Canavan finds midseason form early as Clippers roll to opening victory

December 16, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Junior tri-captain Kayleigh Canavan expected to swim rather well in Cumberland High’s Division I season opener against Smithfield on Tuesday afternoon, but what she accomplished, frankly, threw her for a loop.

Canavan not only manufactured two of her best times ever while capturing the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breaststroke, but she also mustered a superb 50 breaststroke leg in the 200 medley relay to pace her Clippers to an easier-than-expected 55-38 triumph over the Sentinels at the Aquatic Center.

Boys' basketball: Lincoln’s big finish overcomes NS

December 15, 2014

NORTH SMITHFIELD — After playing horribly at the tail end of the initial half and the first part of the second, Lincoln High manufactured an 19-3 flurry over the final 7:29 to edge North Smithfield, 49-45, in a R.I. Injury Fund opener on Monday night.

Thanks to senior tri-captain Devon Deragon’s pretty fast-break lay-in at that juncture of the game, the Northmen seemed destined to reign with a 42-30 cushion. But the Lions took advantage of several miscues by the hosts to move to 1-0.

PAWTUCKET – It is not yet mid-December and high school basketball coaches have hardly begun to shuffle the deck in search of winning hands.

“We’re looking for players,” St. Raphael Academy coach Tom Sorrentine said after finding at least one during Friday night’s 57-48 victory over Shea at Alumni Hall in an Injury Fund contest that doesn’t count in the standings.

Sophomore Peter Wilson came off the bench to lead the Saints with 21 points. Wilson is one of four players Sorrentine is rotating at the point guard position.

Dallas (9-4) 41

Dallas used the 3rd quarter to put this game out of reach. After a tightly contested first half the score was 14-7 in Dallas’ favor. Dallas was able to use an early second half turnover to score a 24 yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Cole Beasley. They used great field position to tack on 2 more touchdowns before the end of the 3rd quarter to make the score 35-7.
