Chariho roundup: Rousseau, Chargers rip Eagles


BARRINGTON — Lauren Rousseau went 3 for 3 with a double, home run and four RBIs to key a 16-hit offense in Chariho’s 13-1 rout over Barrington Tuesday.

The Division I softball game was called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule

Chariho (1-1, 1-1 Division I) scored six runs in the second inning to bust out to an 8-0 lead. Rousseau’s homer was the big blast in the frame, which also included RBI triples by Alexis Marsella and Emily Hollister and an RBI double by winning pitcher India O’Neil.

O’Neil scattered three hits over five innings and struck out five to register her first decision of the year.

Barrington (0-3, 0-3 Division I) has struggled recently, finishing 2-14 a year ago for 15th place in the 16-team division.

“India pitched well, getting the ball over the plate to walk just one batter,” Chariho coach Dave Petrocelli said. “I’m still getting a feel for our pitching. Kailee (Morgan) pitched against a better team (Smithfiel), so it’s up in the air now. Today, the positive news is we hit for power and hit often.”

Meghan Rousseau collected two hits and two runs, while Brianna Cole had two hits, including a triple, for Chariho.

The Chargers play at Cranston West on Friday at 4 p.m.

Coventry ..........................3

Chariho ............................1

COVENTRY — If there is such a thing as an encouraging loss, Chariho found one Tuesday in a Division I-South match against defending state champion Coventry.

After dropping the first two games, 25-18 and 25-13, the Chargers won the third 25-20 and held a lead in the fourth before falling 25-23 to drop a competitive match.

Chariho falls to 2-2, 1-2 Division I-South, while Coventry improves to 2-1, 2-1 Division I-South.

“Coventry graduated some starters but they are still a solid squad,” Chariho coach Doug Bliven said. “We’re still trying to find ourselves as a team at this point of the season so to come back and give them a run for their money, it’s a good sign to see us play competitively against one of the division’s better teams.”

Zach Wilcox contributed 15 kills and 12 digs for Chariho. Alec Fowler and Robbie Toth each had 10 digs, while Aaron Dolan and Stephen Philipp produced seven digs apiece. Phillip, the Chargers’ setter, had 20 aces and four service aces.

Chariho plays host to South Kingstown, 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
