BLACKSTONE VALLEY MEMORIES
1967 Woonsocket’s tail-end Villa Novans behind the sharp
shooting and rebounding of Bob Farrow shocked pennant contending Central Falls for the second time this season defeating the Warriors 67-59 and the site was, of all places, the bandbox gym, where the Warriors are nearly invincible. Farrow took scoring honors with 26 points while another productive scorer for the winners was Charlie Smith, who is more noted for his ability to sink a golf ball than a basketball, still, collected 15 points. John Cloutier paced CF with 22 points, Russ Gregory followed with 17 and Eddie Nievera added 15.
Marc Boisvert snapped a 3-3 deadlock with a goal at 6:15 of the third period and Marc Karmozyn followed with his second goal just 1:23 later to put the game out of reach as Burrillville beat Lincoln 5-3 and upped its first-place Met B-One Large record to 12-3-0 to complete a sweep of the current season series with the Lions. Jeff Stone had the other two goals for the Broncos, while Brian Beck had two goals and an assist and Greg Smolan one goal and two assists for Lincoln. Lion goalie Steve Kut turned away 20 shots while Burrillville netminder Shane McConnell gathered 14 saves.
Jim King tallied three goals and two assists, but it was 1997
not enough as Lincoln dropped a 7-6 decision to North Smithfield who overcame a 5-3 deficit with four consecutive goals in the third period in a non-league encounter. Tim Mailloux scored one goal and had three assists and Eric Tripoli chipped in with a goal and two assists for the Lions. Scoring points for the Northmen were Kevin Littlefield, Ken Tessier, Ryan Jackson, Jeremy Dowding, Matthew Bishop, Pat Morel and Jeff Petrin.
