PAWTUCKET -- St. Raphael Academy veteran chief Mike Sassi, his assistants and his gridders have spent hours in front of game films this week in preparation of what could be their most difficult foe thus far in North Kingstown.
When the Saints meet the Skippers in a critical Division II-B bash at 2 p.m., Saturday at Pariseau Field, Sassiâ€™s defense will be trying to halt an uptempo, no-huddle offense that has registered 245 points while compiling a 6-1 overall record and 202 while going 4-1 mark in league action.
Sassiâ€™s crew will enter at 3-3 overall and 3-2 in II-B.
BOSTON â€“ Wherever Arnie Beyeler goes, championships seem to follow.

Just like that memorable September night when the PawSox celebrated the night away in Fort Mill, South Carolina, Beyeler found himself smack dab in the middle of another champagne-drenched celebration, this one taking place on a much brighter stage.
