Triton's quick ascent

Vikings dominate Amesbury, push to 2-0

(Continued)

Triton tailback Justin Spillane followed up his 140-yard rushing effort against Swampscott with another big night. He had 16 carries for 98 yards and three touchdowns. Triton quarterback Bradley Whitman was in command all night, although his numbers don’t necessarily tell the story due to a few dropped passes. He completed 6 of 16 passes for 91 yards.

Short was up and down in his debut at quarterback. He started strong, completing his first four passes for 89 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown pass to Jack Fortin. He cooled off after that, finishing 7 for 18 for 121 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Amesbury will host Pentucket on Friday, while Triton will enjoy its bye week after a better-than-expected start to the season.

“This Triton team is a good team,” Connors said. “They beat us in every aspect of the game. I take my hat off to their coaches. They were a much better team than us tonight. I’m not discouraged at all. We just need to iron some things out.”
