22 SPORTS & RECREATION OCTOBER 18-24, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER "Right now, we are battling to be one of those top teams," Squillante said. "We're chasing South Kingstown and North Kingstown, who are doing well this year. But I like the direction that we're going in. If we can just keep up the intensity, stay together, and continue to improve, I think we'll go into the playoffs and have some confidence." Squillante credits his defense for how well his team has done so far this season, highlighting the play of Grace Beaudry, Martine Rizzo, and Kat Laboissonniere. "I also felt all along that our mid- field was key for us," he noted. "We're strong in the middle with Jess Nicholson and Marissa Ruzzano, and a nice surprise is Sabrina Maggiacomo, who has been playing really well. That allows us to play a different formation, going to a 3-5-2, so we can get more numbers up and attack. So far, that's working." The Sentinels, who paid a visit to South Kingstown on Tuesday night, have four more games left, includ- ing Friday's 6:30 p.m. game against Barrington at the Boyle Athletic Complex. The Spartans, who paid a visit to Barrington on Tuesday, will play three more games, and they will also be at home Friday when they host last-place Burrillville at 3:30 p.m. in a rematch of last season's D-II finals. SENTINELS From Page 20 Senior Juliana Capraro, who scored the Chieftains' first goal in the 18th minute, has netted eight of her team's 12 goals this season. Morgan Bigwood and junior Zoie Steinkamp added the other goals. "(Capraro) is having a phenomenal senior year," the head coach offered. "Everyone understands that it's a team effort and not all about one person, but she has been at the right place at the right time and has created oppor- tunities for herself." Defensively, the Chieftains have allowed just 13 goals (and shut out five teams) this season, but in their defeats, they suffered a 7-0 loss to undefeated Pilgrim in the second week of the sea- son and a 2-0 loss to Westerly (9-1-2) late last month. "We lost to Pilgrim, which seems to be the norm in the division at this point in time," remarked the head coach. "And then we lost a heart- breaker in Westerly. We made a few mistakes that they capitalized on. Not taking any credit away from Westerly, but I think that score could have been different." And in the Chieftains' tie, a score- less draw with West Warwick on Sept. 24, "we outshot them (by a) 4-1 (ratio), but we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net," he added. "We could be better, but we're not complaining where we're at. We're optimistic, and we're going to fight as hard as we can for home field advan- tage (in the playoffs)." In Monday night's victory over the Panthers, Steinkamp had her best game of the season by netting a hat trick, with assists coming from freshman Kristen Briggs and Morgan Bigwood, and Sousa stopped 10 shots. The Chieftains, who paid a visit to the Lincoln School on Wednesday afternoon, have four games remaining in the regular season. On Friday, they will entertain the Wheeler School in a 3:30 p.m. game, and the following day, they will host Middletown at 2 p.m. CHIEFTAINS From Page 21 do you know?
