PAWTUCKET — Chariho High trailed at the break but surged past Shea in the second half for a 68-55 Division II girls basketball win Thursday night.
Spencer Shiels scored 21 points, her fourth straight game of 20 or more points, and had nine assists and 10 steals for the Chargers (10-8, 9-5 Division II). Kate Powers added 14 points and 22 rebounds.
Chariho was down by six at halftime, 30-24. Coach Chris Piasczyk said the Raiders' triangle-and-two defense caused his team problems and Shea's small court stymied the Chargers' transition offense.
The second half was a different story.
"We were able to get some turnovers and get some easy buckets," Piasczyk said. "And we were just able to knock down open looks. Lucie Willett, Shelby Roode and Emily Norberg knocked down open looks in the second half that we missed in the first half, and that was the difference."
Willett finished with 15 points, six rebounds and five steals, and Roode hit three 3-pointers and scored 14. Norberg added four points.
Shea (8-9, 6-8) was outscored 44-25 in the second half. Yasmine Santos led the Raiders with 20 points.
Chariho, which has won four of its last five games, next hosts Tiverton on Monday at 7 p.m.
