Bulldogs take bite out of Chargers

September 17, 2011

WESTERLY — The Chariho football team's league opener was a tough one under the lights at Westerly High School as the Bulldogs, in front of a raucous crowd, took down the Chargers, 16-0, on Friday.

The Chargers also had a pair of fumbles - one in each half - that halted potential scoring drives and turned the momentum over to the rival Bulldogs.
