“(Kelleher) and (Shay) are feeding me, I’m feeding them,” said Federico. “We are just keeping the ball moving and everyone gets goals.”
Paul Dacy drew the Vikes a little closer at the start of the third quarter, and things settled into a back-and-forth rhythm until Federico dumped it in dead center past Smith at the 4:29 mark, followed less than a minute later with another by Barraclough past Smith’s left side.
Will Fogel pulled off a vicious midfield steal for the Clippers with a minute and a half to go in the third quarter, and buried up high to give the Clippers the 10-4 lead.
Dacy cut the Port lead in half next before Federico had his fourth goal of the day, then Dacy had his third goal with a little over four minutes left to play.
Senior Nick Mombello scored Port’s 12th goal of the day to send Port home on a high note.
“We’re really making it a team offense as opposed to an individual,” said Francis. “If we can continue to keep moving the ball, keeping it a dynamic motion offense, we’ll be in good shape.”
“We want to keep the momentum going,” added Federico.
Triton coach Sean Parsons did not make himself available for comment.
