WOOD RIVER JCT. — Narragansett scored 40 points in the second half and defeated Chariho High, 74-44, in a Division II boys basketball game Friday.

Colby Corson hit five 3-pointers and scored a game-high 23 points for the Mariners (11-8, 10-7 Division II), who led 34-22 at halftime.

Levi King had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Chargers (10-11, 7-9).

"They were tougher than us tonight," Chariho coach Corey Downey said. "They killed us on the boards. They had a ton of offensive rebounds, and we didn't crash the boards at all. We didn't match their physicality at all and we didn't come in ready to play."

Downey praised the "hard, tough" play of Moziah Mathews in the loss.

"He attacked the basket and gave us the energy we needed," Downey said, "but we've gotta go back and work hard and get better. Tonight wasn't the night for us."

John Pellegrino added eight points for Chariho. Mathews score five.

The Chargers next play at Juanita Sanchez on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
