North Providence Edition Sports & Recreation OCTOBER 14-20, 2020 @ WOONSOCKET – It's been a very long time since the North Providence High boys' soccer team kicked off a season in dominating fashion, but that's what the Cougars did last Saturday morning in their Division III opener against Woonsocket High at the Novans' Barry Field. Taking advantage of some early mistakes in the penalty box by Woonsocket, the Cougars broke out to a quick 3-0 lead before coming away with an impressive 5-1 victory. Sophomore Bruno Teixeira scored a pair of goals, and his classmate, goal- keeper Alex Carvalho, turned away seven shots to help lead the Cougars, who return seven starters from last season's team that posted a 7-7-1 mark (NP's best season since 2011) and reached the D-III quarterfinals. "I'm really happy we got the season started, even as limited as it is," said NP head coach Chris Swiczewicz, whose team will only play six regular- season games. "The challenges of the masks have been a little bit tricky, but it's good to see (the players) out now in actual live action. And the masks didn't hinder as much as I thought. I think the training we did really helped with that." In the first half, the Cougars quickly jumped on the scoreboard on a goal by senior captain Zach Auslander, who scored on the rebound of his own shot off WHS keeper Jayson Inthasane, and after Teixeira doubled NP's lead by firing a shot over Inthasane's head, junior Juan Acevedo scored on a penalty kick to make it a 3-0 game. The Novans scored their goal on a penalty kick by Mbye Camara, but the Cougars got that goal right back before halftime when junior Joel Do Rosario found the back of the net. "(The defense) solidified really quick," Swiczewicz said. "Pretty much everyone on defense is returning from last year, so our defense is definitely solid. And Alex, our keeper, was pushing for the number one spot last season as a freshman, so he's also right there."

Tooth bonding is a less expensive cosmetic dental procedure that uses a composite resin to repair damaged teeth. Bonding does not require anesthesia or multiple procedures, and your dental visit won't be too dissimilar from having a small cavity filled. Although there are no major risks involved in tooth bonding, it is worth noting that the material is not as strong as natural teeth and can chip or crack from chewing hard food such as candy or ice. On average, bonding can last four to eight years, depending on tooth location and patient's bite and eating and chewing habits. Tooth bonding is just one option available today to change the look of your teeth. Don't hide your smile behind a lack of information. A visit to DENTAL ARTS GROUP, A Collaborative Practice Committed to Excellence, is an opportunity to find out new procedures as well as maximize your dental options. We want our patients to be comfortable not only with the function of their teeth, but also with the appearance of their smile. New patients are always welcome here at 1136 Hartford Ave., Johnston. Please call 401-521-3661 for an appointment Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Friday 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. P.S. Caring for bonded teeth is little different from normal recommended tooth care—brush twice a day and avoid hard foods, drinks known to stain teeth, and biting your nails.
