NARRAGANSETT — Sparked by defender Layne Hart, No. 7 Chariho High upset No. 2 Narragansett, 15-6, in the Division II girls lacrosse tournament Thursday night.
Hart defended Narragansett's Anna Lubic, one of the state's top scorers, and did not allow her a shot. Lubic was assessed two yellow cards in the first half and not allowed to play the remainder of the game.
"Layne just completely shut her down. Last time, [Lubic] single-handedly beat us," Chariho coach Brittney Godbout said. "Layne just did an amazing job. She also won the majority of the 50-50 balls in the midfield."
Hart also contributed two goals and three assists.
Gina Foley and Mollie Dyer scored four goals each for the Chargers (6-6). Dyer had two assists and Foley one. Emily St. Lawrence scored three times, Maura Beaudreau had a goal and an assist, and Olivia Brown had an assist.
Godbout said Daria DiBiasio, Elle Lyons and Gabi Huzyk played well on the defensive end.
Narragansett finished 9-3. Chariho next travels to Middletown for a semifinal matchup on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
