Knights dealing with changes

September 19, 2013

WEST GREENWICH—Losing
It’s a feeling Exeter-West Greenwich senior Kara Shaw had only experienced once in the previous four years prior to last Thursday’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of the East Greenwich girls soccer team.
It’s something Jack Livsey – a senior captain for the Knights’ boys team – hadn’t seen since his freshman season, when EWG lost four games and finished as runner-up in Division III.
Now, both knew that an ‘L’ was all but unavoidable this season with the girls team moving up from Division II to Division I and the boys team reeling from graduating 14 seniors.

Avs surge late for win in opener over Knights

September 19, 2013

EAST GREENWICH – In the end the score looked much like one would expect with a reigning Division III runner-up taking on team that finished below .500 a year ago in Division IV
But looks can be deceiving.
That was the case last Friday night as the teams from East Greenwich and Exeter-West Greenwich took to Carcieri Field for an inter-divisional contest to open their 2013 seasons. Through the first three quarters, the Avengers and the Scarlet Knights were locked up in a tight battle until a pair of interceptions broke the game open, propelling East Greenwich to a 34-17 win.

EG Spikers roll Cranston West

EAST GREENWICH – There may not have been many given the number of returning players off of a successful 2012 squad, but any doubts the East Greenwich High School girls volleyball team should be considered amongst the best in Division II have already been squashed, just two weeks into the season.

EG shuts out EWG for fourth win

September 19, 2013

WEST GREENWICH—Playing through adversity has become a common practice for the East Greenwich girls soccer team.
Before she had even stepped on the practice field last season the Avengers lost star defender Marissa Light to a knee injury, yet the team had enough talent that after some position shuffling made their way into the playoffs.
Now a senior captain, Light is back on the field for the Avengers this fall and couldn’t be more excited to return.

Chargers off to undefeated start

September 19, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT. – Though the season may be but two weeks old, any who thought that last year’s 7-5-2 season for the Chariho girls soccer team was a mere aberration from a decade of sub-.500 play can just about put those doubts to rest. Tuesday’s 2-1 home win over Moses Brown makes it four wins in four games in 2013 for the Chargers.
“This is a first for Chariho in I don’t know how many years. It’s nice. The girls are ecstatic,” said Chargers coach Brittney Godbout. “…We have a very young spirited team and when they want it, they go get it. It’s nice to see.”

Chargers settle for draw

September 19, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—Last season the Chariho boys soccer team left plenty of points in the standings on the field and Monday the Chargers (1-1-2 Division I) left two after settling for a 2-2 tie with Hope (2-0-1 D-I)
“We let two points slip towards the end because we had a lot of opportunities,” Chariho coach Tyler Hartshorn said. “The fitness factor kind of came in for us and we just didn’t put them away.”
Rather than a criticism though, it is more a testament to where the Chargers have come in a year as last season’s game against the Blue Wave is a perfect example.

Too many penalties for ’Gansett against Chariho Friday night

September 19, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—For the first time this preseason the Narragansett football team had its full stable of talented running backs available.
Senior Reed Nelson and junior Deontae Stanley each sat out against South Kingstown in Injury Fund the previous week but Friday night against Chariho each played fairly well.
That was about where the positives ended for the Mariners though as too many penalties – most of which personal fouls – cost them in a 20-14 Charger victory.

Chariho’s depth too much for Narragansett, EWG in opener

September 19, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—Talent at the top is important but in cross country depth is king.
Chariho didn’t have a boy or girl finish first in the season opening races with Narragansett and Exeter-West Greenwich Monday afternoon yet each team won their dual meet by a comfortable margin.
“A lot of people have stepped up and a lot of people have done their work over the summer,” Chariho girls coach Diane Leith-Doucett said. “We’ve got some good new freshmen in that mix and then people came back. We’re just deeper this year.”

Quality non-league win for SK

September 19, 2013

WEST WARWICK — It was hard to figure out which team was trying to snap a 12-game losing streak and which team came into the season with Super Bowl aspirations Saturday at Maznicki Field.
The South Kingstown football team, which went winless in the merciless meat grinder that is Division I last year, scored the first 28 points of its non-league contest against a very talented West Warwick squad, which reached the Division II semifinals last year.

Prout couldn’t close out Coventry

September 19, 2013

COVENTRY — With every Abby Lyons kill and every Ally Thomas dig it looked like the Prout volleyball team was going to take the opening game from Coventry Monday night.
The Crusaders, just like North Kingstown the week before, had a late lead on the defending state champions and a chance to dent Coventry’s aura of invincibility.
But, just like the Skippers, the Crusaders simply couldn’t weather the Oakers’ onslaught. Coventry scored the final four points of the opening game and then won 50 of the match’s final 75 points to earn a 25-23, 25-16, 25-9 Division I-South victory.
