WOOD RIVER JCT. — Chariho High scored the first 10 points of the second half and beat winless Tiverton, 65-39, in a Division II boys basketball game Friday night.

Chariho led 23-21 at the half.

"I thought we did a good job in our man help defense," Chargers coach Corey Downey said. "We were really active with the guard play. [Moziah] Mathews gave us a ton of energy and physicality."

Mathews, who scored 10 points, was playing for the first time this season after missing the first seven games with an injury.

Tyler LaBelle scored a career-high 19 points for Chariho. He also had seven rebounds, five steals and four assists. Jaxson Morkis recorded his first double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Jared Landon led Tiverton (0-10, 0-10 Division II) with 10 points.
