PAWTUCKET â€” Seems like everyone is in agreement. Shea High once again has an extremely talented soccer team.
â€śShea is the best team in the state in terms of skills,â€ť Providence Country Day coach Stacey DeCastro admitted on Monday after his shorthanded team dropped a one-sided 6-1 verdict to the Raiders.
â€śThere is one thing about Shea,â€ť DeCastro added. â€śThe only one that can beat them is themselves. Sometimes they forget what they do best. I thought they were too casual today on our one goal.â€ť
