South had its chances to beat Rams

October 20, 2013

PROVIDENCE—The Division I football season is just four weeks old but it is already shaping up to be a wild finish.
Friday South Kingstown (3-2, 1-2 D-I) – fresh off a thrilling win over Portsmouth (4-1, 3-1 D-I) the week prior – dropped a 27-16 decision at La Salle (5-1, 3-1 D-I), whose only loss of the season came to the Patriots in week one.
Given that Cranston West, East Providence and Tolman have started 0-4 – while Barrington 3-0 and Hendricken 4-0 – the stage is setting up for a potential battle for two playoff spots between the Rebels, Patriots, Rams and Cranston East.

Mariners still undefeated after rout of Wizards

September 28, 2013

WEST WARWICK — The undefeated Narragansett volleyball team easily won the first two games of Wednesday night’s clash with West Warwick before the Wizards opened up a four-point lead midway through the third game.
It would’ve been easy for the Mariners to chalk the game up as a loss and win the contest in the next game, but that’s not the mentality Narragansett first-year coach Abby Hummel has ingrained in the team.

Two-hour match clinched defeat

September 28, 2013

NARRAGANSETT—As the night crept forward and lights buzzed, the sounds of tennis rackets rhythmically persisted Tuesday evening at Sprague Park.
In a match that started some two hours earlier ’Gansett’s Brooke McGreen and Ashley Kennedy pushed on, deadlocked in a battle with Westerly’s Margo Douglas and Katie Kuzmic with the overall match on the line.
Fatigue – both mental and physical – had clearly set in for both sides as follow throughs lacked the vigor they once had.

So far, so good for EWG tennis

September 28, 2013

As much as every coach wants to win every match most will admit that as long as they see improvement they’ll leave a game satisfied.
For the Exeter-West Greenwich girls tennis team, Tuesday’s match at Scituate was a concrete example that the Knights are better than they were at the start of September.
After opening the season by getting swept at home by the Spartans EWG gave Scituate all it could handle Tuesday before falling 5-2.

Skippers win wild 2OT game

September 28, 2013

WEST WARWICK — Through the first two games of the young football season it appears North Kingstown is finally buying what coach Joe Gilmartin has been selling them since the start of last season, while West Warwick still hasn’t heeded the words of coach Shane Lagor.
The Wizards, who came into the season with Super Bowl dreams dancing in their heads, couldn’t score a touchdown in either of its overtime opportunities, while North Kingstown finally made the most of its chances in the second overtime.

Chargers respond after defeat

September 28, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—The goal of any team in any sport is to get off to a strong start but given the way things went last time out for the Chariho girls soccer team, Monday’s first 10 minutes were particularly important.
Heading into Saturday afternoon’s non-league contest with Division II Westerly the Chargers were flying high, sitting at a perfect 4-0-0 atop the Division III-A standings.
Then – like the high pitched buzz of an alarm clock – Chariho got a wakeup call courtesy of a 4-0 Bulldog victory.
