NORTH PROVIDENCE â€“ A horrendous start to the second half doomed Tolman High on Friday night.
North Providenceâ€™s fast-breaking attack seized control of the Division II opener for both sides thanks to rattling off 14 straight points to begin the second stanza. The surge paid off handsomely for the host Cougars, who would go on to win by a 64-54 count.
Tolman junior Juan Velez led all scorers with 23 points while classmate Jonathan Percy ruled down low with 17 points. The scoring dropped off considerably as the next high man for the Tigers was Mamour Samb, who finished with eight points.
