PAWTUCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | NOVEMBER 6-12, 2019 SPORTS & RECREATION 21 PAWTUCKET FRIED KICKIN' won the CLUBWAKA R.I. Thunder Kickball Fall Championship on Oct. 26 at the Hank Soar Athletic Complex by posting a 6-2 win in the finals that allowed PFK to completed a perfect 11-0 season. The victory gave PFK their 5th consecutive championship, as well as their 11th in 15 seasons. The members of the team are, in front from left, Claudio Baccarri, Nate Rebello, Matthew McClelland, Mark Sharkey, and Jeff Bento; in middle row, Erin Freeman, Lindsay Young, Tara Gray, Morganna Passano, Sarah Fereszt, and Katherine Braganca; in back, Sean McClelland, Sarah Dwyer, Aaron Swinderman, Pete Dadarria, Steve Clements, and Chris Doody. Pawtucket Fried Kickin' rings up another kickball championship! Sunday's victory, which Silva said was "one of the craziest high school soccer games" he's seen, saw both teams tied at 2-2 at the end of regula- tion, as well as two five-minute over- time periods, setting up the five-round penalty-kick session, which eventually needed eight rounds because both teams hit six out of their first seven shots. "That's about as crazy as it gets," Silva said. "When you lose that way, it really, really stinks. In my head, I'm just thinking, 'This is going to be rough either way.' We practiced (PKs), and we had tons of time to prepare for this game, so we were ready. Now we'll just move forward. Our whole thing is just one game at a time right now." Both teams had their chances in the first half, but it was the Tigers who got on the board. With just under two minutes remaining in the half, Alex Almeida, who was on the outside, got the ball to Roy Barrios, who then found his brother, Juan, and Juan wasted no time in shooting the ball past Runci's left side. Midway through the second half, Tolman let in a soft Moses Brown goal to tie things up, but that just fueled the Tigers. Aliou Sissoko took a free kick that was blocked by a wall of play- ers, but the ball bounced to the left side toward Tolman's Salim Chakhsi, who brought the ball closer and put it on net. Right out in front was Tiago DaCosta, who tucked it past Runci for the go-ahead goal with 4:49 to play. But the Quakers weren't done yet. They were able to get the ball down in Tolman's zone and were awarded a corner kick. The Tigers could not clear it, but the shot was blocked by Semedo. But Will Hassett put the rebound by Semedo for the equalizer with 2:09 to play. The Tigers had kicked off the postseason last Tuesday, Oct. 29, by netting a 4-1 victory over 12th- seeded Central at Max Read Field. Roy Barrios scored a pair of goals, his team-leading 13th and 14th of the year; David Torres and Edson Vieira added the other goals, and Juan Barrios and Nicolas Torres were each credited with a pair of assists. From preceding page 62, but saw their top harrier take 19th place. Kipyego led the Saints by placing sixth out of 148 runners in a time of 15:56.43. As Kipyego sped into the final 100 yards of the race locked in a battle for seventh place with La Salle's Tyler Chambers, who finished eighth in 15:57.09, Kipyego poured on the jets that earned him All-American honors as a middle distance runner this year. And not only did he outkick Chambers, but he also sprinted past La Salle's Alex Maxwell, who to his dismay, settled for seventh place, 0.01 of a second behind Kipyego. Medeiros, meanwhile, took 14th place for the second straight year, doing so in 16:24.79, and the Saints' next two finishers were also the top two freshmen in the race, Pedro Mayol, who took 40th place in 17:12.82, and Devan Kipyego, who placed 57th in 17:25.35. "We're just absolutely ecstatic right now," remarked Magill. "Finishing sixth in the state – just coming from four or five years ago, when we fin- ished last in the Class (C champion- ship race) – and now we're going to New Englands. It's such a great feeling. We live to see another day. Eleventh (place at the state meet) last year and sixth this year. We are pumped. Things are coming around, and hopefully we can continue the trend." The Saints' top individual per- formance of the meet came from Mongeau in the girls' race, which contained 141 runners, as she hooked up in a battle for first place from start to finish with La Salle junior Kaylie Armitage and Barrington senior Caroline Livingston. Mongeau never led in the race, but stayed on Armitage's heels before Armitage eventually pulled away and won the race in a time of 18:24.03 that was 4.03 seconds quicker than Livingston and seven seconds faster than Mongeau. "I just felt really good today," said Mongeau, who earned First-Team All- State honors last season by finishing seventh in a time of 19:25.89. "I was happy because I had some competi- tion to push me this time, so it was a really fun race." "That girl is a gamer," said Magill, who also saw freshman Tyla Forbes place 83rd in 22:10.30. "I'm so proud of Rachael. I don't know if I've ever seen her run bad. She listens to everything she's told and she's just an amazing athlete. I don't know if she's quite five feet, but when she's out there in a race, she certainly stands tall. We had a game plan to try and win the race today, and she stuck right there. And it was a fun, fun race to watch." CROSS COUNTRY From Page 19 ACROSS 1. Flat-topped hill 5. Fire usually ac- companies it 10. Talked 12. Skillset 14. Unembarrassed 16.
