Game of the week

Amesbury at Triton

Amesbury (4-2) will have momentum on its side as the Indians enter the game with a two-game winning streak. On the other hand, Triton (1-5) has lost four in a row. The good news for both teams is that a perfect record over the final five games will result in a CAL Division 3 championship. Last year, Amesbury beat Triton 22-13 after trailing 13-12 at halftime. The Indians took the lead in the third quarter when the defense forced a safety. Delante Castle finished off the victory with a 37-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. It proved to be the final win of the season for Amesbury, which lost its final four games. Triton picked up two more wins, posting a 2-3 mark in league play.
