WOOD RIVER JCT. — Chariho High outscored Tiverton 15-5 to end the game and downed the Tigers, 65-55, in a Division II girls basketball game Monday night.

The game was tied at 50-50 with about four minutes left.

"We executed flawlessly. We executed the offense exactly as we drew it up," Chariho coach Chris Piasczyk said. "We were able to punch it down late to Kate [Powers]."

Powers finished with 20 points and 18 rebounds.

Spencer Shiels had another big game with 27 points and eight steals. She was 10 for 10 from the free-throw line. Shiels has scored 20 points or better over the last five games averaging 25.2 points per game during the stretch. She is averaging 17.5 for the season.

"Eliah King gave us some huge minutes with her defense and setting screens to get Spencer open," Piasczyk said. "Down the stretch they were keying on Spencer. Lucie Willett hit a big three and Shelby Roode had a foul-line jumper in the final 1:10."

The Chargers were also 5 of 6 from the line in the final minute.

Roode finished with 10 points and a pair of 3-pointers.

Tiverton dropped to 10-7, 9-6 Division II. Chariho (11-8, 10-5) has won five of its last six games. The only loss during that stretch is to league unbeaten Scituate.

The Chargers next travel to West Warwick on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
