CHARLESTOWN — Joe Stanfield scored 20 points and rushed for 170 yards to lead the Chariho Junior Varsity Cowboys to a 26-8 win against the Tri-Town Titans to conclude the Rhode Island Pre-Teen Youth Football Conference regular season on Sunday.

Josh Smithey scored on a 30-yard run in the first quarter. Stanfield’s conversion run made it 8-0 lead. Stanfield scored on a 66-yard run in the second quarter and again on a 5-yard pass from Levi King to give the Cowboys a 20-0 halftime lead. That passing TD was set up by a 32-yard pass play to King from Damon Byrnes-Mitchell.

Stanfield scampered 32 yards to paydirt in the third quarter. Jack Haxton led the Cowboy defense with six tackles (two for losses) and forced a fumble. Vail Bowers and Byrnes-Mitchell each recovered a fumble and had five tackles (two for losses).

CHARLESTOWN — The Vikings led 28-0 at intermission. The Cowboys stepped up defensively and scored twice in the second half.

Chariho capped off a third-quarter drive with a touchdown pass from Jared Powers to Nick Graichen. That drive was fueled by strong offensive-line blocking by Mike Pelletier and Mason Thompson. Powers and Graichen connected again on a 15-yard pass on a fourth-quarter drive that was capped by a 7-yard scoring run by Brine Wotherspoon.

Cornerback James Foley broke up a pass to prevent a TD in the first quarter. Foley, safety Bryan Apice, outside linebackers Hunter LaBoeuf and Aaron Bliven, and defensive end Tommy Longolucco were defensive standouts.

Chariho (0-7) will compete in Sunday’s playoffs.
