Triple play, sixth-inning rally help Mount top Novans

April 17, 2014

WOONSOCKET — On an afternoon when Mount St. Charles pulled off an astonishingly spectacular triple play, head coach Cliff Matthews and Co. doubled its pleasure with a solid 5-2 victory over city rival Woonsocket at the upper campus field Thursday.
The feat came with the Mounties guarding a tenuous 1-0 advantage in the top of the fourth inning. It had opened with junior Taylor Pawlina’s ability to reach on a shortstop bobble, and classmate Amanda Nunez moved her to second with a hard single down the left-field line.

Palmieri's five-hitter helps Lincoln defeat Woonsocket

April 16, 2014

WOONSOCKET — For Lincoln High junior Mason Palmieri, it doesn’t get much better these days.

On Monday, Palmieri verbally committed to join the Bryant University ‘9’ beginning in the fall of 2015. On Wednesday, the pitcher with the towering mound presence tossed a complete-game five-hitter in Lincoln’s 4-2 victory over Woonsocket at Renaud Field.

Injured Barnes anxious to return to PawSox's rotation

April 16, 2014

PAWTUCKET — The right shoulder tenderness that grounded Matt Barnes for the majority of spring training has subsided to the point where the Red Sox pitching prospect believes it’s only a matter of time before he departs Fort Myers.

When Barnes will be officially granted exile so that he can take the mound for the PawSox … let’s just say there’s a cloak and dagger element in play.

“I don’t know when I’m leaving, but all I know is that I feel real good right now,” said Barnes from Florida earlier this week. “I’ll let the people who are in charge make the important decisions.”

PAWTUCKET — It’s still April and high school baseball teams continue to search for their identity while Mother Nature struggles to find her own winning form.
On a blustery Wednesday afternoon at Vets Park field, a flock of geese looked for food in the barren outfield as Cumberland and St. Raphael Academy squared off, each seeking a badly-needed victory.

MSC overcomes opening-game loss to spike La Salle

April 15, 2014

WOONSOCKET -- The opening game was one to erase from the memory bank. The next three showed why Mount St. Charles is perfect in the Division I-North ranks and could be one of the teams to beat come tournament time in June.
After watching a 24-16 lead evaporate in a first-game loss to La Salle, the Mounties came out for the next game firing on all cylinders and never took their foot off the accelerator in fashioning a 3-1 victory over their visiting rivals.

Carlton once again magnificant on the mound for the Northmen

April 14, 2014

SCITUATE --- One third of its way through its Division II-North schedule, North Smithfield is looking like not only the team to beat in the North, but also one of the elite squads in the entire division.

The Northmen continued their spectacular start on Monday afternoon by winning for the fifth time in as many games, defeating Scituate by a 5-1 score at Manning Field behind an 11-hit attack and another masterful outing by ace pitcher Karissa Carlton.

Burrillville field hockey mentor thrilled with national coaching laurel

April 14, 2014

BURRILLVILLE – Not long after Susan Burgess turned 17, back in the spring of 1978, someone asked her to coach an Uxbridge “Lassie Softball League” team of 12- and 13-year-olds.

She really didn't know what to expect, but – as an athlete – she knew all about a variety of sports and what the girls needed to learn, so she acquiesced.

Still, she was only 17 so enlisted some help.

Lima becomes next head football coach at Cumberland

April 13, 2014

CUMBERLAND – The keys to the Clippers’ football program have been handed to a 27-year-old first-time varsity head coach.

The lack of experience when it comes to leading young men, or his age, should not yield shrugs of disbelief. There’s plenty of pigskin knowledge tucked inside the mind of Josh Lima, the choice to replace departed Cumberland mentor Chris Skurka, who in January accepted a coaching position that specifically entails overseeing the linebackers and special teams at Dean College.

Northmen battle back to beat Broncos, 7-4

April 11, 2014

BURRILLVILLE – North Smithfield High seemed rather disinterested in the early going of a Division II-North clash with host Burrillville on Friday afternoon.

After all, head coach Jon Leddy’s unbeaten crew was facing a club that hadn’t won a league contest in three tries this spring. In their collective mind, why would this be any different?

The Broncos, however, assembled a four-run surge with three doubles in a four at-bat span in the back half of the third inning to gain the advantage, though the Northmen responded with four in the top of the fourth to knot it.
