Key win for Prout over Exeter-West Greenwich

October 20, 2013

WEST GREENWICH — It went down to the wire as the Exeter-West Greenwich boys soccer team hosted Prout last Friday.

NARRAGANSETT — The Narragansett football team improved to 3-1 in Division III and 3-2 overall Saturday after a 36-14 home win over Ponaganset.

Crossbar unkind to ’Gansett in defeat

October 20, 2013

COVENTRY — Sometimes the difference between a win and a loss is the width of a crossbar.
That was the case last Thursday afternoon for the Coventry and Narragansett boys soccer teams. Just a minute before halftime Mariner junior Jonathan Tartaro slammed a shot off Domenic Aguiar’s crossbar.
With the game still scoreless just minutes into the second half, Coventry junior midfielder Sam Burton ripped a shot from the top of the box. The ball looped over goalie Austin McKanna, ricocheted off the bottom of the crossbar and bounced into the net to lead the Oakers to a 1-0 Division II win.

PROVIDENCE—For a team that’s struggled to finish its scoring chances this season the South Kingstown boys soccer squad certainly picked a good day to find its touch around the net.
Friday the Rebels (8-2-0 Division I) emerged from a wild, back-and-forth second half to secure a 4-3 victory at Hope (5-4-1 Division I).
“We’ve been getting a little better at that,” SK coach Scott Rollins said of his team’s ability to finish chances. “Today was weird because it was our defense that let us down a little bit but hey, win is a win and this is a tough place to play.”

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.
