Chariho suffers close defeat


CHARLESTOWN — The Chariho Junior Pee Wees had what would have been the tying touchdown called back on a holding penalty late in the fourth quarter and ran out of downs and time in a hard-fought 12-6 loss to North Providence in a Rhode Island Pre-Teen Youth Football Conference game on Sunday.

Trailing by six, the Cowboys mounted a fourth-quarter drive to the Jets’ 5-yard line with three minutes to play, led by long passes from quarterback Konnor Perrin to Collin Fitts and Corbin Brown.

Perrin then ran on a 3rd-and-5 sweep across the goal line for an apparent tie, but the scoring play was called back to the 15 for holding.

The Cowboys were unable to score on two tries. The Jets took over on downs and ran out the clock.

North Providence dominated the first half. The Jets scored on a 20-yard run in the first quarter and on a 58-yard pass play in the second for a 12-0 halftime lead.

Chariho (3-3) owned the second half. Zaiden Potter returned the opening kickoff 45 yards to the Jet 15-yard line. The Cowboy defense stiffened to shut out the Jets for the rest of the game.

Potter led Chariho with 11 tackles from his safety position, four for losses. Middle linebacker Nathan Winthrop forced and recovered a fumble in the first half.

The Junior Pee Wees travel to Providence to play the North End 49ers on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. They lost 21-8 in a non-league game to the 49ers on Oct. 6.
