WOONSOCKET â€” When the first half finished, Tammy Drape crouched down and just stared at the court for about 30 seconds. If the court was made of dirt, the Tolman High coach would have probably dug a hole and buried herself inside.
It was that frustrating.
The Tigers picked the wrong time to have one of their worst offensive showings of the season. Facing first-place Mount St. Charles Academy on Monday night, Tolman went into a massive scoring drought in the initial half and could never quite recover as the Mounties rolled to a 43-28 rout in their Division II-North contest.
WOONSOCKET â€“ After a three-day operation to clear dangerously heavy snow loads from the rooftops of public schools, classes are set to resume Tuesday for the first time since last Thursday â€“ weather permitting, of course.
