PROVIDENCE- The Narragansett Mariners have had their mid-season struggles in the last couple of games. The team was looking to get back on winning track this past Saturday afternoon at Hope High School.
The Mariners cruised to an easy victory on Saturday afternoon, defeating Hope, 42-16.
The Narragansett victory, led by a 28 point second quarter scoring outburst, snaps a three-game losing streak by the team, and gives them a 4-3 record on the season.

PONGAGANSET- 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 Boy's and Girl's 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.
BURRILLVILLE â€” With one game left on the regular season schedule, the South Kingstown field hockey team were poised to continue their four-game shutout streak on the road against Burrillville, but the Broncos (7-7-1) have been hanging on by a string, desperate for a win to enter the postseason with a positive record as the sixth seed.
PAWTUCKETâ€” The South Kingstown Rebels were the best team in all of Division II tennis this season. With an undefeated season, the Rebels were just one victory away from completing their undefeated season with a Division II championship.
However, on Sunday afternoon at Slater Park, their championship hopes fell just short, as the team lost to the Lincoln High School, 4-3.
COVENTRYâ€” As dominant as the Coventry volleyball team has been over the last five seasons, the Oakers never seem to play their best volleyball on Mondays.
That wasnâ€™t the case Monday night when a young South Kingstown team made the trip north for a Division I-South encounter. Led by senior outside hitter Jill Ward and junior setter Sarah McGrath, the Oakers made sure there would be no thought of an upset.
EXETER-WEST GREENWICHâ€”The Lady Scarlet Knightsâ€™ volleyball team has remained perfect through the first 14 matches of the season and on Monday night Prout came to town trying to end that fantastic streak, but Exeter-West Greenwich wouldnâ€™t budge and held on strong with another 3-0 defeat of the Crusaders; this time at their place.
PROVIDENCEâ€” If the East Greenwich Avengers field hockey team wanted revenge against one opponent from their schedule, it would most definitely be defeating Moses Brown on the road to Providence for Columbus Day. The Avengers certainly lived up to that standard by dramatically shutting out the Quakers 2-0.
