The D-II boys tournament begins on Friday, Mar. 11, at the St. George’s School rink where the top-seeded Rogers-Middletown- Rocky Hill School Co-op team (RMR) skates against #8 Lincoln at 7 p.m. in a quarterfinal, best of three series. RMR gained the #1 seed after gliding past Portsmouth on Saturday, March 5 (See story, page 24). Game two in the RMR vs. Lincoln pairing will occur on Saturday, March 12, at Pawtucket’s Lynch Arena with a 9:30 p.m. face-off. If necessary, a deciding game will be back at St. George’s on Monday, March 14, at a time to be determined. Portsmouth, the #4 seed, draws #5 South Kingstown in their opening game on Friday, March 11, at the Portsmouth Abbey rink at 7:30 p.m. In the photo above, Ben Hernowitz, #15, stuffs a shot into the corner of the net for RMR’s first goal against PHS on Saturday, March 5, despite the efforts of four PHS defenders.
