Mariners fall to unbeaten Titans

September 19, 2013

WARWICK – It was a tough start to the week for the Narragansett boys soccer team as it dropped their second straight game when they travelled north to face Toll Gate Monday afternoon at Goff Field.
Early mistakes proved costly for the Mariners, putting them in a hole from which they could not recover as Toll Gate went on to a 3-1 victory.

Rhody ends historic losing streak

September 19, 2013

ALBANY, N.Y. — If Rhode Island was going to snap its 15-game losing streak Saturday night against Albany, the Rams were going to have to take some chances. Chances like the one coach Joe Trainer took in overtime.
With the Rams clinging to a six-point lead in the extra session following a Justin Semmes touchdown and a missed extra point, Albany faced a third-and-8 at the URI 23. Instead of sitting back and allowing Albany quarterback Will Flacchi to survey the field, the Rams blitzed their linebackers and whipped Doug Johnson.

Prout cruises past Chariho in three

September 14, 2013

WAKEFIELD—A number of girls volleyball teams have found out so far this season that if you take a night off in Division I-South you’re not going to win.
Last Thursday the Crusaders’ didn’t have their ‘A’ game against North Kingstown and the result was a 25-15, 25-17, 25-12 loss to the Skippers.
“This is a very competitive division. If you take a day off you are going to lose,” Prout coach Katie Walsh said. “…[Against North Kingstown] it was just one of those days where we couldn’t get anything started and by the time we did it was the end of the match.”

Rebels were top of class last fall

BURRILLVILLE – With just days before the official start to their 2013 season, the South Kingstown High School boys and girls cross country teams descended upon Burrillville Middle School last Saturday to take part in the annual RIIL Cross Country Injury Fund Carnival.
The Rebels girls team enter the 2013 season coming off back-to-back Class B championships and a five year span that has seen them lose just four regular season meets. They got the Injury Fund festivities going for South looking to defend their Casewell Race title in the very first race of the day.

Crusaders hope for improvement

September 14, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – Running in the Southern Division, it can be hard for a team to get noticed competing annually against the likes of perennial powerhouses Chariho, North and South Kingstown.
While they may not yet have reached that level where they are getting the same notoriety as the Skippers, Rebels and Chargers, coaches around the division will note the Prout boys cross country program is quietly become one of the premier programs in the Southern Division.

Stoppage time score saves Mariners

NARRAGANSETT—How a team views a tie is all about how it happens.
The Narragansett boys soccer team, for example, was more than happy to leave Tuesday’s home contest against Mount Pleasant with a 1-1 decision thanks to some late heroics from senior Alec Cotroneo.
“The good news is we’ll get a point out of it,” Narragansett coach Ryan Kanaczet said. “We don’t know what the bad news is because we don’t know how this team’s going to fare.
“…Hopefully this team is a top five team in the division and we can say that tie wasn’t that bad.”

South leaves Woonsocket with win

September 14, 2013

WOONSOCKET – A fitting game to be played at a field that did not have a scoreboard.
Unaware of what had already transpired, fans who arrived late to Barry Field on Wednesday as the South Kingstown High School boys soccer team travelled north to play Woonsocket, could have easily assumed a rout was on as the Rebels dominated possession. Those in the know, however, saw a stymied Rebels attack that, despite their stranglehold on their opponent, escaped the Novans with a slim 2-0 victory.

Suburban Division champs have talent

September 14, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – Last fall saw the Coventry High School girls cross country team start its return to the dominant form the program became accustomed to in the mid-2000’s.
In 2012, the then young, somewhat inexperienced Oakers were a perfect 11-0 in the regular season to win a Suburban Division title. They placed third in both the Class A championship and state championship meets behind eventual New England champion Barrington High School and LaSalle Academy.
As the team embarks on the 2013 season, however, the Oakers are primed to take another step forward this fall.

Oaker girls make most of shots

COVENTRY — In its opening game of the season last week, the Coventry girls soccer team played very well against three-time Division II champion Exeter-West Greenwich but ended up losing by two goals.
The Oakers didn't play nearly as well Monday afternoon against visiting Cumberland, but the Oakers found a way to overcome the Clippers for the second straight season.

Coventry football team takes strides

September 14, 2013

CRANSTON — It’s hard to glean much from the Saturday’s Injury Fund football round robin at Cranston Stadium.
After all, it’s the first game of the season, only last two quarters and teams don’t spend the week preparing for the contests because they don’t count in the standings.
Yet two things became clear following Coventry’s contest with potential state champion Cranston East and West Warwick’s tussle with Cranston West:
The Oakers are going to be entertaining and the Wizards have the potential to win the program’s first Super Bowl since 2002.
