NARRAGANSETT â€” The Coventry boys soccer team had the first and last goal-scoring chance in Fridayâ€™s Division II-South contest with Narragansett.
Every chance in between those Oaker efforts belonged to the Mariners and the home side made the most of its opportunities.
Narragansett, needing a win to stay in the hunt for a Division II playoff spot, received two goals apiece from sophomore forward Tod Wright and senior midfielder Pat Stone in a 7-0 victory over the struggling Oakers.
