Oakers roll over struggling Rebels

February 4, 2011

COVENTRY — It was a classic spot on the schedule for the Coventry Oakers to fall into the dreaded ‘trap’ game.
After winning eight of their last nine games, including Monday’s big win over then number one in team Division I St. Raphael Academy, the Oakers had a date with the 2-16 South Kingstown Rebels.

Garrick would accomplish the feat with 2:55 remaining in the first half as the Wizards won that small battle, but they ultimately lost the war as the Crusaders controlled the boards and won going away, 52-42.
