November 2nd, 2011
A not-so-funny thing happened to St. Raphael and Ponaganset on their way to sewing up the Division II-Bâ€™s final two playoff spots.
The Saints and Chieftains, who were each just one victory away from clinching berths last weekend and taking on two teams with paper-thin hopes of reaching the playoffs, were instead the victims of two mild upset losses.
Last Friday night, the Chieftains (3-3), who were visiting a Pilgrim team (3-3) that got socked in its three losses to Tolman, West Warwick, and SRA, found themselves dropping a 26-12 verdict.
LINCOLN â€” Normand and Evelyn Olean sat at their dining room table conversing and laughing with Lime Rock Fire Chief Frank Sylvester early Wednesday afternoon.

After 80 minutes of well-played soccer by both squads, the end result was a more-than-fair scoreless tie.
