PROVIDENCE â€“ A simple but well-executed bunt that St. Raphaelâ€™s Kamryn Labree laid down in the top of the sixth inning Monday proved a turning point in Monday's Division II losersâ€™ bracket semifinal contest against North Smithfield.

Both pitchers, SRAâ€™s Kaylee Sylvestre and Karissa Carlton of North Smithfield, may have gone on flummoxing hitters and maintaining what was a scoreless, rain-soaked affair at Rhode Island Collegeâ€™s Dayna A. Bazar Softball Complex.
