Sports Update

The girls soccer team is undefeated with a 6-0 record through the end of September. The Townies defeated the following opponents to date: Middletown, Providence Country Day, Shea,
Tolman, Blackstone Valley Prep Mayoral Academy and Central High School.

EPHS Football Exciting Victory Against St. Ray's
For most of the Townie St. Ray's football game late last month, the Townies were in a 6-0 deficit after the Saints scored and then missed the point after attempt. The East Providence defense came up big most of the game stopping any further Saints scoring threats.

Although the Townie offense was slow to get anything going, Townie Head Coach, Jay Monteiro was pleased that his players never gave up. The game was played mostly in a steady mist or light rain and both teams had to deal with the weather.

Townie veteran halfbacks Dion Hazard and Juan Diaz were still suffering from illness and it was tough for EP to move the ball on the ground.

"We needed this win tonight," said Monteiro. "I stressed the need to stay together, be a team on all counts and just don't give up." The Townies never gave up and with 33 seconds left in the game the Townies scored and gained the come from behind win on a Justin Pena run and a clutch PAT kick from Nick Oliveira. Setting up the winning touchdown were at least three key passes from Pena to Jalen Alves. It was the Townies 1st win of the young season.
