18 SPORTS & RECREATION MARCH 28-APRIL 3, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER RAY'S HOCKEY/NEW ENGLAND LEMONADE recently captured the Smithfield Men's Sunday League's 2018-2019 championship. The league is for men over 35 years old. The team battled in the semifinals to win two out of three games and then swept the finals to claim the title. The members of the team are, in front from left, goalie Dan Dudermaine and team captain Jack Coleman; in back, Chris D'Ovidio, Jim Parillo, Richard Boyes, Bob Lombardi, Bill Slaney, Ed Tobin, Eric Boyle, Mike Lowe, and Rick DeSimone. Smithfield High senior ANTHONY LOMBARDI, left, who was a cap- tain and a forward on this past season's Sentinels hockey team that made its sixth straight trip to the state semifinals, is the team's Hobey Baker Award recipient. Since 2006, a senior from each participating high school hockey team has been selected by their coach for their outstanding individual performance on and off the ice. Among the criteria for the award are integrity, positive attitude, coachability, sportsmanship, and community spirit. Joining Lombardi for the award presentation is Smithfield hockey coach ROBERT JACKSON. Sentinels' Lombardi receives hockey's Hobey Baker Award returning goalie, with Owen Milligan backing him up. The Chieftains will open up their season in Wakefield against the Prout School next Monday at 3:45 p.m., and their next two games will be under the lights. They will host Rogers next Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. and Smithfield two nights later. "I believe we could do just about as well as last year if we stay disciplined," said the Ponaganset head coach, who will be assisted again by Bill Lincourt and Mike Watts, as well as welcome a new assistant, Mike Sullivan, who played at Anna Maria College. "I have all the confidence in these kids. I'm aiming high, but we shall see. It's all up to them." CHIEFTAINS From Page 17 Ray's Hockey/New England Lemonade wins Smithfield Men's Sunday League title little more up in the air, but as of now, DeAngelis will play left and senior Sean Ward will be in center. There might be a combo or platoon in right field, with junior Lucas Riccitelli and some freshmen competing for the spot. Hanson will have his assistant coach back in Dave Pannone, whose son, Alex, will also be back to help with the junior varsity squad, and the Spartans are in the process of adding another junior varsity coach. As always, the first goal of Hanson's is to make the playoffs. He said once there, everything else becomes sec- ondary. They'd like to win the divi- sion, but the most important thing is getting back to the postseason. "I'm very excited," Hanson said about his expectations. "We have a chance to be a good team. I think pitching is our strength. In time, I think we will be a very good hitting team, and I think we will fill the holes on defense."
