Woonsocket Call - - Sports -

WOONSOCKET — The Mount St. Charles boys soc­cer team scored an­other early goal and posted an­other shutout Thurs­day af­ter­noon. Ju­nior for­ward Martin Pi­ette scored from the top of the box in just the fifth minute and sopho­more goalie Ja­cob Mad­dalena made five saves in a 2-0 Di­vi­sion II home win over Mid­dle­town.

“We pos­sessed the ball a lot bet­ter to­day and we moved the ball around re­ally well,” Mount coach Paul Jac­ques said. “Our de­fense also played re­ally well. They only had seven shots.”

Af­ter Pi­ette opened the scor­ing, the Moun­ties dou­bled their lead in the 24th minute when Jake MacK­in­non’s cor­ner kick was di­rected past goalie Liam Clancy by Dre Dan­neker.

Jac­ques said the next three games are cru­cial if the Moun­ties want to earn a home quar­ter­fi­nal. The Moun­ties host Hope Satur­day be­fore fac­ing un­de­feated Moses Brown Mon­day.

Quak­ers too much for North­men

NORTH SMITH­FIELD — Seven min­utes into the sec­ond half Thurs­day night, the North Smith­field boys soc­cer team only trailed the best team in the state, un­de­feated reign­ing Di­vi­sion II cham­pion Moses Brown, by a goal.

The North­men had a chance to tie the game when a cross fell to Justin De­celles in­side the six yard box, but the North­men didn’t take the chance and the Quak­ers took over.

Four dif­fer­ent Moses Brown play­ers put a shot past se­nior goalie Adam Blake­more, as the North­men saw their seven-game un­beaten run snapped with a 4-1 loss to the Quak­ers.

“We felt re­ally good be­cause we con- trolled the first part of the sec­ond half and we dom­i­nated time of pos­ses­sion,” North Smith­field coach Eric Ko­ry­tkowski said. “You just can’t make mis­takes against a team as good as them be­cause they will bury you. We wanted to take away their best scorer, but they are so deep.”

North Smith­field (4-2-4 Di­vi­sion II) grabbed its only goal seven min­utes into the sec­ond half when Michael Fer­nan­des di­rected a Michael deRonde throw in past the Quaker de­fense and into the net.

The North­men visit West War­wick Satur­day.
