Alers, Mena, Carle have given C.F. three reasons to smile

January 10, 2011

PROVIDENCE — There was more than basketball going on inside the Pizzitola Center Saturday night.
Labeling it a local success story doesn’t seem to paint the entire picture, though you could make a strong argument based on the three lads hailing from Central Falls on Lyndon State’s roster – certainly a rare occurrence. A homecoming? The three ex-Warrior hoopsters are all first-year college players, meaning they haven’t been in the hinterlands of Vermont long enough to be jarred loose from our memory banks.

Preventing bullying

January 9, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — Riverside native Kevin Robinson abhors very few things in life, and what tops the list is seeing people treating others unfairly, being unkind just for the sake of humor or self-promotion.
The same goes for those who choose not to live by the “Golden Rule” — that is, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
That was the crystal-clear message the eight-time X Games' BMX aerial trickster and best pal Chris Poulos delivered to over 1,800 East Providence High students in their gymnasium on Friday morning.

Mount girls edge Tolman

January 8, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Nina Morey isn’t about to complain about a win after her Mount St. Charles squad held on for a down-to-the-last possession 33-31 decision against Tolman on Friday.
That said, the MSC head coach came away with the understanding that the Mounties were very fortunate to waltz out of the Donaldson Memorial Gymnasium with the higher point total.
“I’m glad that we had the ability to hang on,” said Morey, “but a little more time for (Tolman) and it may have been a different story.”

Tolman skates past West Warwick, 5-3

January 8, 2011

PAWTUCKET --- Tolman High dearly needed this victory.
Junior Kody Casavant and freshman Jared Pedro each scored a pair of goals and the Tigers’ defense turned in a solid showing over the final two periods to help nail down a 5-3 triumph over West Warwick High on Friday night in their hard-hitting Division III meeting at Lynch Arena.
Tolman, which is now 4-3 and in fourth place in the nine-team division, was coming off ugly back-to-back defeats to Cranston East and Mount Hope that saw the Tigers play both games shorthanded and allow a total of 14 goals.
