PAWTUCKET â€” â€śGood game, eh?â€ť veteran official Frank Iannetta said with a smile as he stood in front of the scorerâ€™s table with one minute left in Monday nightâ€™s Division I contest between St. Raphael Academy and South Kingstown.
The Saints were clinging to a 47-46 lead at the time in one of those typically competitive high school games that seem to regularly occur at the Dennis Lynch Jr. Memorial Court. As Iannetta joked with the scorerâ€™s table personnel, Saints coach Tom Sorrentine spoke to his team, trying to draw up a play for his best shooter, Graham Lynch.
