SOUTH KINGSTOWN – For the final 35 minutes, the South Kingstown boys soccer team outplayed and outhustled Chariho and while the Rebels didn’t come up with a goal, it was the type of performance SK needs to have as it prepares for the postseason.
But the two-minute span that preceded the final 35 minutes is exactly the type of soccer the Rebels didn’t want to see.
South gave up two goals with some sloppy soccer in a 1:40 span at the start of the second half and despite its strong play the rest of the game, couldn’t find a way to put the ball in the net and left with a 2-0 loss that could go a long way when the playoffs begin in two weeks.
“It’s just complete disappointment because we know we’re better than that,” SK captain Zach Gallup said. “Coach just said it took us to get down 2-0 to start playing the game that we play. We weren’t playing with heart.”
