Triton 11, Hamilton-Wenham 10
Trailing for nearly the entire game, Triton came back to tie the game with under two minutes to play, and then scored the go-ahead goal with 44 seconds remaining. Freshman Skyla Lewis stepped up huge to score 4 goals on the day, along with Nikki Sullivan, who scored 3 goals, and Megan Muldowney, Jess Greaney, Sarah Ganzenmuller and Kylie Smith, who each scored once. Goalkeeper Emma Cashman was a rock in net for the Vikings, making 13 saves, including 9 in the second half. Triton is now 6-5-1 on the season and will face Pentucket at home this afternoon, but unfortunately they will do so without star junior Kaitlyn Muldowney, who will reportedly miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
