Chariho roundup: Chargers depart in semifinals


EAST GREENWICH — Chariho High’s boys’ volleyball team qualified for the silver bracket semifinals at the inaugural Little Rhody Invitational on Saturday.

The top five teams in pool play qualified for the gold bracket, the next five for the silver and the last five for the bronze.

The Chargers lost their semifinal game against La Salle Academy, 25-19.

Chariho went 4-5 in its four-team pool. The Chargers first played Ludlowe, Mass. and won the first set 25-19 before dropping the next two, 25-19 and 15-8.

Chariho was swept by Tolman 38-36, 26-24 and 15-13, which put them in a position of needing to sweep Brockton, Mass. to reach the silver bracket. The Chargers came through. Coach Doug Bliven said his team was in control throughout against Brockton.

Chariho was missing three key players, but Bliven said he got the answers to a lot of questions he had which will help him plot a course forward.

“The main reason we went to this tournament was to get more experience,” he said. “I think if we had had our full team we probably would have made the gold bracket.”

Robbie Toth led Chariho in kills with 26 and digs with 30.

Brandon Eaton was second in kills with 15 and Adam Bemis was third with 11. Bliven was quite pleased with the way they worked together in the middle.

Alec Fowler led the Chargers in digs with 24. Stephen Philipp led in blocks with six and had 61 assists.

Chariho’s next match is Tuesday at Pilgrim, 6:30 p.m.
