Pentucket, Triton collide on the wrestling mat

Sachems put up a fight, fall short vs. Vikings

(Continued)

“We needed one more win, which we almost had, and we needed not to get pinned, and we would have come out on top,” Puleo said. “We just came up short. They forfeited two, we forfeited two, so they beat us soundly on the mat. They’re an excellent team and they wrestled well.”

With the win, Triton earned its 18th win in a season that began with many question marks.

“(Our record) is good, but in the past we have had better records,” Mark Boyle said. “Coming into this season we didn’t know how well we would do, and this is great. We are well-disciplined and thinking too much about our record has never been a problem before. We have good chemistry, so we will continue to stay focused.”

It’s that type of chemistry and mentality that has kept Triton successful this season, including a hard-fought win against a Pentucket team that refused to roll over.

“We know Pentucket is our rival,” Boyle continued. “They always have tricks up their sleeve and Coach Puleo always does different things to try to win the match, so we couldn’t sit back and think we were just going to win it. We all went in with the right mentality and focused on getting the win.”

Both Triton and Pentucket are now off until the CAL/NEC Tournament at Beverly High School on Saturday.
