Serving Pawtucket Breeze THE VALLEY FREE NOVEMBER 14-20, 2018 PAWTUCKET – City-based travel provider Collette is set to expand into the old Morrison Thread mill behind Tolman High School at 65 Blackstone Ave., the next significant step in the successful revival of the 50,000-square-foot structure pur- chased by Chance Kelly and Mark House a decade ago. Kelly confirmed that Collette will take up a significant portion of the space on the main level of the mill, with possible further expansion in the future. The company will maintain its existing headquarters on Middle Street, even while adding employees on nearby Blackstone Avenue. Kelly, speaking in the mill com- plex's popular eatery, Mad Dog Cafe, said he and House had a vision of what they wanted this mill complex to eventually be when they purchased it in 2008, and there were times it seemed like an impossible dream, but they're finally seeing the rewards of their work.

With six seconds remaining in regulation in its state championship match against defending champion La Salle Academy last Sunday after- noon at Johnston High's Polisena Stadium, the THS boys' soccer team netted the winning goal to give the Tigers a thrilling 1-0 triumph. The Tigers had their chances in this contest, but couldn't find the back of the net. But as time evapo- rated and the game appeared to be heading toward two five-minute overtime periods, the Tigers were awarded a corner kick. Roy Barrios took the initial kick, while Aliou Sissoko got his body on it. The ball hit the post and went in as the Tolman bench erupted and rushed the field. The Rams then lined up as if they were kicking a football off a tee and lobbed a kick straight at Nelton Semedo in net. Semedo caught the ball, the game was over, and the cel- ebration began.
