Triton Powderpuff comes out on top in annual game vs. Pentucket

(Continued)

Pentucket started the second half by having a little more fun than the Vikings would have liked, however, when Ali Attenasio ran 55 yards for a touchdown. The Sachems rolled the dice next, opting for the two-point conversion. But the Triton defense was ready, stuffing the Sachems at the 5-yard line and the Vikes’ offense would answer right back for seven more points.

“The girls have enjoyed every single year that we have done it,” Suprin said of the Powderpuff tradition. “It’s a tribute to them and the schools that keep this thing going. The seniors going out this year, they knew what it was like to lose last year. This year is kind of a just reward for them. I’m happy for them.”

Attenasio ran another touchdown in for Pentucket on a first and goal only to see the two-point conversion fail again and Dube would strike again herself with four minutes to go to give Triton the 42-12 final.

“This Powderpuff (game) goes back at least a couple of decades,” said Brennan. “It’s a long tradition. The girls love it, all 24 of them. We practiced for six weeks, once a week and they made it happen. Football is a tough thing to learn in six weeks. But it was a lot of fun.”
