Triton 52 Hamilton-Wenham 70

Corey Parsons and Cam Armand had a combined 29 points for the Vikings but it wasn’t enough, as Hamilton-Wenham rolled past Triton 70-52. Lawrence Cuddy would finish with six points in the loss.

Triton’s record falls to 4-10 on the year. While not mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, Triton has to finish the season 6-0 to qualify.
