HARRISVILLE — The Chariho Junior Pee Wees got their third straight shutout and second in a row against Burrillville in a 14-0 win in Rhode Island Pre-teen Football League play on Sunday.
The Cowboys (3-0) beat the Patriots (0-3) by a 29-0 score at home last week.
The Cowboys scored on their first and last possessions. It was a defensive battle in between.
Chariho drove 45 yards in its first series of the day. Owen Gillis swept for 30 yards. Nathan Winthrop scored on a 14-yard run for a 6-0 lead.
Gillis ran 39 yards to score with two minutes left in the game. Zaiden Potter made a conversion run on an end-around play to up the Chariho lead to 14. The Charger defense shut down any final threat as the clock ran out.
On the defensive side of the ball, cornerback Potter and outside linebacker Winthrop each made six tackles for losses.
The Junior Pee Wees travel to Narragansett on Sunday to play the Washington County Raiders at 10:30 a.m.
HARRISVILLE — Burrillville scored the winning touchdown with about four minutes remaining on a 20-yard pass to edge Chariho in a closely-contested game Sunday.
Chariho had taken a 20-16 lead in the third quarter on a 20-yard run by Josh Smithey.
Levi King rushed for a touchdown and passed for another as the Cowboys trailed 16-14 at the half.
King scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter. Josh Stanfield ran in the conversion to make it 8-0. Unlike the other divisions, a conversion run is worth two points.
King passed to Stanfield from 5 yards out for a TD in the second quarter to make it 16-14.
Damon Byrnes-Mitchell and Stanfield had two interceptions each. Defensive end Lawson Laurent made five tackles for Chariho (1-1-1).
Burrillville improved to 2-0-1. The two teams had played to a 16-16 tie last weekend.
Chariho faces the Washington County Raiders at Narragansett High on Sunday at noon.
BURRILLVILLE — Burrillville led 22-0 at the halftime and improved to 3-0 with the nonleague victory Sunday.
Burrillville, which improved to 3-0 with the victory, had beaten Chariho 36-0 last weekend.
This week’s game was considered a nonleague contest and will not count in the league standings.
It will also not be used to determine playoff qualification.
Nathan Paine finished with nine tackles at middle linebacker for Chariho (1-2).
Cameron Perreauet also intercepted a pass for the Cowboys.
The Cowboys play Washington County at Narragansett High on Sunday at 3:30 p.m.
