Rebels pick up first win of season

May 3, 2013

WAKEFIELD – Relief at last.
There has been some frustration this season for the South Kingston softball team as the Rebels had come so close at times but could not break into the win column through their first six games this season.
A sigh of relief went up on Tuesday night, however, as the drought came to an end when South Kingstown routed Johnston, 12-2, in six innings.
“We needed it,” said South coach Joel Tuoni. “We’ve been doing some things in spurts and haven’t strung anything together so after six losses we needed to get a win.”

Rebels continue to roll in Div. II

May 3, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN–The South Kingstown boys lacrosse team controlled Cumberland for the majority of Saturday’s hard-fought Division II matchup on its way to an 8-3 victory.
Junior captain Chad Mitchell was a force for the Rebels, netting five goals and assisting on two others.
His points were also timely, breaking a tie game and scoring five of SK’s final six goals.
Both teams set a defensive tone early, exchanging turnovers and a few meager scoring opportunities.

Championship holdovers leading SK

May 3, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—For the South Kingstown boys volleyball team Monday’s match against one-win Barrington had all the makings of a trap game.
The Rebels were coming off an emotional sweep of rival Hendricken – whom SK beat in five games last season to capture the 2012 RIIL Boys Volleyball Division I Championship – and have a match with one-loss East Providence looming Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
“We were up for that match big time,” Fagan said of the meeting with Hendricken. “Ryan [Casci] had probably the best match of his career. He played amazing.”

May 3, 2013

WOOD RIVER JUNCTION – The Chariho boys tennis team put an exclamation point on a long week of tennis as it soundly defeated Scituate Friday.

Lacrosse struggles continue

WOOD RIVER JCT.—Starting a program is never easy.
Six games into the 2013 boys lacrosse season the Chariho boys lacrosse team has found out just how hard it can be as the Chargers dropped a 17-5 decision to Coventry Thursday, their sixth loss by seven goals or greater.
The learning curve has been a steep one for the first-year program but as any team that has established itself will tell you, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Perhaps no team knows that better than the Chargers’ opponent Wednesday.

Chargers take Southern showdown

May 3, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—Most days when a team shoots a 159 on the golf course it’s enough to get at least one win.
Most days.
Monday at Laurel Lanes Golf Course South Kingstown – behind a one-under-par 34 from senior McKinley Slade – shot a 159 but it wasn’t enough as it suffered losses to both Prout (157) and Chariho (156).
“We played well as a team,” Slade said. “I personally played pretty well today. I played just solid the whole time and I know 159 is usually a pretty good score.
“Today the course isn’t playing that hard so it’s understandable but what are you going to do?”

Avengers get key win over Wizards

May 3, 2013

WEST WARWICK — The East Greenwich boys volleyball team didn’t bring it in the opening game and was blown out by West Warwick.
The Wizards made the same mistake as the Avengers in three of the next four games and found itself in the same position.
After losing the first game because they simply couldn’t pass the ball to setter Jesse Brown, the Avengers took advantage of a litany of West Warwick mistakes to take the next two games. The Wizards dominated the fourth game, but more mistakes cropped up in the fifth game of a 15-25, 25-16, 25-23, 15-25, 15-12 EG Division II-South victory.

NK leaving opening loss in past

April 25, 2013

COVENTRY — The final score of Friday’s Division I-South game would indicate the young Coventry baseball team suffered its second straight heavy defeat.
But there’s a big difference between the terrible five innings the Oakers played Wednesday against Toll Gate and the solid seven innings they put together in a 9-1 defeat to reigning Division I-South champion North Kingstown.

NK falls in high scoring contest

April 25, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN – According to North Kingstown boys lacrosse coach Steve Alviti this season has gotten off to a “perplexing” start.
Not much became any clearer Monday as the Skippers dropped their third straight decision, a 17-10 loss to Barrington.
“I can’t tell you,” said a speechless Alviti following Monday’s contest. “This is how we’ve been playing.
“It’s just bad decision making. When we’re on the field we lose sight of things. We make some mistakes, let team’s get ahead of us and then we can’t get out of the hole. It’s been the same way the past three games.”
