    Winning Week Lifts Providence to 6-1

    Living in Suites Hall means two things. First, long walks to Harkins, Ray, Phillips Memorial Library and Slavin. Second, a view of Providence College’s pitch. For those of you who are new to the soccer lingo, a pitch, a term more commonly used in baseball or softball, is also a soccer field. This means close access to Glay Field, the home of the Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams. If you have not been to a game yet, or have not seen any action on the pitch since this summer’s World Cup, there is no better time than the present to begin following the Women’s Soccer Team. Big East play begins on Friday, Sept. 17, against the Huskies in Storrs, Conn.

    As the Providence College campus welcomed new freshman to its campus on Thursday, Sept. 2, one freshman from that class was missing. Greg Davis ’14, from Jamaica, NY, was on the pitch for his new school as he turned out to be the unsung hero scoring twice for the Men’s Soccer Team, including the game winner with 2:56 left to go in the game. The Friars advanced to the Ocean State Classic Finals after their 2-1 win over URI and will face Brown who defeated Bryant.

    Sportswriter’s Signing Knowledge Gets Put to Use

    It is always great to come back from a vacation with a funny story or a new acquaintance. When my family and I went to Maui and Kauai, two of the islands that make up the Hawaiian chain, for a two week vacation, we needed some groceries. While we were in Kauai, we found a Safeway about 30 minutes away from our hotel. So we drove over, grabbed a cart, and started working on our well-planned out list.
