WOOD RIVER JCT. — Jay Nilsson had two goals and Corey Rainey scored the go-ahead goal in the second half as Chariho High topped West Warwick, 3-1, to earn its first boys soccer win of the season.
Nilsson scored his first goal with about 26 minutes to go in the first half, but the Wizards (2-2, 2-2 Division II) tied it early in the second.
Then Rainey put the Chargers (1-1-1, 1-1-1) ahead for good with a goal on an assist from Nate Berry midway through the second period.
"Our passing really showed tonight," Chariho coach Les Ahern said. "We dominated, stringing some good passing. We worked hard in training and it showed. And we defended our home field well. I give them credit."
Nilsson added an insurance goal on an assist from Brendan Allamby, and goalie Jacob Linacre finished with five saves.
Chariho outshot West Warwick 9-6.
The Chargers next play host Stonington in the Piver Cup on Saturday at 3 p.m.
