Triton falls short

Coach blames team's inconsistency against Beverly

(Continued)

Those 13 minutes began just under four minutes into the third period when Kyle Hillick dumped one in past Birarelli’s weak left side, unassisted, to half Beverly’s lead to 4-2. Then Hillick took advantage of a Beverly high-sticking penalty to score again, this time assisted by Derek Donley to make things a one-point game.

But Beverly wasn’t done, as things began to spiral out of control with a pair of game misconducts being handed out to both teams. Connor Irving came in again past Shuman’s right side, assisted by his cousin, Andrew, and Ross Wahl scored an empty-netter to end the game for the final 6-3 tally.

“We can’t have guys not showing up” said Wile. “As inconsistent as we are. Not show up for full games, not show up for periods, not show up for shift-to-shift. And our inconsistency in not putting together a full game right now is really hurting us. There’s no doubt in my mind, if we play anything like we did tonight we’ll lose (the consolation game against either Marblehead or Gloucester) tomorrow too.”

“They’re a good team,” Panthers’ coach Bob Gilligan said of Triton. “I think we got a little step on them. They never got going in the first period and in the third period, they got right back into it. Give these kids credit, they never shut down and they kept skating.”
