North Kingstown got some revenge and made a statement on Saturday morning.
Already considered one of the state title favorites, the Skipper boys soccer squad stepped further into the spotlight with a 3-1 win over La Salle in a rematch of last year’s championship game.
The Rams were victorious with the title on the line last year, and since then, the Skippers have targeted a return.
They seized their first big opportunity in impressive fashion. It was a 1-1 game when the Skippers got a pair of goals from Dan Goba to take control. Freshman goalie Ethan Ford played well in net.
The win puts the Skippers at 4-0 on the season. They’ll face Portsmouth on Saturday before another big game next week as South Kingstown comes to town on Wednesday night.
