WOONSOCKET --- Winning close games hasnâ€™t been a strong point for Mount St. Charles Academy this year, but on Thursday afternoon, the Mounties found a way to take a tight battle with St. Raphael Academy.
The Mounties broke a 2-2 tie with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and received a strong outing from senior pitcher Collins Uttermann to down the Saints, 5-2, in their Division I-North meeting.
The victory was a much-needed one for the host Mounties, who raised their record to 5-7 and came into the contest with losses in four of their last six games.

PROVIDENCE â€” Medical marijuana patients say they did all the right things.
They went to the General Assembly to get medical marijuana made legal, they testified at hearings. First they got a law allowing the use of marijuana for chronically ill patients, then they went through the legislative process all over again, testifying at even more hearings, to get a law creating compassion centers where they could get their medicine legally, safely and regularly without having to grow it themselves or have someone do it for them.
