The Narragansett Youth Soccer Association is offering two camps this year, in late July and mid-August, for the youngsters in your family. The Excel Soccer Camp, for 6 to 10-year-olds, runs from July 23 to July 27. Each session is hosted from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and the week costs $90. There will be a middle school preseason clinic from Aug. 13 to Aug. 16, for incoming sixth to eighth graders. The fee is $80, and the program runs from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Both events are at Christofaro Park, and overseen by Kathryn Mahoney. Kids should bring water, snacks, cleat, shin guards, sunscreen and a heat – since, you know, it’s probably going to be really, really hot that time of the year.

Even without forward Carla Porras for much of the game, the Mariners rally behind the play of seniors Emily Wright and Jackie Iannucci, and freshman Chelsea Sahagian.
PROVIDENCE – A quick goal by Narragansett freshman Chelsea Sahagian set the tone for the Division III girls’ soccer final Sunday night, as the Mariners scored three times in the first half en route to a 4-1 victory against the Middletown Islanders. Like every other game in its perfect 19-0 season, Narragansett never trailed and held a 2-0 advantage on Middletown for much of the game. Sahagian scored on a breakaway 2:55 into the game, to the chagrin of Middletown head coach Dave Kolator. “We had to play a tight defense,” he said, noting that his team switched to man-to-man marking for the game. “We know them, they rely heavily on breakaways. They’re deadly on breakaways, and two minutes into the game, they got a breakaway and buried the …

Narragansett is never seriously challenged, leading from end-to-end of a 9-2 semifinals victory against the Cranston East Thunderbolts.
MIDDLETOWN – On Sept. 20, Narragansett girls’ soccer clung to a precarious second half lead to beat Cranston East 2-1, in the fourth Division III game for the Mariners and the fifth for the Thunderbolts. Suffice to say, Friday night’s Division III semifinals at Gaudet Middle School played out a bit differently. Narragansett scored twice in the first eight minutes, four times in the first 19 minutes, and led 8-1 at the half. Playing reserves and junior varsity players for much of the final 40, the Mariners won 9-2. Mariners’ head coach Kathryn Mahoney said she didn’t have many comments for her team at the half. “I truly think that first half was the best half of soccer I’ve seen since I’ve been coaching, so I couldn’t be happier,” she said…

The Mariners leave little room for drama, dominating Burrillville from the opening five minutes en route to a 10-4 win.
Unlike Monday afternoon’s game with St. Raphael’s, the Narragansett girls’ soccer team left little to chance on Wednesday, dominating every portion of their regular season finale for a 10-4 win. The Mariners (16-0 Division III) quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first five minutes, thanks to a goal by senior Jackie Iannucci, and a goal by junior Carla Porras that Iannucci assisted on. Burrillville (14-2 Division III) had little time to catch its breath. Freshman Chelsea Sahagian scored in the eighth minute, with junior Lauren Wade assisting. To end the early scoring flourish, senior Hailey Kisseberth put one in the back of the net in the 13th minute. Narragansett head coach Kathryn Mahoney said she was much happier with the effort …

The Mariners use a late second half goal from junior Carla Porras to stay undefeated in Division III play.
NARRAGANSETT – After a long, frustrating scoring draught, the Mariners used a goal from junior Carla Porras in the 69th minute to win 3-2 and to stay undefeated in Division III play. At first, it looked like Narragansett (15-0 Division III) was going to rout another highly-ranked team, like their 7-2 win against Middletown last week. The Mariners jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first seven minutes, on goals by Porras and freshman Chelsea Sahagian. Senior Jackie Iannucci assisted on Sahagian’s goal. However, the Saints (12-2-1) didn’t give up after the initial push by the Mariners, who suddenly couldn’t find the back of the net. Sahagian missed twice from short range, and Porras couldn’t head in a pass from Iannucci. Narragansett head coach…

The Quakers put the fear of God into the Mariners for a half, before Narragansett’s offensive pressure leads to an own goal and an eventual 3-0 lead.
NARRAGANSETT – Overcoming a slow start in their third game in four days, the Narragansett Mariners’ girls’ soccer team remained perfect in Division III play with a 3-0 victory at home against the Moses Brown Quakers Thursday afternoon. When asked about her team’s “sluggish” start, Narragansett head coach Kathryn Mahoney said that was the best word to describe it. “The first half was very lackluster, and they played sluggish,” she said, adding that junior sub Lauren Wade seemed to finally jumpstart the rest of the team. “[She] was a sparkplug off the bench,” Mahoney said. “I think it was a wakeup call.” Senior and captain Jackie Iannucci said a perfect league record – currently at 14-0 – is something the squad is shooting for, but they knew…

Rain and thunder in the forecast force the postponement of the D-III girls' soccer rematch.
In its toughest test of the season so far, the Narragansett High School girls’ soccer team will host their opponent from last year’s Division III finals, the Middletown Islanders. UPDATE 1:30 p.m. - Well, at least, they were supposed to face off today. But rain has forced the game to be postponed. A make-up date has not been announced yet. Both teams come into the contest with gaudy records. Narragansett is undefeated in Division III play, 11-0, and their sole loss came in an Injury Fund game against Portsmouth, who is 7-4 in Division I this year. Middletown is 9-1-1 in Division III play. Their sole loss came last week against the St. Raphael Academy, another undefeated team. On paper though, the Mariners are the favorites for today’s game…
