Smithfield ........................6

Chariho ............................4

WOOD RIVER JCT. — Chariho High fell just one key hit short in its Division I season-opening loss to Smithfield Wednesday.

Smithfield scored two runs apiece in the third and fifth innings to lead 5-1 before the Chargers rallied for three runs in the bottom of the fifth but could not push the tying run across with runners on base.

Smithfield added an insurance in the top of the seventh off Charger sophomore starting pitcher Kailee Morgan.

“We just couldn’t get another big hit,” Chariho coach Dave Petrocelli said. “It was a decent opening game. We played pretty good defense, delivered some key hits and Kailee didn’t pitch badly as she didn’t walk a batter. I expect Smithfield to be in the thick of the top half of Division I and I expect us to be up there as well.”

Chariho finished 10-6, tied for sixth place in the 17-team Division I last season. The Chargers graduated four key seniors, including All-State selections Sydney Scott, Skye Hart and top pitcher Becca O’Donnell. Smithfield was 7-9, tied for 10th last season.

In Chariho’s fifth-inning rally, Lauren Rousseau and Emily Hollister singled. Pinch-hitter Lexi Desjardins and Meghan Rousseau followed with RBI hits to cut the deficit to 5-4.

Morgan, who pitched in one game last season, allowed 10 hits, did not walk a batter and struck out four. Meghan Rousseau and Lauren Rousseau paced Chariho’s 10-hit offense with two hits apiece.

The Chargers play 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at Barrington.
