Bulldog upset bid narrowly misses


WESTERLY — Westerly High’s girls’ basketball team nearly upset South Kingstown on Tuesday but the Rebels pulled out a 36-35 Division I-South victory in the final minute.

South Kingstown (14-4, 12-3 Division I-South) went ahead 36-35 with about 20 seconds to play on a bucket from Chapin Graham.

The Bulldogs (9-12, 7-9 Division I-South) got off a shot at the other end of the court, missed and got the offensive rebound. Westerly was fouled on the ensuing shot but missed both free throws with a chance to tie or win the game.

Westerly’s Maddy McLaughlin led all scorers with 22 points. The junior guard/forward also grabbed three rebounds and dished out three assists.

The Bulldogs made just 9 of 18 attempts from the foul line. South Kingstown struggled even more from the charity stripe, converting 11 of 23.

Celia Tomlinson and Mary Matthews led South with eight points apiece.

Tuesday’s result was much closer than the previous meeting between the teams, which was won by South Kingstown, 54-37.

Westerly plays at Chariho at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
