EXETER-WEST GREENWICHâ€” There couldnâ€™t be a better time for the Exeter-West Greenwich girls soccer team to notch a win in the scoring column, after previously losing two straight games, falling to Portsmouth and Mt. Hope. That task may sound difficult as the South Kingstown Rebels, who sit quietly in third place of the Division I-South standings, came to town.
WESTERLY- The North Kingstown Skippers have been one of the best teams in Division II this season. Going into Friday night's game, the team had a 4-0 record, and were looking to improve upon it this past Friday night against Westerly at Westerly High School.
The Skippers were able to remain unbeaten, defeating Westerly on Friday night, 28-19.
The team improved to 5-0 this season with the victory. A two-score third quarter helped North Kingstown get the big road victory against Westerly on Friday night.
SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€” The South Kingstown Rebels are coming off one of their biggest games of the season from two weeks ago, as the team got their first victory of the season. The Rebels looked to carry that momentum and get their second consecutive win on Friday night against Cranston West at Curtis Corner Middle School.
Unfortunately, for the Rebels, South Kingstown didnâ€™t have enough offense to keep up with the Falcons, as Cranston West cruised to the 40-21 victory.
LINCOLNâ€”Volleyball season is almost at an end, and the more than twenty teams took part in the Koch Eye Volleyball Tournament this past Monday. The 15th annual tournament is a chance for teams to get ready for the playoffs, and build up on some of their skills for the final stretch of the season.
Going into the tournament on Monday at CCRI in Lincoln, the teams were split up into different divisions. The purpose of the tournament was to have teams play other teams that donâ€™t get to play each other in the regular season.
CHARIHO- The Chariho Chargers have been one of the best teams in all of Division III tennis this season. The Chargers have been one of the most improved teams from last season, and have a 9-1 record.
The Chargers suffered their first loss against North Smithfield on Tuesday night by the score of 6-1. It is the first defeat the Chargers have had all season.
NORTH KINGSTOWNâ€” After coming away with a 5-1 victory over North Kingstown last year in the Division I quarterfinal field hockey playoffs, East Greenwich was well-prepared for a similar outcome in last Fridayâ€™s matchup versus the Skippers, but North Kingstown wouldnâ€™t go down easy this time around.
EAST GREENWICHâ€”There couldnâ€™t have been a better outcome for East Greenwich football this past Friday night as they squared off against Classical in a duel that ended on the final scoring drive with the Avengers pulling away with the 20-14 upset win over The Purple.
