PAWTUCKET â Tolman High dealt a crushing blow to Shea Highâs playoff chances on Monday.
The Tigers rolled to a 15-5 victory over the Raiders in a Division II contest shortened to six innings by rain at McConnon Field.
Tolman improved to 10-6 with the win while Shea fell to 6-10.
âItâs kind of a bittersweet win for us,â Tolman coach Theo Murray said, âbecause Shea needed to win two of three games this week to be playoff-eligible. Now they have to win their last two games, and they play two tough teams, Wheeler and Juanita Sanchez.â
