Chargers surge past Tiverton


WOOD RIVER JCT. — Chariho High turned defense into offense Tuesday, erasing an eight-point halftime deficit by opening the second half with a big run en route to a 59-37 Division II crossover victory against Tiverton.

“We went more to a man-to-man in the second half and got a lot of hands in the passing lanes, leading to 20 Tiverton turnovers and many transition baskets for us,” Chariho coach Corey Downey said. “Our newly-appointed captain, Bryan Thweatt, did a great job on their point guard, and Robbie Toth did a great job holding their best front court player to one field goal.”

Chariho trailed 27-19 at the half, but outscored Tiverton 22-2 to open the second half.

Chariho (4-13, 2-12 Division II-South) outscored Tiverton (5-13, 4-10 Division II-East) by a 40-10 margin in the second half. Zach Wallander keyed the second-half offensive surge and finished with a game-high 19 points — his most productive game since scoring 20 in the Chargers’ season opener in December.

Toth added 15 points, Thweatt scored 11 and Adam Bemis tossed in 10 in the victory. Jake Beauregard led Chariho with four assists.

Tim Murray led Tiverton with 37 points.

The Chargers play 7 p.m. Thursday at Portsmouth.

South Kingstown........... 52

Chariho.......................... 39

SOUTH KINGSTOWN — A distinct height advantage led to a big night on the boards for the Rebels and translated into a victory against the Chargers in Tuesday’s Division I-crossover game.

“They (South Kingstown) had 23 offensive rebounds. I think they had more offensive rebounds than defensive rebounds,” Chariho coach Arianna Dolock said. “They have three or four girls around 6 feet, they’re a really big team.”

The Chargers struggled against the taller Rebels (12-3, 10-2 Division I-South) and collected only 18 rebounds.

Even with the vertical disadvantage, the Chargers still held things close in the first half.

“We were tied until the last minute (of the first half) and they got a couple of offensive rebounds and they pulled ahead (25-17) at the half,” Dolock said.

“We stayed within six until 2 minutes left in the game and they pulled away after we started fouling.”

Katie Cuddy led Chariho (7-8, 5-6 Division I-South) with 16 points and seven steals. Abby Cuddy had nine points.

The Chargers visit Barrington Thursday at 7 p.m.
