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.
