PAWTUCKET â€” Make no mistake: Tolman made Shea earn its 60-55 victory Tuesday night at the Donaldson Gymnasium.
The Raiders were the dominant club for much of the way, building a 32-23 lead at halftime before going ahead by 17 points with eight minutes remaining. Thatâ€™s when Tolman head coach Mike Kayata decided to switch defenses from man-to-man to a matchup zone that allowed the home team to make a spirited charge.
WOONSOCKET -- The senior class is one of its smallest in a number of years.
The number of players that graduated from last seasonâ€™s Division II-North championship club, including six of the top eight scorers and one of the finest goaltenders in the teamâ€™s history, was one of its largest.
And several players who are featured in key positions have little or no varsity experience.
But despite all this, Cumberland has been the talk of the division and the areaâ€™s only team with a â€˜0â€™ in the loss column.
