PAWTUCKET – St. Raphael Academy coach Fred Saunders calls them the “brains and heart of our team.”

They are the Gonzalez sisters – point guard Danyele and forward Rybecca. Danyele runs the show and Rybecca handles the scoring load. Along with fellow starters Seun Shittu, Felicia Baccari and Kaylee Oliver, they have turned St. Raphael Academy into an unbeaten Division II-Central squad that hopes to go deep into the playoffs this winter.

On Tuesday night againt Mount Pleasant, the Saints broke open a moderately close game at halftime with a 29-2 surge to start the second half. The game ended with Saints coach Fred Saunders emptying his bench without a drop-off in scoring.

SRA rolled to a 58-20 victory that sent it to 4-0 in league play heading into Friday night’s early-season showdown with Moses Brown, which is also unbeaten and knocked the Saints out of the playoffs last year in the quarterfinal round.
