Tritons Fall in Last Inning to Valhalla High School
The Tritons continued their Fall Season schedule in a scrimmage against Valhalla High School. The Tritons played it like a split-squad type game with the returners playing the first half and the newcomers playing the second half. Sophomore Jordan Kassem got the Tritons off to a fast start with a single up the middle and then manufactured his own run with his speed. Senior, Andrew Hinkle started the game on the mound for the Tritons and got three quick outs to start. Hinkle was followed up by junior Kevin Nieh, freshman David Cohen, freshman John Driscoll, senior Nathan Domico, freshman Nathanial Villareal, junior Shane Aldas and sophomore Jordan Kassem. The Triton pitching staff helped the Norsemen offense to 4 runs over eight innings and pitched relatively well. The offense was highlighted by key hits by senior Matt Davidson, senior Tyler Pollak, freshman Nathanial Villareal, and freshman Zack Steffish. The Tritons were leading 7-5 going into the last inning but fell at the very end due to a missed call by the umpire and multiple walks and errors. The Tritons will look to get a win next week against Valhalla High School again on Saturday at 12pm.
