WARWICK, RI — Here’s your recap of Warwick varsity sports for Sept. 6, 2023, as reported on the Rhode Island Interscholastic League website.


Hendricken starts 0-1; Patriots, Titans set to kick off season

Bishop Hendricken High School dropped a 23-20 decision at Bryant University against Monsignor Farrell on Sept. 2. The Hawks held a 20-7 lead going into the fourth quarter, where a late 16-point rally by the visiting Staten Island team secured the Lions win.

Next up: Hendricken travels to Kellenberg Memorial  in Uniondale, NY, for a non-league contest. Pilgrim starts its season on Sept. 9 at East Greenwich. Toll Gate plays its first game on Sept. 14 hosting Coventry.

Boys Soccer:

Bishop Hendricken travels to LaSalle Academy on Sept. 6, looking to improve on last year’s 8-2-5 record in Division 1. Pilgrim visits Chariho to start the season on Sept. 7 after falling 2-1 in the Division 2 playoffs against Westerly last year. Toll Gate, which finished second in Division 4 last season on the strength of an unbeaten regular season and two playoff wins, hosts Block Island on Sept. 7.

Pilgrim starts with shutout; Toll Gate heads north

After finishing at the top of their respective divisions last year (with Toll Gate winning the Division 3 crown and Pilgrim falling in the finals to Chariho), both of Warwick’s varsity girls soccer squads returned to the pitch this week. The Lady Pilgrims blanked Burrillville, 5-0, on Sept. 3, with senior Amaya Coffie leading all scorers with 3 goals and 6 total points.
