Tolman, E.P. face off in Division III semifinals

March 8, 2012

PAWTUCKET -- They don’t share the same practice facility anymore, but that doesn’t mean the rivalry between Tolman and East Providence has lost any luster this season.
Their two regular-season meetings – a 3-0 Tolman win on New Year’s Eve and a 4-1 E.P. victory on Jan. 28 – were hard-fought, physical battles that saw a lot of penalties and hard feelings between the two Blackstone Valley rivals.
That being said, expect another royal slugfest this weekend when the teams renew acquaintances in the best-of-three Division III semifinals.
