SMITHFIELD – The Smithfield High girls' soccer team spread out the wealth last Sunday night, as four players produced the goals that helped the Sentinels defeat Bay View Academy, 5-0, in the Division I quarter- final-round matchup at the Boyle Athletic Complex. After a weekend of spotty rain and high winds, this game went off without a hitch. Two minutes into the game, the Sentinels jumped on the board and never looked back, as they scored two goals in the first half and three more in the second. The Sentinels, who are the third seed in the state playoffs, took the field late Wednesday night for a semifinal-round contest at East Greenwich High against 2nd-seeded South Kingstown, which netted a 2-0 victory over 10th-seeded Cumberland in their quarterfinal-round match on Sunday night. The winner of Wednesday's game will face either top- seeded defending state champion La Salle Academy or 5th-seeded Mount Hope in Saturday's champion- ship game at noon at Rhode Island College. Sunday's victory saw the Sentinels (11-3-2) outshoot the 11th-seeded Bengals, 13-2, and Smithfield senior keeper Abby Leveille earn the shut- out. Smithfield head coach Bob Squillante always gives his keeper props, but he said Sunday's win was more about his team's defense. "The last time we played (Bay View), our defense played really well," Squillante said, referring to his team's 3-0 win over Bay View on Oct. 6. "They did the same again today. They've been playing terrific all season." Offensively, the Sentinels scored their first goal, when from the far corner, Kasey Ruo sent the ball toward the net, and Sami Nicynski put it away. Less than 10 minutes after that goal, the Sentinels doubled the lead on a goal by Riley Hart that was set up by Marissa Ruzzano. Ruo scored the Sentinels' first goal of the second half, and Ruzzano scored the final two goals off assists by Hart and Meghan Flynn. "Our attacking was working well," Squillante added. "We seemed to be much better in sync today. The passing was great and we were finishing. That was the difference. We were putting the ball on a frame, and we took advantage of the goalie a little bit with some high shots." The Bengals advanced to the quarterfinals by posting a 2-1 victory over 6th-seeded 20 SPORTS & RECREATION NOV. 7-13, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER Sentinels rule playoff opener Girls' soccer team returns to state semifinals by trouncing Bay View By KAYLA PANU Observer Sports Writer BREEZE PHOTOS BY KAYLA PANU Left, Smithfield High senior MARTINE RIZZO and her teammates earned their third trip to the state semifinals in the last four years on Sunday night by rolling to a 5-0 victory over Bay View Academy at the Boyle Athletic Complex.

While these fillings have a long history of being safe, durable, and cost-effective, they do have some drawbacks. For one, they rely on the size and shape of the cavity for retention, which means that more of the healthy tooth than necessary may need to be removed in order to ensure that the filling will be held firmly in place. Silver fillings also tend to shrink and, eventually, can darken the surrounding tooth structure. Tooth-col - ored resin composite fillings, however, adhere readily to the surface of the tooth, require less drilling, and are nearly invisible. Tooth-colored fillings are just one option avail- able today to change the look of your teeth. Don't hide your smile behind a lack of information. A visit to DENTAL ARTS GROUP is an opportunity to find out new procedures as well as maximize your dental options. New patients are always welcome here at 1136 Hartford Ave., Johnston, where we want our patients to be comfortable not only with the function of their teeth, but also with the appearance of their smile.
