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.
