28 SPORTS & RECREATION OCT. 15-21, 2020 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH SMITHFIELD BLACKSTONE WOONSOCKET EDITION "I think we have a lot of skills, so we would like to make the playoffs," added Plante, whose assistant coach is her son, Tyler Plante. "But these kids have to work a little bit harder in prac- tice and build up their endurance. They need to improve on their passing and take advantage." As for last Saturday's defeat, Plante, who is also the school's head boys' volleyball coach, said that she thinks the loss will be a learning curve for her team, and she pointed out a few other areas that need some improvement. "Some of them are not realizing that they can't keep the ball up in the air; you have to possess the ball and trap," she said. "We didn't do a good job of doing that and moving the ball. (NP) played much better. They made short, quick passes moving the ball and we didn't do that. We tried to dribble too much up the middle." The Novans are back in action on Saturday with a 1 p.m. game against the Paul Cuffee School at Providence's Drummond Field. Northmen, Mount girls' soccer teams win Div. II openers NORTH SMITHFIELD – The North Smithfield High and Mount Saint Charles Academy girls' soccer teams kicked off their Division II seasons on the right foot last Saturday by netting impressive victories, with the Northmen blanking Ponaganset High on their home turf, 4-0, and the Mounties taking a 2-1 thriller with Burrillville High on the Broncos' campus. In the Northmen's victory, junior striker Sadie Crozier was the player of the game, as she scored twice and assisted on the two goals that senior midfielder Skylah Sullivan scored. Junior goalkeeper Siranee Caron also stopped six shots for the shutout. The Mounties' win saw junior Anna Giacobbe score MSC's first goal midway through the open- ing half off a pass by classmate Karissa Ciullo and sophomore Christina Schoumaker double the lead off an assist from freshman Samantha Omar at the 56th minute. Defensively, MSC senior goalkeeper Gabriella Hisoire turned away eight shots and lost her bid for a shutout with 1:17 left in the game.
