That happened to be the case in Chariho on Tuesday evening between the Chargers and Broncos, as both teams went head-to-head in the Division II field hockey quarterfinals with efforts to keep their playoff dreams alive by moving into the next round.
It’s almost unfair to specifically highlight one team’s success in a grueling match, which lasted roughly 86 minutes overall.
