NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | DECEMBER 5-11, 2018 NORTH PROVIDENCE / OBITUARIES 15 co-op and replaced Tiverton with Middletown. "It's a big commitment for our Tiverton players to drive that far for practices, so God bless them," said DaCosta, who noted that Tiverton joined the co-op program a few weeks before the puck dropped on the team's first workout. "They're all very good kids, and none of them are seniors, which is very good for our program." Seven players on the squad hail from North Providence, with Campbell, a high-scoring forward, leading that group. Last winter, Campbell scored 14 goals and was second in the divi- sion in assists with 18. Sophomores Jeremy Gervais and Aidan Dorgan are also back after enjoying excellent rookie seasons, as is junior goalie Sean Tikiryan, who was last year's third- string netminder, and senior P.J. Rioles and freshmen Ryan Vukas and Caleb Foreman are newcomers to the team. In addition to DiLorenzo, who scored 11 goals last winter, and Morin, who added 14 assists, Johnston's returnees are senior Gianna Gollotto, junior Ana Tonucci, and sophomores Zach Bernier and Bailey Morin. The co-op squad, which will play four of its home games in Smithfield, two during the first weekend of January at Lynch Arena, and another one in mid-January at the Rhode Island Sports Center, will host defend- ing D-III champion Pilgrim in its home opener on Friday, Dec. 14, at 8:30 p.m. in Smithfield. "(Pilgrim) has another very good hockey team," said DaCosta. "Their goalie graduated, but they still have a lot of players who can score goals. They're going to be tough again."
