PAWTUCKET â€” For a team thatâ€™s been somewhat sidetracked in its pursuit of a high playoff berth, St. Raphael picked the perfect time to have one of its finest games of the season.
Junior Lauren Gaj and sophomore Rybecca Gonzalez teamed up to score 30 points and help the Saints give a strong showing on the boards that paved the way for a key 52-44 triumph over red-hot Lincoln on Wednesday night at the Saintsâ€™ Alumni Hall.
WARWICK â€“ Things were not looking good for Cumberland High three matches into its regular season finale against defending state team tourney champion Warwick Veterans on Wednesday evening.
The Clippers, seeking their 57th consecutive dual-meet victory and third straight unbeaten season, trailed Warwick Vets 15-0. Cumberland needed to make something happen in a hurry and Nick Tribelli answered the call with a stunning pin at 126 pounds.
â€śOnce we got that win from Nick, I knew we had a shot,â€ť Cumberland coach Steve Gordon said after his Clippers rallied for a 44-29 triumph.
