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.

COVENTRY — In just two days the Coventry girls soccer team went from a team that could barely muster a shot against Portsmouth to beating one of the contenders for the Division I title.
Just two days after being comprehensively beaten by Portsmouth in a game where the score line didn’t indicate the Patriots’ true domination, the Oakers recorded what could be considered their biggest victory since moving up to Division I in 2008.

PROVIDENCE—It wasn’t 62 points, but the Exeter-West Greenwich football team very well could have scored that many if it had so desired.
The Scarlet Knights – who played up at Division I Cranston East and Division III East Greenwich in their two preseason contests – rolled over the Providence Country Day/Wheeler/Juanita Sanchez Co-op 35-14 in their league opener Saturday afternoon at Conley Stadium.

Skippers win wild 2OT game

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

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.

Oakers had their way in opener

September 28, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—Upon first glance, the Coventry football team’s offensive and defensive line doesn’t have the type of size that strikes fear into the opposition.
What the Oakers lack in stature they more than made up for in ferocity Friday night as the Coventry line – led by senior captains Steven Felkel, Chris Hebert and Tyler Willet – led the way to a 28-0 rout of the Chargers.

Chariho holding its own

September 28, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—It was a slow start for the Chariho field hockey team Monday afternoon but once the goals started coming they came in bunches against Cranston East.
“Especially my forwards, they always seem to have a bit of a slow start but then once they get in that groove [they’re good],” Chariho coach Johannah LaFountain said.
“That right there shows our youth. Once they get in that groove and especially when Ari [Alfiero] starts getting a lot of condfidence with the ball she really sets the tone for the rest of the forwards.”
