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

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.

North boys, girls each have talent

September 14, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – The tradition of excellence for North Kingstown High School cross country, both boys and girls, is long standing and well known throughout the state. It is also a tradition that is more than likely to continue through the fall of 2013.

Progress slow for EWG girls team as it rebuilds

September 14, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – There are strength in numbers, as the old saying goes, and those numbers, or perhaps lack thereof, will be the most intriguing subplot of the 2013 season for the Exeter-West Greenwich girls cross country team.
Following a brief hiatus, the team that almost wasn’t returns to action this fall with a fully rebuilt roster and a recently appointed coach at the helm as the Scarlet Knight girls look to reestablish themselves as part of a rebuilding program that has seen just five wins combined by either gender in the last three seasons.

NK dropped by Oakers in three

NORTH KINGSTOWN — If the Coventry volleyball team wasn’t sure there was a target on its back following last year’s state title, the Oakers found out Monday night in a Division I-South showdown with long-time rival North Kingstown.
The Skippers, who were coming off a big win over Prout to start the season, used the energy of their home crowd to take the first game to the Oakers and grab leads of 21-19 and 25-24.
