WOOD RIVER JCT. — Lawson Laurent and Nathaniel Felicetti finished with 14 kills each as Chariho High handed Coventry its first loss of the season, 3-1, in a Division I boys volleyball match Monday night.

Tom Hingerty also contributed 33 assists for Chariho. Chariho won by set scores of 25-22, 19-25, 25-17 and 25-23.

Coventry has been the dominant team in the league this season rolling up a 12-0 record. Chariho pushed the Oakers to three sets on April 17 and North Kingstown also took a set on April 24.

After that, the Oakers have won every match, 3-0.

"I think everything just clicked tonight," Chariho first-year coach Michelle Cunningham-Joost said. "We tried to put our best blockers on their best hitters.

"We had a lot of communication and a lot of defense on top of that. We were able to chase down shanked passes and put the ball back on their court. Everybody was blocking. And even when we weren't blocking, we were able to get touches on the ball to slow it down."

Chariho, which has won three straight, moved to 8-5 overall and in the league.

The Chargers next travel to East Providence on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
