EAST PROVIDENCE â Itâs hard to boil down four quarters of action into two calls that werenât 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.
âAre you kidding? I'm stuffed!â 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 wasnât 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.
