Hillick, Norton lift Triton to 1st win

(Continued)

Hillick played like a new man after the goal, clearly emerging as the best player on the ice over the final 35 minutes. He set up both of Norton’s goals, but could have been credited with as many as four assists had his teammates finished golden opportunities.

Shuman was in control all night, turning away 18 Saugus shots. The senior captain has been the bright spot of an otherwise frustrating season.

“Devon Shuman’s goaltending has been fantastic,” Wile said. “We don’t give up a lot of goals. (Last night), the two guys that are supposed to score goals scored goals. We’re a total work in progress, but we have a chance to pick up four points in 48 hours, which would be huge.”

Triton will play Masconomet in Haverhill tomorrow night. With a win, the Vikings would move into a crowded pack in the middle of the Cape Ann League as the season approaches the midway point.

“We didn’t expect to be in this position, but this is the situation we’re in,” Wile said. “It will make boys into young men, and that’s one of the goals of the program.”
