WARWICK — Tuesday morning’s contest with rebuilding Warwick Vets was the perfect preparation for a Coventry softball team heading into its biggest contest of the young season.
With undefeated Chariho awaiting them Saturday morning, the Oakers produced their finest hitting and fielding display of the season. Senior first baseman Charlotte Bracken had three hits, drove in two runs and scored two runs, while sophomore Tatiana Webb hit an inside-the-park home run to lead the Oakers to a 10-2 victory.

South nine tops Chariho

April 19, 2011

SOUTH KINGSTOWN - Connor Morse threw six innings of four-hit, shutout baseball and his offense manufactured enough runs behind him as the South Kingstown baseball team beat Chariho 6-0 Tuesday afternoon.
While the score got a little lopsided late, it was a pitchers dual most of the afternoon as Morse and Chariho's John DeCataldo went through the order.
But while Morse did a good job of pitching to contact and keeping the pesky Chargers off the basepaths, DeCataldo struggled to find the strike zone late and gave up four runs before tiring in the sixth, where South tacked on two more.
