The Avengers are looking strong heading into the playoffs, which start next week.
East Greenwich and Westerly ended their only game of the regular season in a scoreless tie, bringing the Avengers Boys Soccer record to 5-2-5. "Out of 12 games, we've only lost 2," said EG Coach Pat McGuirl after the Monday game. "We've always had good games with Westerly. It's always a physical game and today was no exception." The game had playoff atmosphere to it, he said. "There was close back and forth, and it was low scoring." That could be a good thing, since the playoffs start next week and EG has secured a berth, though just what berth must still be worked out. "It's a very competitive division," said McGuirl, referring to Division II. Out of 16 teams, EG has the sixth-best record. "They're working hard. I'm not unhappy." At …

EG Patch recounts the best sports stories of the year.
Looking back over the past year, there were several championship seasons in 2011 and several near misses too. Last spring yielded three state champion teams at East Greenwich High School. Then, this fall, EGHS saw state championships slip from their grasp three different times. For all the field teams, Carcieri Field is really home now, a year and a half after its delayed opening. Over the summer, town Public Works employees built the snack bar for the field, fulfulling a long-held dream for members of both the Booster Club and the Fields Committee. One sports story that didn’t make our top five this year but deserves a mention is the addition of lights at Cragan Field last May. Through its citrus drive, the EG Rotary Club continues to …

Senior co-captain Zeke Farrell of Cranston scored two goals in a 3-2 win over Brimmer and May on Wednesday.
The Rocky Hill School boys’ varsity soccer team hosted Brimmer and May from Chestnut Hill, Mass., in a New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Class D tournament quarterfinal match Wednesday afternoon. Less than 20 minutes into the match, senior co-captain Zeke Farrell of Cranston scored his 15th goal of the season. That score held until halftime as Rocky Hill dominated the majority of play. Midway through the second half, however, two quick goals by the visiting team caught the Rocky Hill defense off guard. With memories of last year’s home quarterfinal loss against Bancroft in mind, several veterans (including the coaches) asked if history really would rear its ugly head. Sophomore Kamusu Zean of Providence, in the …

For the second year in a row, the Sentinels win the Division II crown by beating the Avengers at Rhode Island College.
Ultimately, the Smithfield Sentinels were not to be denied, as they completed an undefeated season with a 3-1 win in the Division II championship against East Greenwich at Rhode Island College on Saturday afternoon.

Jobe Ebrima scored the other goal in the fifth minute. East Greenwich junior Anthony Padrazo scored in the 12th minute, to momentarily get the Avengers within a goal. However, Smithfield dominated possession for most of the game, leaving East Greenwich with scattered chances in both halves. In the 15th minute, Tyler Amaral missed on a shot at the net. In the …

They will meet powerhouse Smithfield in the final on Saturday.
East Greenwich beat Tolman 1-0 Monday night under the lights at Carcieri Field, moving into the championship round against Smithfield for the second year in a row in a game that will be played on Sunday at Rhode Island College at 2 p.m. In last year’s D-2 championship game, the unbeaten senior-heavy Avengers lost to Smithfield 3-2. This year, Smithfield is unbeaten, with a record of 17-0-2. EG goes into the final game with a 14-4-0 record. EG coach Pat McGuirl said he was “shocked” with the win, considering the team’s youth. “Early on, some days .. they didn’t always seem to go 100 percent,” McGuirl said of his team. “We knew we could get more out of them. I’m just shocked right now. “We were much more intense,” he said. The game was won …

The Avengers go into the playoffs next week with a 12-4 record.
It came down to which team wanted it more. For the second time this season, that team was Coventry, beating East Greenwich, the top team in DII-South, Wednesday night by a score of 2-1. The win gave the Oakers a spot in the playoffs. The Avengers go into the playoffs with a 12-4 record. The Oakers were jubilant with the win. “EG’s been a tough competitor for us in the past so it just feels good to get some revenge on them,” said Coventry junior Joe Corcelli, who scored both goals Wednesday, as well as two of three goals in Coventry’s win against EGHS earlier this season. “To get two wins on the first seed, it’s a good feeling.” “We kind of put ourselves in a situation that we needed to dig ourselves out of by tying Vets a couple of games …
