14 SPORTS & RECREATION JULY 10-16, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION MAMA SPUMONI'S recently captured the Darlington Girls' Softball League's 8-and-Under Division championship. The players of the team are, in front from left, Alexandra Cahoone, Kenzie Mooney, Elvyra Cappello, Layla Pereira, Ava-Kinani Plante, and Nathalia Sales; in middle row, Gabriella Barbosa, Florence Morgan, Jaelynne Hagedorn, Megan Gherardini, EeVa Johnson, and My'Lan Fernandes; in back, coach Janelle Lopes, manager Kristen Mooney, and coach Mary Catherine Gherardini. Mama Spumoni's captures DGSL softball championship Howard Rogers, which was sched- uled to play Scituate Post 19 on Tuesday night at Manning Field, is also slated to play a doubleheader against Navigant Post 85 on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Renaud Field, as well as two games against another first-year team, Smithfield/North Providence Post 29, on Saturday at 4 p.m. at North Providence High. "We play with a lot of heart," Morel said. "A .500 season would be optimal for us this year. We have about 13 more games left, I believe, and we're in good shape. We're getting better, and we're starting to piece it together and become more of a team." POST 25 From Page 13 Pawtucket's TIAGO SILVA, who is entering his sophomore year at Tolman High and playing for the Pro- vidence-based Bruno United FC youth soccer club, was recently selected by Generation Adidas to represent the state and head to Amsterdam, Netherlands on an eight-day trip to train with A.F.C. Ajax, one of the world's top soccer clubs. Silva will play in international friendly matches against Academy teams and receive individual evaluation from A.F.C. Ajax's Academy coaches. Silva, who also plays for the Pawtucket Youth Soccer Association's Pawtucket Storm team, was the only freshman on the THS boys' soccer team that won the state title last fall. THS's Silva earns trip to Netherlands to train with A.F.C. Ajax do you know? You're holding 1 newspaper, but we fill 5 every week! They're all at "Ethan Torres is one of our top pitch- ers," Tremblay said. "We pitched him last game. I was waiting to see when to put him in and that was the right time." Down 4-2 after four innings, Pineview struck in the fifth, when with one out and Force on first, Cameron Daley walked and Jace AbiAad doubled to right-center to drive in Force. Logan Magras tied the game by bringing in Daley with a line single up the middle, and AbiAad came home on a close play at the plate on a fielder's choice ground- er to first by Noah Ferreira. "This was our most intense game so far," Tremblay said. "In our first game, we were leading, and then (Middletown took the lead), but we came back to win. We have a great hitting team and (Rumford) has a great hitting team, so I knew this was going to be a battle." While Pineview advanced in the tournament, Darlington American and Fairlawn were eliminated from it after just two games. Darlington American fell to Riverside, 8-4, and Middletown, 6-0, and Fairlawn lost to Middletown, 13-1, and Newport, 14-3.

Slack's three-run homer in the sixth inning gave Pineview an 8-6 lead and helped his team advance to Tuesday night's showdown against Riverside.
