Townies near playoff qualification after just five regular season games

EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence High School boys’ soccer squad remained unbeaten through five Division I regular season games after the Townies played visiting Tolman to a 1-1 draw at Pierce Stadium in their lone outing the week played Tuesday, Sept. 17.

East Providence improved to 2-0-3 with nine points in the league standings. The Townies entered this week needing four points from their remaining 10 games to meet the minimum 13 needed to qualify for the state tournament.

The tie against the Tigers, while a result, was a bit unsatisfying for the locals. East Providence held a 1-0 following Nick Morrison’s goal until Tolman found the equalizer with just 10 minutes remaining in the game. Andy Jackson was credited with the assist. Keeper Andrew Mongeon was credited with eight saves.

Of note as well, EPHS closed last week with a 2-1 road win over Central in Providence.

Colin Capelo scored the Townies’ first goal in the opening 40 minutes then assisted on Gabe Ferreira’s game-winning tally in the second half. RJ DeCampos had the helper on Capelo’s goal. Mongeon made eight saves in the E.P. net.

The Townies were next scheduled to play Shea in Pawtucket on September 25. E.P. stays on the road for a game against South Kingstown on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Curtis Corner Middle School at 4 p.m. The locals return home for a game Tuesday, Oct. 1, against North Kingstown at Pierce Stadium at 3:30 p.m.
