WARWICK – Bishop Hendricken jumped out to an early lead on Mount St. Charles and didn’t look back en route to a 5-3 win at Thayer Arena Friday night.
The Hawks put in three goals in the first period, by Andrew Hopgood, Eric Edwards and Brandon Mitchell. The Mounties couldn’t keep pace despite two goals from senior Patrick Holmes, one unassisted and one from an assist by Justin D'Abrosca.
Also scoring were Jason Comeau and Brandon Waterman for Hendricken, and Joseph A. Sanchioni for Mount.
LINCOLN – Friday night marked the homecoming of Davies Tech senior tri-captain/forward Waleska Kelly, and she sure made the most of it.
Kelly, who had suffered a stroke while playing in a summer high school basketball league in July of 2013, had been granted a waiver by Rhode Island Interscholastic League officials to play a fifth year, and admitted being excited about returning to compete.
WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles coach Dave Belisle doesn’t want to sound the alarm, but also won’t deny the importance of Friday’s matchup with longtime rival Bishop Hendricken at Warwick’s Thayer Arena.
“They’re all big games, but December games are just as important,” said Belisle.
Keeping pace in head-to-head matchups will be essential for the Mounties to make noise in the Championship Division race. To date, Mount and Hendricken have each lost to currently unbeaten La Salle Academy.
PROVIDENCE – Despite Burrillville High’s 47-31 Division II/A-B crossover loss to Hope on Thursday night, head coach Justin Switzer admitted he saw some positives from his rather young squad.
He carries just one senior, and his roster is sprinkled with six freshmen and a sophomore, but the experience is beginning to show.
CUMBERLAND â€” Junior tri-captain Kayleigh Canavan expected to swim rather well in Cumberland Highâ€™s Division I season opener against Smithfield on Tuesday afternoon, but what she accomplished, frankly, threw her for a loop.
Canavan not only manufactured two of her best times ever while capturing the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breaststroke, but she also mustered a superb 50 breaststroke leg in the 200 medley relay to pace her Clippers to an easier-than-expected 55-38 triumph over the Sentinels at the Aquatic Center.
In Rhode Island interscholastic girls’ hockey, depth is the buzz word amongst those who follow the game.
Talk to the head coaches at Mount St. Charles, Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op and Burrillville/Ponaganset Co-op and their responses about the size of their rosters will tell you plenty about their overall outlooks on the season.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” After playing horribly at the tail end of the initial half and the first part of the second, Lincoln High manufactured an 19-3 flurry over the final 7:29 to edge North Smithfield, 49-45, in a R.I. Injury Fund opener on Monday night.
Thanks to senior tri-captain Devon Deragonâ€™s pretty fast-break lay-in at that juncture of the game, the Northmen seemed destined to reign with a 42-30 cushion. But the Lions took advantage of several miscues by the hosts to move to 1-0.
WOONSOCKET — Thanks to a personal donation from a noted Olympic runner, outdoor track will return to the sports roster at Woonsocket Middle School next spring for the first time since the program was cut four years ago in a fiscal belt-tightening move.
BURRILLVILLE â€” The Burrillville Panthers Pee-Wee team finished its season with a flourish, capturing the Super Bowl in the Rhode Island Pre Teen league.
The Panthers defeated the Washington County Raiders in a contest that took place Nov. 23 at Providenceâ€™s Conley Stadium. Washington County came into the game with a 10-0-1 record while Burrillville stood at 8-2 with both losses coming against the Raiders.
Super Bowl MVP honors went to Burrillville's 55 Dean Ayotte, who plays full back and linebacker.
