Battling through injuries, the Mariner Tritons willed themselves to a 3-1 victory Wednesday night over Naples in a Region 3A-3 quarterfinal match at Tony McKenna Field.
Goalkeeper Samantha Wolfe was knocked out of action with a hand injury just six minutes into the game. Alexis Restrepo stepped in and saved five of six shots on goal to record the win.
Injured forward Alejandra Muro-Solis did not start the game. She entered the game on a throw-in and immediately put the Tritons in front with a double-cut goal inside the box in the 24th minute. Nursing a leg injury the rest of the way, she endured several hard hits and falls and added an assist in the second half. more
