Woonsocket Call - - SPORTS - — By BILL MULHOLLAND


Saint Raphael Academy first-year hoop coach Bob Con­don, who suc­ceeded Jim Don­ald­son, has three vet­er­ans re­turn­ing in Paul Lyons, Bob Hauser and Larry Emidy. Con­don stated there are seven other promis­ing can­di­dates that are bat­tling for start­ing berths that in­clude for­wards Bill Kennedy and Joe Dragon, cen­ter Jim Heather­ton and guards John Mur­phy, Ge­orge Agos­tini, Roy Guar­ino and Ray Mar­cil. The Saints will have a tall team with Emidy and Bob Quin­lan at 6-foot-5, Eu­gene Trem­bly at 6-2 and Heather­ton and Wal­ter Camp­bell at just six-feet.


The Dar­ling­ton Braves, which cap­tured league ti­tles in 1955 and 1956, took home an­other R. I. Pre-Teen Foot­ball League cham­pi­onship this year with a record of 9-0-1 outscor­ing their op­po­nents 282 to six. The Braves had the top three scor­ers in the league in full­back Johnny Pap­pas, half­back Allen Ad­di­son and quar­ter­back Jackie Valen­tine. Pap­pas tal­lied 83 points, Ad­di­son 72, fol­lowed by Valen­tine with 45.


QB Larry Caswell threw touch­down aeri­als of five yards to Bob Brooks and 15 yards to Mike Smith as the Hitch­ing Post of Paw­tucket de­feated the White Ea­gles of Woonsocket 19-7 for the play­off cham­pi­onship in the Paw­tucket Recre­ation Depart­ment Touch Foot­ball League at El­gasco Field. Denny Lucier in­ter­cepted a pass in his own end zone and raced 105 yards for the champs’ other TD. Gerry Gau­dreau and Don Suggs led a strong Hitch­ing Post de­fense that held the White Ea­gles score­less un­til the losers tal­lied on a 25-yard pass from Bill Motte to Paul Sweet­man in the fi­nal min­utes.
