WOONSOCKET – The Mount St. Charles Academy girls’ basketball team again got off to a slow start in its Division II quarterfinal-round game on Monday night at home against an upset-minded opponent, but the 3rd-seeded Mounties came back strong over the final three quarters to defeat 11th-seeded Tiverton, 51-43.

The Mounties, who improved to 16-3 with this win, were back in action in Wednesday night’s semifinals at East Providence High against 2nd-seeded West Warwick, which handed Mount its first loss of the season, 59-57, back on Jan. 16.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.
