PAWTUCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | NOVEMBER 7-13, 2018 SPORTS & RECREATION 21 From preceding page struggled through the third before dropping it by a 25-21 score. But the Saints bounced back to win the next set, 25-18, and claim their fifth straight match since suffering a 3-1 loss at Narragansett on Oct. 3. The Raiders, who fell to 9-7, gave the Saints a run for their money in the opening set and led by as many as nine points before the Saints took over. The second set was the same way, as neither team let up. The third set was back and forth, but the Raiders snapped a 14-14 tie and held off the Saints the rest of the way. In the fourth set, the Saints grabbed a 5-0 lead behind the service of SRA senior captain Sydney Charette and never looked back. "We played decently in the first two sets," Silveira said. "The third set, we started get- ting in our own heads with a lot of mental errors, but we finally picked it up in the fourth set." Charette, who served a pair of aces to finish out the second set, had a solid match that saw her collect 11 aces, seven kills, and 14 digs. Korto Jackson also had eight kills and six blocks.

"Offensively, we definitely settled down and had our opportunities to score, but we didn't. I just thought tonight Cranston West was definitely the better team and deserved to win." Brennan Stetson scored three touch- downs to lead the way for the Falcons, and quarterback Cameron Alves threw a touchdown pass and scored a TD on the ground. Campopiano said that his team did not come out and produce, despite knowing they were playing a good team. "There was dropped passes and missed tackles," he said. "You have to go out there and play."
