EAST PROVIDENCE â€“ Itâ€™s hard to boil down four quarters of action into two calls that werenâ€™t on the side of Sandy Gorham and his East Providence Townies. Listen to Gorham, however, and it became clear that the two judgment calls by the officiating crew played a big part in La Salle Academy waltzing out of Pierce Stadium with a 14-6 win on Thursday morning before an estimated crowd of 3,000.
PROVIDENCE â€“ You probably thought you would never again see one of those old-fashioned voting machines with the little metal levers next to candidatesâ€™ names and the curtain that opened and closed behind voters for privacy.
But if you want to, you can.
PAWTUCKET â€“ When she had finished eating, Shirley Bergeron bundled herself back up and began walking toward the St. Joseph's Church basement exit when someone asked if she enjoyed her meal.
â€śAre you kidding? I'm stuffed!â€ť gushed Bergeron, a 54-year-old Pawtucketer who took part in the first of two seatings at the Pawtucket Soup Kitchen's annual Thanksgiving Feast, held Wednesday afternoon at the Walcott Street parish.
PAWTUCKET â€“ There was no quit in Freddy Gobewole.
On a night in which his heart was his biggest ally, Gobewole willed his way to a 16-yard score with 46.7 seconds remaining. That snapped a 7-7 game and gave Shea an eventual 14-7 triumph over semifinal-bound Tolman Wednesday night at student-dominated crowd at Max Read Field. The Raiders lead the holiday series by a 5-4 count.
PAWTUCKET -- This wasnâ€™t a three-hour barnburner, nor was it as high-scoring as their memorable Division II quarterfinal-round playoff game that transpired 11 days ago.
Instead, the inaugural Thanksgiving Eve showdown between St. Raphael Academy and Johnston High turned into a letdown by the Saints, who turned in a lackluster showing in a 30-6 loss to the Panthers at McCoy Stadium.
