Mariners zap ’Bolts in opener

September 14, 2013

CRANSTON – It was a good start to the season for the Narragansett girls soccer team when they opened their 2013 schedule Friday at Cranston Stadium with a 5-3 win over Cranston East.
In the end, however, it may have been the lesson learned throughout the course of those 80 minutes, more so than victory, that proves to be the best building block for the Mariners to start on.

South Kingstown taking patient approach to season

EAST GREENWICH—Aside from maybe Moses Brown, you’d be hard pressed to find a tougher opponent to play in your Division I-South opener than the East Greenwich field hockey team.
The Avengers graduated just five seniors from last season’s D-I semifinalist squad and brought back two and three-year starters throughout the field.
That was the task charged to South Kingstown – a team still finding its way in its second year in D-I – Wednesday afternoon and the Rebels struggled against the more seasoned Avs in a 9-0 loss.

Mariners cruise to victory over Lions

NARRAGANSETT – So far, so good for the Narragansett girls tennis team.
There may not have been much for the Mariners to have gained or learned as they took on an inferior Lincoln team in their season opening match on Wednesday at Sprague Park, but the season still got itself off on the right foot as Narragansett did not drop a set en route to the 7-0 sweep of the Lions.
“It’s always good to get the first match going,” said Narragansett coach Peter Barlow. “Probably taking the long view, it’s better to have an easier one than a tough one. I always tell the girls, good first win.

WAKEFIELD – The South Kingstown girls soccer team got its 2013 season started in the right way Wednesday night, taking on Cranston West in its season opener at Curtis Corner Middle School.
The Rebels started off slow, but picked up their game in the second half and came away with a 3-1 win.
“It’s nice to get a win. It’s always nice to get a win,” said South Kingstown coach Toby Gibbons. “Happy for the girls, we really played some good soccer in the second half. Took us a half to get comfortable, but that happens early in the season.”

’Gansett victorious in opener

WARWICK—As it is for most teams this time of year, the Narragansett girls volleyball team is still shaking off the rust.
The Mariners – who are among a handful of preseason favorites to be contenders in Division II this season – kicked off their fall with a 25-16, 25-13, 25-21 victory over a less talented Pilgrim squad Tuesday.
“We did get a little relaxed when we got a lead but I loved it,” Narragansett coach Abby Hummel said. “I loved their effort, I thought they played well next to players and I liked how they’re looking.”

Rebels fall to defending champs

September 5, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—If Wednesday’s season opener proved anything to the South Kingstown and Coventry girls volleyball teams it was that both squads have a ways to go to get to where they want to be.
The Oakers entered the contest as the two-time defending Division I champs and for the most part played like it, securing a 25-14, 25-12, 25-18 victory.
Coventry coach Leo Bush knows though, if the Oakers want to defend their crown for the second straight year there is plenty of area for improvement.

Buglios combine to lead Oakers to win

September 5, 2013

PROVIDENCE — Coventry junior captain Ryan Buglio and his brother, freshman midfielder Matt, have played out what happened in the 67th minute of Tuesday’s season open against Classical many times over the years.
The elder Buglio played a perfect out-swinging corner to the far post where Matt Buglio rose above his defender and headed the ball off the left post and into the net to give the Oakers the lead.

Oakers aiming for D-III title

September 5, 2013

COVENTRY — The Coventry girls tennis team can no longer rely on the ‘A Team’ to carry it to the Division III finals. After the graduation of three of the team’s four singles players, girls whose first name don’t being with an A are going to have to fill in the holes.
The only returning member of the ‘A-Team’ junior Abby James is back at No. 1 singles and she is joined by a number of talented returning players who remember the sting of last year’s D-III title loss to Mt. Hope at Slater Park.

Skippers fighting to finish fall above .500

The wait has been long, but it is finally over.
“It’s good to finally have a competitive day,” said coach Victoria Tefft on Friday night as her North Kingstown girls volleyball squad prepared for their injury fund matches against Narragansett and East Greenwich.
Friday’s matches marked the final tune up for the NK Spikers as they prepare to make a run at their first winning season in three years.

NK looking to make strides

September 5, 2013

Year two of the rebuilding process for the North Kingstown football team is underway and so far things have gone well for the Skippers.
“We’re getting there,” says coach Joe Gilmartin, who led NK to a 1-6 record in Division II-B (4-7 overall) after three years in which the team’s only win came in a non-league game against Division III East Greenwich.
Gilmartin knows though, if the Skippers are going to be competitive they have a long way to go with the likes of West Warwick, Cumberland, Rogers, Central, Shea, Pilgrim and St. Raphael all competing in Division II-B.
