PAWTUCKET â Tolmanâs Jesse Fernandes went to the free throw line with two seconds left in Thursday nightâs Division II-Central game with Exeter/West Greenwich. The scoreboard showed a 67-67 deadlock. Tolman students rattled the bleachers with their feet in anticipation of the upcoming free throws.
âIâm a 70 percent free throw shooter,â the junior said a few minutes after he made the second of two freebies for an exciting and hard-fought 68-67 victory over the Avengers. âIâm glad I had two free throws. I missed the first one but the second one was pretty good.â
PAWTUCKET â Shea High got up close with one of the leading contenders in Division II this season, and the results were not pretty for the locals.
