WOONSOCKET -- Mount St. Charles head coach Mary Green was unsure how rain would affect her team during the Mountiesâ€™ Division III Tournament quarterfinal with Burrillville/North Smithfield Co-op, so she was hoping the storm would hold off.
She didnâ€™t get her wish; right after the initial faceoff, the skies opened up. But her team responded to the downpour by pouring on the offense against the overmatched Broncos, scoring three goals in a 26-second span early in the first period, and rolling to a relatively easy 12-5 triumph over the Broncos
