26 SPORTS & RECREATION DECEMBER 6-12, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION can run three lines easily. Barrington still has a few really good players coming back, and their numbers are just about ours. But sheer numbers are hard to beat, and (the champion- ship) should go through (La Salle)." Three players graduated from DiLorenzo's team last year, includ- ing All-State standout Kaylee "Kiki" Doucette, who is continuing her hockey career at Division I Franklin Pierce University, and two MSC freshmen decided to continue their careers at prep schools, but the cupboard is far from bare with this year's talented group of returnees, which features several players who are entering their third or fourth sea- sons with the squad. The senior captains are a solid trio with Cumberland defenseman Elise Curren, MSC defenseman Katie Mastroianni, and MSC for- ward Maddie Cataldo. Curren, who scored 12 goals and added as many assists last year, earned Second-Team All-State honors last winter, and Mastroianni, who added seven goals and 13 assists, and Cataldo received All-Division honors. Also back is Mount senior goal- tender Abbey Dalpe, who was the goalkeeper for the MSC girls' soc- cer team that, thanks to her heroic efforts in net, nipped Pilgrim in the Division II finals. Dalpe, who is continuing her soccer career at Division II Saint Michael's College, recorded a 2.73 goals-against-average in 18 games that was the third-best GAA in the state and also fetched her All-Division honors, and her per- formance almost matched the 2.77 GAA she posted as a sophomore. Mount junior forward Macee Salley, who scored nine goals and added seven assists, is also back, as is Cumberland senior defense- man Holly Pashnik, who will team up with Curren and Mastroianni to form one of the state's best group of blue-liners. Mount senior goalie Gianna Crispino, who played in three games and posted a 1.33 GAA as Dalpe's backup last season, Cumberland senior forward Leah Gallagher, CHS junior forward Brooke Normandin, and Mount sophomore forward Mia Mollicone round out the returnees. As for the newcomers, one of them is from the Lincoln School, which is forming a co-op with Mount and Cumberland this winter, junior goalie Amelia Lambert. And the best freshman of the bunch is center Sara DeSousa, who played for the Mass. Spitfire's Tier 1 team and has a bright future ahead of her. "We have some very good young players," added DiLorenzo, "and we have seven to eight 8th-graders on our middle school team, and most of them are starters. We'll go from senior-heavy to freshman-heavy if everybody stays (at the high school), so that changes the dynamic quite a bit. That will be exciting – that would be something that we haven't had in years – but right now, I can't wait to see how we do this season." The season will begin on Friday when the squad heads to Cranston Vets Arena to take on the Cranston/ East Greenwich co-op team in an 8:10 p.m. affair. The team's home opener is the following Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Adelard Arena against the Toll Gate/Pilgrim/Prout co-op squad.
