Rhode Island soccer

RISD Soccer
10/19

RISD originally had a home game but that was cancelled and we were able to
find a last minute opponent, Achievement First Iluminar, to play on the
road instead. Our
soccer team showed up prepared and ready to play and it showed in the
first half as we roared to a 4-0 halftime lead.

Our coaches shuffled players around and urged the team to work on the
little aspects of their game, such as ball control and passing around. We
were able to do that
through the second half, winning the game by the final score of 6-1.

RISD – 4  2 – 6
AFI –    0  1 – 1

Oscar C-S – 4 Goals (6 on the season)
Howard V. – 1 Goal (3 on the season)
Dimas C – 1 Goal (9 on the season)

RISD Soccer Record: 4-2

10/22
RISD traveled to American School for the Deaf to play against Rochester
School for the Deaf in place of the cancelled ESDAA Soccer Tournament. Our
team was
motivated and hungry to end the season on a strong note, especially
against Rochester School for the Deaf who’s had our numbers the last few
years (pre-COVID).

Our team jumped out to a quick lead on a goal by our lone senior, Jayden
E. Rochester would tighten up on defense and we had several missed
opportunities, including
a penalty kick. But in the last 10 minutes of the half, we were able to
wear down their defense and quickly capitalized to build a 4-0 halftime
lead.

The coaches urged the team to maintain their tempo and intensity while
continuing to work on their ball control and passing–  and the Roosters
did just that,
slowly adding to their lead through the second half en route to a 8-0
victory.

RISD – 4  4  – 8
RSD –  0  0  – 0

Jayden E. – 4 Goals (7 on the season)
Dimas C – 3 Goals, 2 Assists (12 on the season)
Howard V. – 1 Goal  (4 on the season)

RISD Soccer Final Record: 5-2

This wraps up arguably the best soccer season / team that Rhode Island has
seen in a long time. We would like to thank both RSD and ASD for making
this weekend
happen and giving our students, namely our seniors, a nice closure to
their HS soccer career.

Top five women’s basketball players to grace the LBSU court

Long Beach State University

5. Kirsten Cummings, No. 55

Kirsten Cummings was the first deaf player to be a first-team
All-American.

Cummings played the power forward and center positions for LBSU from 1982
to 1985, where she helped lead LBSU to three straight Elite Eight
appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Cummings still ranks highly in many statistical categories at CSULB.

She is fifth in total points for her career with 1,740 scored. Her 15.4
scoring average is ranked sixth all-time at LBSU and ranks fifth field
goals (725).

Cummings’ defense was just as impressive, collecting 1,064 total rebounds,
the second most in LBSU women’s basketball history. Her rim presence ranks
sixth all-time with 145 career blocks.

She was inducted into the LBSU Hall of Fame in 1990.

note:
she had a long career in pro women’s basketball, both overseas and in USA

story did not mention her height, but she is 6’3

random deafsports thoughts

the biggest disappointment so far is no response
on scores from most schools in the New England
region.

Only Rhode Island has been great with the scores
in boys’ soccer
