WOONSOCKET â€“ The boys from Mount St. Charles had hoped their handsome new tennis courts would be ready for at least one of their matches last spring.
That never happened, leaving the girlsâ€™ squad with the exciting opportunity to christen the complex during its fall campaign.
The Mountie males, however, did get their chance during a Division II/Suburban A opening-day clash against Tolman on Tuesday afternoon, eventually strolling away with a 7-0 victory.
Veteran Mount St. Charles head coach Cliff Matthews couldn't help but pitch a bit of levity when asked how his girls' softball team should fare when Division I fast-pitch action begins this week.
â€śIt's not about Lincoln or Cumberland, La Salle or Coventry; it's all about the Mounties!â€ť he laughed. â€śTell (Lions' mentor) Dick Ryan we're coming after them.â€ť
Naturally, he was joking. How could he not? Lincoln hasn't lost a game since 2011.
Hundreds of firefighters representing fire departments throughout the Blackstone Valley will be traveling today and tomorrow to attend the funerals of fallen Boston Firefighters Edward Walsh and Michael Kennedy, who were killed one week ago in a nine-alarm fire in Bostonâ€™s Back Bay.
