The Tritons struck early and often, with junior Jessica De Collibus scoring three of the Tritons’ six goals scored in the first 10 minutes. De Collibus had a game total of five goals, all in the first half. Laguna answered with a couple of goals, but then Triton Juniors Kylie Buckley added three and Shay Heft had one. Freshman Maddie Buckley got her first goal. At halftime the Tritons led 10-6.
In the first minute of the second half Buckley came out firing for a score and she went on to score a total of three second-half goals from some great feeds by Heft. Heft added another goal, and Bella Columbo knocked in a score. The Triton defense shut down Laguna, allowing only five shots and one second half goal.
