Chariho caps off tremendous season

November 7, 2013

NORTH SCITUATE—Contrary to what most high school students are likely to believe, Hall and Oates is not the generic supermarket brand of Raisin Bran.
The popular late ’70s, early ’80s duo, however, was responsible for the Billboard Top 100 No. 1 song in early November of 1981, ‘Private Eyes.’
At the same time the Chariho girls cross country team had its eyes set on finishing off a tremendous season; second in Class B with and 8-1 record and runner up at the state championship meet.

EAST GREENWICH—For seniors Hollie Pryor, Elana Lamont, Emily Manning, Alexis Marsella and Haley Wilcox there’s no way around it; last Wednesday’s loss to La Salle stung.

Islanders pull away from ’Gansett late

November 7, 2013

NARRAGANSETT – Saturday was meant to be a big day for the Narragansett football team. Not only was it senior day for 17 Mariners, but facing a similar two-loss Middletown team, it was a contest rife with playoff implications for both sides.
The Mariners kept it tight, but a late explosion by the Islanders helped them pull ahead and run away with a 27-7 victory.

Crusaders advance in shootout

November 7, 2013

WAKEFIELD – It was a loss that sat with Prout boys soccer coach Tim Ryan all offseason, fuel for the upcoming year.
Heavily favored, his Crusaders were upset by a sixth seeded Davies team, 3-0, in the 2012 quarterfinals.
There was no looking past them this time, but history still nearly repeated itself on Saturday as the 11th seeded Patriots pushed Prout to the brink in the Division III quarterfinals, before the Crusaders pulled out the 2-1 win in penalty kicks.

Semis up next for Rebels

November 7, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE – It was a night of ups and downs for the South Kingstown girls volleyball team on Monday night.
It was a very bleak start to the night, but the Rebels overcame and escaped East Providence with a 11-25, 27-25, 25-23, 14-25, 15-7 win in the Division I quarterfinals over the Townies.
“Scary there for a while,” said South coach Chris Fagan. “A lot of guys are sick. They’re just getting over it. …Took a couple games to warm-up with the weekend.
“[Playing on Friday] would have been better for us because of the momentum coming off Prout.”

PROVIDENCE—Down one of its top player, the Prout girls volleyball team gave Division I-North regular season champ Classical all it could handle in the opening round of the D-I playoffs Thursday.
Though not for lack of effort, the Crusaders ultimately couldn’t keep pace with the Purple as Classical advanced to the D-I semifinals thanks to its 25-20, 19-25, 25-12, 25-19 victory over Prout.
“They played the best they did all season,” Prout coach Katie Walsh said by phone Monday. “They really wanted to win that game.”

SK girls miss on top six

November 7, 2013

NORTH SCITUATE—Last fall the South Kingstown girls cross country went into the RI State Championships as Class B champs and hopeful for a top six spot.
Unfortunately for the Rebels, when everything settled they found themselves on the outside looking in at a top six spot and the berth to the New England Championships that goes with it.
Sunday afternoon at Ponaganset High School’s Covered Bridge Trail history repeated itself as SK finished in eighth place to once again miss out on New Englands.

SK rolls Central Falls, into semis

November 7, 2013

WAKEFIELD – Throughout the regular season scoring had been a bane for the South Kingstown boys soccer team.
Though the Rebels were near the top of the Division I standings, that was mostly because of a defense that ranked second, giving up less than a goal a game, rather than their middle of the pack offense.
The playoffs, however, are like a new season and it was a new team that took to the pitch at Curtis Corner Middle School on Saturday night as the South Kingstown offense sparked for four goals as they ran Central Falls 4-1 in the RIIL Division I quarterfinals.

Rams put an end to South’s season

November 7, 2013

PROVIDENCE—There was no improbable upset when the South Kingstown girls soccer team faced La Salle Friday night in the Division I quarterfinals.
After knocking of the mighty Rams last postseason in a shootout La Salle got its revenge, holding off the Rebels for a 3-0 win.
Friday night South was in a hole almost from the moment it stepped on the field as 57 seconds into the game La Salle’s Haley Puglia got a foot on a bouncing ball in the box to put it past SK goalkeeper Bridget Montle.
