It’s been quite a start to soccer season at North Kingstown High School.
As of Tuesday, both the boys and girls varsity teams sported unbeaten records. The boys were 4-0 heading into a matchup with Central Falls. The girls team improved to 5-0 on Tuesday with a blowout win over Prout.
For the boys, the ride started with a bang as the Skippers beat defending state champion Tolman 2-1 in the season opener. They followed with a 4-0 shutout of Smithfield before two more 2-1 wins over likely contenders Shea and South Kingstown. Six different players have scored goals for the Skippers, led by Owen Ennis with three. Goalie Dan Kennedy has led the defense. The Skippers are already the last unbeaten team in Division I.
In the girls ranks, North Kingstown owns close wins over Mt. Hope, South Kingstown and Portsmouth, plus lopsided victories over Prout and Lincoln. Sadie Souls leads the team with seven goals and four assists. Amaya Dickenson and Haleigh Ward have four goals each. Goalie Maya Gamble has helped the Skippers log two shutouts.
Mariners win opener
The Narragansett High School football team will dive into a challenging Division III slate with plenty of confidence after picking up a non-league win over defending Division IV champion Tiverton on Saturday. The Mariners trailed 24-13 after three quarters but outscored the Tigers 15-0 in the fourth en route to the comeback win.
Eddie Blessing accounted for three touchdowns, two through the air and one on the ground. Tyler Poirier and Jared Chaloux caught the touchdown passes. Atticus Duncan ran in the other score.
Narragansett opens D-III play against Tolman Saturday morning at 10 at Jim Zepp Field.
Narragansett volleyball picking up where it left off
Graduation took some key players, but the Narragansett High School volleyball team hasn’t missed a beat after last year’s 14-2 campaign. The Mariners carried a 4-0 record into Wednesday’s match against Davies, with wins over Tiverton, Mt. Pleasant, Middletown and Shea. None of those opponents has taken a set off the Mariners.
