Post 39 snaps five-game losing skid

July 18, 2013

KINGSTON – It has been some time since South Kingstown Post 39 has taken the field and found themselves in the win column at game’s end.
Entering Monday night’s contest with Gershkoff Auto Body – Auburn Post 20, Post 39’s only win in July came via forfeit.
The team, however, carried over some strong play in their recent losses and finally translated it into a win, taking down Post 20 8-3 at the University of Rhode Island’s Bill Beck Field.
“I told them forget about that,” Post 39 coach Gary Lessard said of the losing streak. “We had a couple days off and now we’re on a roll.”

Narragansett’s tourney ends in Warwick

July 18, 2013

WARWICK—Most coaches will tell you getting off to a good start goes hand in hand with success.
Narragansett 9/10-Year Old All-Stars coach Jason Laurie is not one of those people.
Throughout the District 3 Tournament his squad has ritually started slowly but found a way to come from behind for the victory.
So when ’Gansett took a two-run lead after the first inning of Saturday’s District 3 Championship at Warwick Continental Laurie had a bad feeling.

Chariho 12’s fall short of district finals

July 18, 2013

CHARIHO — The journey ended far earlier than anyone associated with the Chariho Major Division all-star team would’ve hoped.
Chariho, which came out of the losers’ bracket last year to claim the District 3 title on its way to the 11-year-old state title, entered the Major Division tournament as the favorite, but the kids from Dow Field were knocked into the losers’ bracket by eventual District 3 champion Coventry American.

EG 11’s outslugged by SK

July 18, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – It was a tale of two teams for the South Kingstown National 11-Year Old All-Stars last week. After dropping their first game of the District 3 tournament in a runaway against Warwick Continental on Tuesday, the team came back on Thursday and did the same to their opponent, taking down East Greenwich by a score of 11-2 at Tuckertown Park.

EWG takes care of Chariho in extras

July 18, 2013

EXETER—After a dramatic, extra innings victory over a scrappy Chariho squad the Exeter-West Greenwich Junior Little League All-Stars are joining the senior team in the state tournament.
Tyler Lynch’s run in the top of the eighth inning proved to be the difference as EWG escaped with a 4-3 victory in the District 3 Championship Monday at Wawaloam Field.
“That was a terrific game,” EWG coach Jack Kaveny said. “If you’re going to have a championship game, that’s the kind of game you want where it’s in doubt and close the whole way.”

Exeter Seniors completes comeback vs. EG

July 18, 2013

After a lopsided game between the East Greenwich and Exeter-West Greenwich Senior Little League All-Stars last Thursday the two teams returned to action Friday for what turned into a back-and-forth championship battle.
The two teams alternated leads at Wawaloam Field all game but ultimately EWG emerged with a 12-8 victory and the District 3 Championship banner.
“It was a very good game,” East Greenwich coach Eric Barnes said by phone Wednesday. “A lot of offense.”

Wickford advances to District 3 Championship game

July 18, 2013

COVENTRY — Strong pitching and solid defense were the two reasons the Wickford and Coventry American 10/11-year-old all-stars reached Sunday’s District 3 winners’ bracket final.
Wickford, after an ugly first inning where two hits, a walk and an error allowed American to open the scoring, continued to pitch and defend well.

’Gansett going forward without Gee at the helm

July 18, 2013

NARRAGANSETT – Changes are on the horizon for the Narragansett High School boys basketball program.
Come next winter, not only will the Mariners be adjusting to a new lineup after losing key contributors from last year’s playoff squad, but they will be doing so while adjusting to a new head coach as David Gee has left the program after six seasons.
It is an adjustment process, however, that is already well underway as Narragansett is now five games into their summer season, once again playing in the high school summer league at Christofaro Park.

NK playing host to summer league

July 18, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN—It’s the league that almost wasn’t.
For the better part of the last decade, every summer the Community College of Rhode Island has hosted a league for Rhode Island girls high school basketball programs to help them stay in shape and keep their skills honed during the offseason.
It was a tradition that was set to continue in 2013, but once former head coach Kate Lynch left the CCRI program in early June, with no one to run the league, the school pulled the plug just two weeks before play was set to begin.

‘Wave’ of change for Ocean State

July 18, 2013

WAKEFIELD—If there’s one thing that should not be lost amidst the unexpected termination of manager Phil Davidson it’s this; the Ocean State Waves are playing good baseball.
The Waves may be just four games into the Rian McCarthy era – one officially as of Tuesday’s 6-5 victory over the Sanford Mainers at Old Mountain Field – but the change has had little effect on the field as Ocean State won its third straight.
