Sept 28, 2012-- TOWNIES TAKE DOWN SOUTH KINGSTOWN, 3-0 (25-15, 25-9, 25-23). EP came out fast in games 1 and 2 to get ahead of the Rebels and not look back. Izzy Newton had 18 assists, 3 kills and 8 digs to lead the Townies. The JV team won their match to stay unbeaten at 8-0.

Sept 24, 2012-- TOWNIES FALL AT PROUT, 3-0 (18-25, 27-29, 23-25). It was a tight match as the scores indicate. The Townies just couldn't manage to make the "winning" plays to secure games two and three. The Townies level of consisistency wasn't sustained tnroughout the match to enable the team to beat a good Prout team. The JV team won their match 2-0, coming back in game 1 from some shaky play.

Sept 17, 2012-- EP FIGHTS BACK TO BEAT PONAGANSET IN 5 (18-25, 25-19, 22-25, 25-7, 15-9). Tonight will hopefully be the night that the Townies arrive as a team. For the first time in this young season the Townies responed to adversity with toughness and grit as a team. EP handed Ponaganset the first game and it looked like it was going to be a carbon copy of the Mt. St. Charles match. The Townies responded to take game 2 as a level of consistency was being built. Game three was tight 23-25, and then EP took off in games 4 and 5. The real key was serving. The team has struggled all season to serve consistently. There have been too many errors. Games 4 and 5 had EP serving tough and with confidence. Nicole Strik ripped off a long serving run and had 8 aces for the night. The biggest key was that the team showed some grit, fight and resolve to not get down on themselves and recover. Mary Monagle continued to lead the team with 10 kills, and 8 digs. Izzy Newton has really begun to take over the team on the floor as she added 26 assists, 4 digs, 3 kills and 2 aces. The JV continued their winning ways, 2-0 to remain undefeated. EP will return to the court on Wednesday at home against South rival, North Kingstown. This match will begin the cross-over portion of the league schedule with the D-1 South teams.
Sept 12, 2012-- EP BOUNCES BACK AND SWEEPS BAY VIEW 3-0 (25-13, 25-13, 25-16). The Townies bounced back from a rough Monday night to take care of the Bengals. Mary Monagle (10 kills) and Hannah Drolet (9 kills) led the way offensively for EP. Izzy Newton had her best match of the season with 24 assists, 2 kills and 2 blocks. The Townies found a more consistent rhythm serving and their offense was much more fluid. The Townie JV team remains undefeated, winning 2-0. EP will play their next match at home against Ponaganset on Monday the 17th. Game times are 5 and 6:30.
Sept 10, 2012-- TOWNIES ARE SWEPT OFF THE FLOOR BY MT. ST. CHARLES 3-0 (25-12, 25-22, 25-17). It was an ugly match from the very beginning. EP was timid, unaggressive and error prone. The Townies had 58 direct point errors ( 22 attack errors, 14 service errors, 10 serve receive errors and 12 net violations). EP's inconsistent play has to become more steady against better competition if the team is to make strides throughout the season. The Townie JV team won their match 2-0.
Sept. 7, 2012-- EP PLAYS AN INCONSISTENT MATCH, TAKES DOWN THE PURPLE 3-0 (25-12, 26-24, 25-19). The Townies moved to 2-0, but did it in ugly fashion.
