The Valley League playoffs concluded in the beginning of April. Triton had a very strong showing during the playoffs with four teams making it all the way to the championship games. The #5 seeded Pee wee 1 team lost a tough overtime battle with rival Winchester to take home second place. The #4 seeded Bantam 2 team had a great playoff run stopped by a strong Somerville team in the championship game.
The #5 seeded Mite 1 team and the #5 seeded Squirt 1 team had great years capped off with thrilling championship wins. The Mite 1 team took down a very strong #2 seeded Tewksbury team with a 3-2 win. The Squirt 1 team also outlasted a very strong #3 seed in Winchester 3-2.
Recently, the Triton Squirt 1 and Pee Wee 1 teams represented District 2 in their respective Tier II large state tournaments. Each team won their district championship earlier in January by topping Andover Youth Hockey. Both teams made a great run at another state title by going 3-0 in pool play to advance to the final four on Sunday. The pee wee team fell to Falmouth in the semi-finals. While the squirt team won their semi-final game against Needham before falling to Barnstable in the state finals. Each team has been asked to compete in the New England Regional tournament the weekend of March 11th against the other state finalists from ME, NH, VT and CT. The pee wee team will be traveling to Auburn, ME and the squirt team to Waltham, MA. Wish them luck.
The Squirt 1 and Pee Wee 1 teams competed in the Tier II-S state tournaments March 13-15 at Cushing Academy and Fitchburg State College, respectively and Triton Youth Hockey was represented in fine fashion. Both teams went 3-0 in pool play and advanced to the semi final round. The Pee Wee team lost to an excellent Amherst team in the semis which ended their tournament . The Squirt team took down Cambridge 5-2 in the semi-final game to advance to the finals. The Championship game was one for the ages against very familiar and very talented Tewksbury team. With Triton up 1-0 with 44 seconds left, Tewksbury pulled the goalie and scored to tie the game up at 1-1. Despite numerous chances in a wild first overtime session, the Vikes could not find the back of the net. The game would go deep into a second overtime with Triton pulling out a thrilling 2-1 victory! That makes it back to back state championships for Triton at the Squirt level!
The Squirt team consists of:
Jackson Irving, Cole Daniels, Braeden McDonald, Dom Cardillo, Owen Bell, Gavin Colby, Tyler Egan, Nolan Cole, Quinn Moses, Alex Monteiro, Jack Lindholm and Nick Kutcher
