PAWTUCKET â€“ St. Raphael Academy is running out of time when it comes to making the playoffs.
Needing to spring an upset victory over visiting Smithfield on Tuesday night, the Saints fell victim to a dazzling shooting display by the Sentinels, who hit eight three-point field goals in the first half en route to a decisive 64-56 victory.
The Saints got 25 points from Alcino Aviles-Soares, who was no match for the balanced offensive talents of a youthful Smithfield squad that improved to 11-3 in Division I-North with the victory.
PAWTUCKETâ€”Lloyd E. Mumford, Sr. admits he wasn't there when Pawtucket Police arrested his son on a domestic violence warrant on January 30, but he says he doesn't like what he sees in a video taken by someone who was.
It almost never fails.
Every now again, the budgetary scalpel cuts off funding for sports at the middle school and high school levels.
Naturally, such slicing prompts strong reaction from everyone in town â€“ concerned parents to coaches to the real victims affected by this slashing of essential monetary support, the adolescent student-athletes.

CENTRAL FALLS â€“ The Prout School didnâ€™t back off from the challenge of playing a tough road game against Central Falls on Monday night.
The Crusaders came into the game with a 9-2 record in Division II-South. Central Falls stood on top of the North with a 9-3 record following Friday nightâ€™s 73-68 victory over Tolman. The Warriors hoped to continue their momentum against the disciplined visitors.
PAWTUCKET â€” A multifamily house on Sisson Street that was shot at on Jan. 24 was sprayed with several bullets again late Sunday night, Pawtucket Police said.
Just before midnight, police received a call that someone had fired shots at the window of a house at 182 Sisson St. Police found the remains of a spent round of ammunition between two panes of glass, but no one was injured.
PROVIDENCE â€“ After more than a year of haggling cloaked in the secrecy of a Superior Court judgeâ€™s gag order, lawyers for Gov. Lincoln Chafee, General Treasurer Gina Raimondo and several state and municipal employee unions appear to have reached a settlement in the unionsâ€™ challenge to the landmark 2011 pension reform law, called the R.I. Retirement Security Act.
But no deal can be consummated until it is, in effect, ratified by the General Assembly, which would have to vote to approve any changes to the law they passed in a special legislative session more than two years ago.
