encounter with Chariho this week, but the results were very different. The teams faced off on both Monday and Tuesday and though Narragansett came out on top both times, one call was far closer than the other.

It was a humbling experience for the Mariners; Coventry played very well under the same conditions, namely top Oaker, Jake Anderson who was two sub par after the first two holes with two birdies in a row. Anderson’s approach to the first pin brought him within three feet of the flag for a putt that he looked like he could have made in his sleep. Anderson finished with a match high score of 39.

WAKEFIELD – The series of events that unfolded during the Prout-hosted Exeter-West Greenwich baseball game on Wednesday were nothing short of bizarre. Between the cold front that rolled in just in time for the opening pitch to the several interruptions and abrupt ending to the matchup, the Crusaders and Knights had their hands full at The Prout School that afternoon.

Prout had a one run lead in the fourth, but the 2-1 score would not stand for long. What was a fast game quickly turned into a drawn out second half.
