WOOD RIVER JCT.â€”Starting a program is never easy.
Six games into the 2013 boys lacrosse season the Chariho boys lacrosse team has found out just how hard it can be as the Chargers dropped a 17-5 decision to Coventry Thursday, their sixth loss by seven goals or greater.
The learning curve has been a steep one for the first-year program but as any team that has established itself will tell you, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Perhaps no team knows that better than the Chargersâ€™ opponent Wednesday.
SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€”Most days when a team shoots a 159 on the golf course itâ€™s enough to get at least one win.
Monday at Laurel Lanes Golf Course South Kingstown â€“ behind a one-under-par 34 from senior McKinley Slade â€“ shot a 159 but it wasnâ€™t enough as it suffered losses to both Prout (157) and Chariho (156).
â€śWe played well as a team,â€ť Slade said. â€śI personally played pretty well today. I played just solid the whole time and I know 159 is usually a pretty good score.
â€śToday the course isnâ€™t playing that hard so itâ€™s understandable but what are you going to do?â€ť
WEST WARWICK â€” The East Greenwich boys volleyball team didnâ€™t bring it in the opening game and was blown out by West Warwick.
The Wizards made the same mistake as the Avengers in three of the next four games and found itself in the same position.
After losing the first game because they simply couldnâ€™t pass the ball to setter Jesse Brown, the Avengers took advantage of a litany of West Warwick mistakes to take the next two games. The Wizards dominated the fourth game, but more mistakes cropped up in the fifth game of a 15-25, 25-16, 25-23, 15-25, 15-12 EG Division II-South victory.
