Chariho roundup: Chargers play champions close


WOOD RIVER JCT. — Three-time defending Division III champion Smithfield scored five goals in the final quarter to pull away from Chariho High for a 13-10 boys’ lacrosse victory Wednesday.

Chariho, which was playing its first game, led 10-8 at the end of three quarters.

“We are starting to compete better,” Chariho coach Mike Foley said. “We are throwing and catching better than we were last year. We still have to work on ground balls.”

Smithfield took advantage of Chariho penalties in the final quarter to take the lead. Chariho played two players down at times in the final quarter.

Freshman Connor Hillyer and junior Nick Cleary led the Chargers with four goals each. Tyler Bobbin and Mitch Renner scored the other Chariho goals.

Cleary and Renner contribued two assists each. Jake Desrosiers and Bobbin also had one assist each.

Foley said goalie James Rooney also played well for the Chargers. Goalie stats were not available.

Chariho finished with 29 shots.

The Chargers travel to Westerly Friday for a 6 p.m. contest.

Smithfield is 3-0 overall and in Division III.

WAKEFIELD — Nick Lecours and Chandler Scott earned singles wins, but a depleted Chargers’ lineup couldn’t hang with the Crusaders in Wednesday’s Division II Suburban A match.

Both Lecours and Scott were bumped up to singles play after playing doubles the first two matches of the season. Lecours was a 6-0, 6-1 winner at third singles and Scott won the fourth singles match 6-3, 7-5.

Chariho (2-1 overall, 2-1 D-II Suburban A) was missing its second and fourth singles players due to a funeral and a class trip. Prout (2-1, 2-1) swept the doubles matches, which included a Charger forfeit at third doubles.

The Chargers play at Scituate today at 4 p.m.
