South Kingstown gets two goals from Michael Gross in a 3-0 win against Coventry in the JV boys’ soccer title game.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN – The Rebels controlled the midfield and time of possession for a 3-0 win in the junior varsity boys’ soccer title game against Coventry Wednesday night at Curtis Corner Middle School. South Kingstown scored first, with 11:50 left in the second half. Freshman Aiden McCaughey got to a 50-50 ball before the Coventry goalkeeper, and poked the ball past the keeper and defenders.

Sophomore Michael Gross headed a free kick from sophomore …

The Sentinels take advantage of an early second half game, and hang on in a physical game against South Kingstown in the girls’ soccer title game.
PROVIDENCE – A goal from Alex Jenkins about 40 seconds into the second half proved to be the difference in a 2-1 win in the girls’ soccer state title game for the Smithfield Sentinels against the South Kingstown Rebels at Rhode Island College on Monday.

Basically, a short piece on why the sports content has been dwindling lately.
So, here is the thing with sports on Patch – They don’t work really well. Well, okay, that’s the short answer. The longer answer is that the effort to properly cover a sports beat, like a traditional weekly or daily newspaper, doesn’t seem to have as much payoff online as it does offline. Dating back to November 2010, when Narragansett Patch started with myself as the editor, I’ve tried a variety of sports coverage. That first year, I tried to get to a bit of everything, and the following year, I stuck mostly to the successful and popular sports. Both approaches didn’t have much of an effect on article popularity though. Basically, two things move the needle when it comes to sports: 1) Live or nearly live coverage of playoff or …
