Sports Update


Townie Girls in Thrilling Come from Behind Win:
The continuing pandemic is still creating havoc with the interscholastic athletic schedule for all Rhode Island schools.  To date there haven’t been many contests and the few held so far are not able to admit fans.  On Thursday, January 28, 2021, the Townie girls basketball team took on an always tough Prout high school.  The Townies have struggled as coach Bay Lambert has been rebuilding the program for a couple years.  It looked like more of the same struggle as East Providence went into the half trailing by 14 points.  “I really got after the girls at the half and they responded,” said coach Lambert.  “They never gave up.”  The game picked up in intensity and remained close but with East Providence playing great defense and chipping away, the Townies upended Prout with a 49-44 win.
