COVENTRY â€” The dream of an all-Pawtuxet Valley showdown for a spot in the Division II boys soccer semifinals has been vanquished.

SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€” It was exactly what the Rebels boys soccer team had hoped for: a playoff win against a Cumberland team that defeated them early on in the season, and the long-awaited return of their senior goal-scoring midfielderâ€”Michael Gross.
