One goal does the trick for Chariho field hockey

October 30, 2014

CHARIHO— It’s not every day that you get to witness an opening round playoff game between the third and sixth seeds extend into three overtimes. That happened to be the case in Chariho on Tuesday evening between the Chargers and Broncos, as both teams went head-to-head in the Division II field hockey quarterfinals with efforts to keep their playoff dreams alive by moving into the next round.
It’s almost unfair to specifically highlight one team’s success in a grueling match, which lasted roughly 86 minutes overall.

EG sixth-grader raising money for Sudan

October 30, 2014

EAST GREENWICH- As the holidays and the season of giving approach, one East Greenwich 6th grader is raising money to give the ultimate gift to one small community in South Sudan, the gift of fresh, drinkable water.
12-year-old Alex Gray seems wise beyond his years as he attempts to raise $5,000 towards building a new well in a community located in South Sudan, Africa. This well would allow for not only easy access to water, but it would give the community a place to thrive and build upon.
