Chariho holding its own

September 28, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—It was a slow start for the Chariho field hockey team Monday afternoon but once the goals started coming they came in bunches against Cranston East.

Butler returned the opening kickoff down to the Tiverton 20-yard line and Stanley punched the ball into the end zone one play later as the Mariners cruised to a 41-8 victory in their season opener.
