January 10, 2015


WOONSOCKET -- To head coach Tom Pereira, something was clearly missing in the first seven games of the season for the Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op team.

That “someone” was prized transfer Samantha Wellington, who made her season debut Friday against ironically her former club, Mount St. Charles.

PAWTUCKET – Tolman High “executed” Shea High on Friday night, breaking open a close game with a 12-0 run to start the second half. The Tigers, behind 22 points from Steve Otis, rolled to a 69-54 victory over their crosstown rivals.
