1967 Fred Duffy paced Paw­tucket West with 16 points as

the Rangers whipped Woonsocket 63-46 while hold­ing Class B scor­ing leader Tom As­selin, the Villa No­vans 6-4 pivot ace, to 13 points in an af­ter­noon tilt at the West gym. A fight be­tween two youthful fans broke out im­me­di­ately upon com­ple­tion of the game and it took the best ef­forts of two Paw­tucket po­lice of­fi­cers to break it up and calm down one of the com­bat­ants. Rea­son for shift­ing the game to the af­ter­noon was to avoid a ru­mored “rum­ble” which would have in­volved fol­low­ers of four schools.


Kris Sul­li­van and Ali­son Mur­ray picked up the scor­ing pace in the sec­ond quar­ter as Saint Raphael Academy snapped a seven-game los­ing streak by down­ing Mount Pleas­ant 40-20 in a Class B-North con­test. Ni­cole Piche col­lected the bulk of her game-high 14 points in the sec­ond half to help put the vic­tory on ice. “We had good team play and we dis­rupted them with our press which set up a lot of steals and bas­kets,” said SRA coach Art Mits­menn.


Jeff Xavier closed with 25 points, five steals and two blocked shots to lead the St. Teresa’s Mid­get A quin­tet to a 48-38 win over St. Joseph’s moving the vic­tors to 8-1 over­all. Other top play­ers for St. Teresa in­cluded Corey Martin (10 points, two treys), Kyle Lis­ter (four points, four re­bounds) and Chris Collins (four points, six car­oms). St. Joe’s was led by Mike McPar­lin who caged 13 points, grabbed 14 re­bounds, dished out eight as­sists, had two steals and blocked two shots and Matt Bobola net­ted 11 points and hauled down nine re­bounds, while Tony Gon­calves and P. J. Kudzeba col­lected four points and six car­oms each.
