Chariho knew it'd be facing a ton of pressure from the North Kingstown girls basketball team's defense Friday night.
It didn't matter what the Chargers knew - because the Skippers executed their game plan perfectly.
Switching from a zone press to man-to-man after the Chargers were breaking their press, the Skippers forced turnover after turnover - 29 in all - in a 58-40 win over Chariho Friday night.
The game was tied at four when the Skippers made the switch, and once they did they held Chariho without a field goal for the next six minutes, 44 seconds, taking a 19-8 lead in the process.
It all happened so fast.
Down 1-0, the East Greenwich hockey team gave up three goals in a 2 minute, 44 second span early in the second period and couldn't recover in a 6-2 loss to Cumberland Friday night at West Warwick Civic Center.
After a solid first period, EG gave up a goal just 1:47 into the second period and once Cumberland's scoring train got rolling, it couldn't be stopped. The Clippers scored 25 seconds later and ended the binge with 10:29 left in the period.
WEST WARWICK â€” Coventryâ€™s Zach Levesque was in middle school the last time he scored four goals in a hockey game.
Last night, it was dÃ©jÃ vu for the 5-foot, 6-inch senior as he scored all four goals for the Oakers in a 4-0 shutout over the Middletown Islanders.
