WESTERLY — The Chariho football team's league opener was a tough one under the lights at Westerly High School as the Bulldogs, in front of a raucous crowd, took down the Chargers, 16-0, on Friday.
Chariho was held to just 50 total rushing yards on the night against a very physical, very experienced Westerly front seven all game long.
The Chargers also had a pair of fumbles - one in each half - that halted potential scoring drives and turned the momentum over to the rival Bulldogs.
Westerly had a 27-yard field goal in the first quarter by Brandon Van Horn and then a pair of rushing touchdowns by Spencer Read and Jeremy Octeau in the second and fourth quarters, respectively.
