LYNNFIELD — On Oct. 27, the Lynnfield High field hockey team shut out Triton at home by a final score of 3-0. It was the second consecutive shutout win for the Pioneers as they got back to the .500 mark improving to 3-3-2 on the year.

Anna Kaminski led the way for the locals as the junior scored two unassisted goals in the first and second quarters.

Julia Carbone scored in the third quarter and that tally by the sophomore was also unassisted.

Pioneer goalie Ava O’Brien posted the shutout with six saves in goal. The senior also had the shutout win against Amesbury.

“Triton is a very fast and skilled team, so we had to battle the entire game to ensure we came out with a win,” said Lynnfield head coach Samantha Pindara. “Offensively, we connected with our passes, used the entire field, and took care of the ball. Jeanne (Carpenter), Ava (Marotta) and Grace (Klonsky) were solid on the defensive end while Maddy (Murphy) organized the offensive end with Bella (Scala) and Anna (Kaminski) to put the ball in the net.

The day before the Triton victory, the Pioneers blanked host Hamilton-Wenham 5-0.

The Pioneers got off to a great start scoring twice in the opening quarter to take control. Klonsky scored the first one unassisted. Senior captain Murphy made it 2-0 with Alyssa Calvani assisting.

The score stayed that way until the third quarter when Kaminski found the back of the Generals net with Klonsky picking up the assist.

Later on in the third, Murphy notched her second goal of the afternoon to make it 4-0 and that one was unassisted.

Jacqui Carbone rounded out the scoring, unassisted, in the fourth quarter.

“This was a great team win from offense to defense,” said Pindara. “Every player on the team got a chance to get in the game and be a part of this win.”

O’Brien and Riley Slaney split time in net to combine for the shutout game as they had a total of five saves between the two of them.

Lynnfield wrapped up the regular season on Tuesday (Nov. 3) at Newburyport (results not available at press time).
