NORTH KINGSTOWN– When two rival teams meet, especially if their schools are separated by less than fifteen miles, there’s usually tension and emotions could flare. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, South Kingstown visited North Kingstown not just for the win, but bragging rights for the weekend.
The North Kingstown bats removed any drama from the game as the Skippers (10-1) scored three runs in the fourth and two more in the sixth while on their way to a 9-3 victory. Senior captain Tyler Lamarre was crushing the ball all day, as he went 3-4 with three RBI’s including a solo homer in the fifth inning. Senior pitcher Nicholas Mongeon was sensational on the hill, pounding the strike zone all day. Through five innings, he only surrendered two runs and struck out seven batters. It was a great game for Lamarre and Mongeon, who appear to be great prospects for Stonehill College next season. Despite the struggles for the Rebels offensively, Brian Douglas had two hits for the South Kingstown as they were able to score some runs late in the game. South Kingstown missed some opportunities with runners on base, stranding five runners during the game.
