CENTRAL FALLS â€” There was a buzz in the stands on Thursday night as Central Falls fans awaited the start of a Division II crossover game matching their North Division-leading Warriors with a 7-2 Tiverton team that is tied for first place in the East.
The Tigers quickly quieted the local crowd by storming out to a 23-5 lead midway through the first half en route to an 80-64 triumph.
â€śTheyâ€™re good,â€ť C.F. coach Brian Crookes conceded after the game. â€śI would put them up there with Rogers, West Warwick and Barrington as the best teams we have seen this season.â€ť
LINCOLN â€” Even now, the portable rental marquee sign sitting in the snow outside the Christ Church Parish House reads, in part, â€śChristmas joy continues.â€ť
â€śWe haven't been able to change it because of the weather, the way it's been,â€ť chuckled Rev. Scott Gunn, the Episcopal church's rector for over three years now.
Fact is, neither Gunn nor his parishioners have had much to celebrate lately. Due to serious financial hardships, he has asked his congregation to vote on Jan 30 to accept a merger with Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Cumberland Hill.
