The Headers took the ice in their regular season finale on Tuesday, but fell short against Triton 2-1 in Newburyport. Despite the final score, Marblehead never quit.

Down 2-0 in the third period, Marblehead’s Connor Sheridan scored to cut the lead in half – assisted by Drake Wyman and Cam Waldman. And even though two got by him, Griffin Winter of the Headers stood strong between the pipes with 26 saves.

Marblehead’s Christopher Locke and Hogan Sedky recently made the Northeastern Conference All-League teams, while James Caeran and Kyle Hart were selected as All-Stars.
