Uphill and downhill

As Triton lacrosse played its best game of the year, Pentucket fell 14-8 in what was its worst

(Continued)

While Triton was at its best, Pentucket was uncharacteristically at its worst.

“Not to take anything away from Triton, they played a great game and deserved to win today,” Leary said. “Their effort was great. But in terms of the margin of the loss, this was the toughest we have had. In our other two losses, we were more competitive. Today just wasn’t our best effort or game.”

Jeff Porter played well individually on what was a tough day collectively, finishing with three goals on five shots and an assist for the Sachems. Connor Beaton also played well, finishing with two goals on three shots and two assists. Brendan Sullivan and Ryan Beaton each had a goal and an assist, while Sam Colombo scored a goal.

Triton found a strong contribution from an unlikely source, as freshman attack Sam Aponas, playing in his first varsity game, scored two goals and had an assist.

“We threw him in yesterday at practice because someone was out, and he stepped in today and was huge for us,” Parsons said.

Larry Cuddy led the way for Triton with four goals an assist, while Justin Spillane had three goals and an assist. Will McCaffrey finished with one goal and one assist, as did Jake Gilbert. Liam Spillane tallied two goals, while Ryan Sheahy had one goal in the game. In goal, Nolan Smith had 16 saves for the Vikings.
