R.I. High School Football | Seniors to take one final bow in annual All-Star Game

June 22, 2015

CUMBERLAND – When Toll Gate High head coach Jim Stringfellow came calling, Josh Lima, who holds the same position at Cumberland, couldn’t and wouldn’t say no.

Stringfellow had asked him back in April to serve as his offensive coordinator for the East team of the third annual Rhode Island All-Star Football Game, slated for Saturday, June 27, at Johnston High School, and Lima jumped at the chance.

Commentary | McGair: Five years later, Little League teammates challenge for high school supremacy

June 20, 2015


CUMBERLAND – Given the success of the town’s two Little League programs over the past half-decade, it seems appropriate to label Cumberland a pure baseball community in the summertime – a town that rallies around its all-star squads and takes pride in each league’s accomplishments.

Cumberland Baseball | Clippers comes up short in epic Game 3 against Hendricken for D.I title

June 18, 2015


PAWTUCKET – It was right there for Cumberland’s taking.

On two separate occasions Thursday night, the Clippers had three-time state champion Bishop Hendricken against the ropes. There was a surefire double-play ball in the ninth inning that instead was a throwing error resulted in the Hawks scoring the tying run.

That was hard to watch, but then came the 10th inning where Cumberland loaded the bases with no outs and failed to capitalize. It was a huge chance squandered.

Burrillville baseball | Broncos capture Div. III state championship with 1-0 win over J Sanchez

June 18, 2015


PROVIDENCE  –  Immediately after senior southpaw Colin Murphy had fielded Eriberto Collado’s grounder and tossed to first for the final out on Wednesday evening, he turned to his Burrillville High infielders, threw his glove in the air and allowed them to tackle him.

It took mere seconds for Murphy, now under a whole lot of poundage, to fall to the turf closest to the Broncos’ third-base dugout, and he had no qualms with the pile-on.

Cumberland Baseball | O'Neill, Calabro guide Clippers to Game 1 win over previously-unbeaten Hendricken

June 16, 2015

PAWTUCKET – Cumberland High skipper Andy Tuetken knew long before the start of this R.I. Division I Tournament championship set that upsetting top-ranked and unbeaten Hendricken would be a tall order.
He nevertheless understood his never-say-die squad was peaking at the right time, especially after producing a pair of impressive semifinal wins against a Lincoln team that had been rolling.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | MIRACLE FINISH: Cardiac Mounties deliver walk-off victory over Tolman in Game 1 of Division II finals

June 16, 2015

PAWTUCKET – For the better part of seven innings, Tolman High seemed destined to clinch the opener of its R.I. Division II Tournament best-of-three championship series against Mount St. Charles.

Senior righty Alex Lopez pitched himself out of trouble time after time, with help, of course, from his defense, especially freshman second baseman Kyle Depatie, who managed seven assists and a putout.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | READY TO TAKE AIM: Mounties to meet Tolman with Div. II title on the line

June 15, 2015

PAWTUCKET – Virtually every time Tolman High meets Mount St. Charles on the diamond, Tigers' mentor Theo Murray mentions his personal history with the Woonsocket Catholic school.

It seems back in 1992, when Murray represented Shea as a standout senior third/first baseman, his Raiders held a precarious lead over the Mounties in the R.I. Division II Tournament losers' bracket final. In the end, however, MSC prevailed with a late rally, 7-6, eliminating Shea from a berth opposite Westerly, the eventual state champion.

Cumberland Baseball | Clippers ready for challenge against undefeated Hendricken in Div. I finals

June 15, 2015

CUMBERLAND – Because they competed in different leagues within Division I, Cumberland High didn't face fellow state finalist Hendricken during the regular season, but that doesn't mean Clippers' first-year skipper Andy Tuetken hasn't done his homework.

He knows full well what his club is up against when the two meet in the opener of the best-of-three D-I championship set, slated for today at 6 p.m. inside McCoy Stadium.
