22 SPORTS & RECREATION OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION NCMS girls rule Northern Division Lincoln earns share of boys' regular-season title; RIPCOA state playoffs begin CUMBERLAND – When it came to successful Northern Division middle school soccer teams, the towns of Cumberland and Lincoln cer- tainly had their share. And no team shined brighter than the North Cumberland Middle School girls' team, which recently captured its second regular- season championship in three seasons by winning all 13 of its games. North Cumberland, which put the finishing touches on its perfect schedule by roll- ing to a 4-0 victory on the road over Ponaganset last Wednesday, Oct. 23, out- scored its opponents by an 81-7 margin and shut out nine teams. Led by its captains, Ava Normandin, Caitlin Flynn, Katie Jakubiak, Gwen Ross, Hannah Michalski, and Emma Kucal, North Cumberland picked up two big victories at the start of this month by defeat- ing Burrillville, 2-1, and Gallagher, 5-3. Those were the lone losses for both teams – Gallagher ended up in second place with an 11-1-1 mark, while Burrillville fin- ished in fourth with an 8-1-4 record. A week later, NCMS also grabbed a 3-0 victory over North Smithfield, which ended up in third place with a 9-2-2 record, and North Cumberland followed that with a 4-2 win over neighbor- ing rival McCourt. Speaking of McCourt, which allowed just nine goals this season, the third fewest in the division, it just missed out on a playoff berth. McCourt finished in fifth place with an 8-3-2 record that included a season-ending seven-game win streak and shutouts in its last four games. And not far behind McCourt in the standings was Lincoln, which ended up with a 5-4-4 record. On the boys' side, the race for first place was a tight one throughout the season, but when the dust settled, Lincoln and North Smithfield found themselves tied for first place with 11-0-2 records, and McCourt, which lost to both teams midway through last month, ended up in third place with an 11-2 mark. All eyes were on last Thursday's showdown in Lincoln between North Smithfield, which outscored its opponents, 73-3, and Lincoln, which scored 37 goals and allowed just seven, but both teams battled to a 1-1 draw. They then went on to defeat Woonsocket with ease in their regular-season finales. Sitting in fourth place was North Cumberland with a 9-2-2 record. NCMS had battled Lincoln and North Smithfield to 1-1 draws two weeks ago, but suffered a 3-0 loss to McCourt that snapped its season-opening five-game win streak and a 2-1 defeat to Jenks earlier last week. McCourt's win over NCMS was that school's first over its By ERIC BENEVIDES Valley Breeze Sports Editor BREEZE PHOTO BY ERIC BENEVIDES The NORTH CUMBERLAND MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS' SOCCER TEAM recently captured the Northern Division regular-season cham- pionship for the second time in the last three years by posting a 13-0 record that saw NCMS outscore its opponents, 81-7.
