COVENTRY — Dylan LaBelle scored 25 points and Chariho High opened the boys basketball season with an 84-67 nonleague win over Division I Coventry on Wednesday night.

Chariho trailed the Oakers at the half, 35-33, but put up 51 points in the second half to earn the win.

“We did a better job of contesting shots in the second half, and we did a better job of rebounding and using our transiton offense for 3s,” Chariho coach Corey Downey said.

LaBelle scored 22 of his 25 points in the first half, when he made all six of his 3-pointers.

Luke Fusaro and Tommy Longolucco scored 13 points apiece. They each had 11 in the second half. Longolucco had six assits and Fusaro five.

Dan LaBelle made three 3-pointers and finished with 11 points and eight assists. Ryan Allen contributed 10 points and Ben Harrison led the team in rebounds with seven.

“In the past three years we’ve played them, we lost by almost 20 every single year,” Downey said. “This should be a really big confidence booster for the team.”

Chariho hosts Scituate on Saturday at 7 p.m.
