EAST PROVIDENCE – The St. Raphael Academy football team turned in arguably its worst showing in recent memory, one that included nearly 100 yards of penalties, a dismal performance in the third quarter, and a mental mistake here and there.

But somehow, the Saints found themselves within striking distance of the Division II-A team they were battling last Thursday night at Pierce Field, East Providence High – trailing by five points with 8:05 left in the game, the ball sitting on the Townies’ 38 after E.P. turned it over on downs.
