COVENTRY â€” It wasnâ€™t always pretty and it certainly wasnâ€™t perfect, but the three-time defending state champion Coventry volleyball team, led by seniors Jill Ward, Lizzy Carpenter, Jessica Maguire, Katie Cronin and Kelly DiBiasio, made their final regular-season home match a memorable one.
Ward, who will go down as one of the best players in the programâ€™s storied history, had 16 kills, nine digs and two aces, while Carpenter chipped in with 10 kills to lead the Oakers to a 25-17, 25-16, 25-20 Division I-South victory over visiting Chariho Friday night.
COVENTRY â€” The dream of an all-Pawtuxet Valley showdown for a spot in the Division II boys soccer semifinals has been vanquished.
No. 6 Coventry, which came into the playoffs playing its best soccer of the season following regular-season wins over Cranston West and West Warwick, reverted back to the team earlier in the season which created opportunities and dominated possession, but failed to score a goal.
NORTH SCITUATE â€” The cross country season is wrapping up for both girls and boys this season. With the Class A Championship this past weekend, each team was looking for a strong finish to their fall season.
LaSalle Academy placed first for both boys and girls this past Saturday at the Class A Championship at Ponaganset.
For the girls, LaSalle's Eliza Rego placed first with a time of 18:13. The Rams took three of the top five spots this past Saturday at Ponaganset.
NORTH SMITHFIELDâ€” After the Narragansett Mariners had to rally throughout the season to make a trip to the playoffs, their first challenge was this past Wednesday night at North Smithfield High School against the Northmen.
Unfortunately, the Mariners had their season ended against the Northmen, losing a shootout, 5-2.
Entering the second-half, the two teams were tied, 2-2, after an exciting offensive display in the first half. The Northmen went on to score three unanswered goals to take the commanding lead in the second half, and send themselves to the Quarterfinal round.
SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€” It was exactly what the Rebels boys soccer team had hoped for: a playoff win against a Cumberland team that defeated them early on in the season, and the long-awaited return of their senior goal-scoring midfielderâ€”Michael Gross.
On Sept. 10. during South Kingstownâ€™s second game of the season, the Clippers came to town to spoil the Rebels chances of a 2-0 start by defeating them, 3-2.
WARWICKâ€” It only took one goal with two seconds left for the South Kingstown Rebels season to end this past Tuesday afternoon.
The Rebels were defeated in the Quarterfinal round against Warwick Vets, 1-0, on Tuesday afternoon.
After a closely contested first-half of play, Warwick Vets was able to take the lead with just two seconds on the clock. Lexi Santos-Smith scored the game-winning goal for Warwick, and sent the team to the Division II Semi-finals. One shot is all it took to end the Rebelâ€™s season.
