In 2008, Tolman, Woonsocket, West Warwick, Warwick Vets, and Westerly found themselves tied for first place in the Division II-A standings with 5-2 records and scratching their heads over which were going to be the four that would play in the following weekendâ€™s opening round of the playoffs.
PROVIDENCE â€“ In his wildest dreams, Ed Cooley could probably not have imagined that he would have to deal with several criseis regarding player personnel on the eve of a new season for the Providence College Friars.
