PAWTUCKET â€“â€” Shea High has slipped its sports car engine into high gear as the soccer season heads into its final three weeks of league play.
The Raiders cruised to a 5-2 victory over Cumberland on Wednesday in a match that featured some controversy and a surprising push by the Clippers that created a 2-2 stalemate early in the second half.
Weekends donâ€™t get any bigger than this one when it comes to the race for the Division II-B title and the other three playoffs spots up for grabs.
On Friday night, Tolman carries its 3-0 record into Pariseau Field for a 7 p.m. contest against Mount Hope (2-1), while on Saturday afternoon, the divisionâ€™s other 3-0 team, West Warwick, hosts St. Raphael (2-1) in a 1:30 p.m. affair.
Seems the Interscholastic League is revising its realignment policies, which could be interpreted as a sign that the stateâ€™s governing body for high school athletics is not turning a deaf ear when its constituents speak up.
Sticking primarily with how these tweaks impact the football side, the idea of altering everything from how often realignment takes place to the specific formula that mathematically helps place teams in one division as opposed to another is something that will surely help to keep the overall product fresh.
