SK soccer goes 0-for-2 against rival Skippers

September 26, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN – When North plays South, the intensity always takes a step up and with the recent struggles of late for the girls soccer teams of North and South Kingstown, it was the kind of game both needed when they met Wednesday night at NK’s Perry Athletic Complex, from which North came away with a 1-0 win.

Cross-town battle goes to Crusaders

September 19, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—Aside from the obvious proximity between South Kingstown and Prout, Wednesday’s Division I-South girls volleyball game was a critical contest given the path each squad had worn through the first third of the season.
The Rebels (1-2 D-I South) and Crusaders (2-2 D-I South) each entered the game having beaten Chariho but lost to both North Kingstown and Coventry, meaning third place – and potentially playoff seeding down the line – was up for grabs.

ON THE EDGE: Surf up for contest at Misquamicut

September 19, 2013

Waves have been hard to come by for the past two months.
Contest organizers kept their fingers crossed, in hopes of having surf for the 2nd Annual “Catch A Curl” ESA contest, held this past Saturday. ESA kids had a great time in some fun surf, with the event held at the Westerly Town Beach.
“We were very fortunate to get sunny skies, warm air temperatures, and nice surf for the second straight year,” contest director Mistral Dobson said. “The level of surfing was up several notches this year for sure.”

’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

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.
