kept its quest for at most a share of the Olympic Conference Patriot Division softball championship alive by completing its part of the puzzle yesterday.
Now, the Mustangs must sit and wait to see whether the other piece fits into their title hopes.
Lindsey Sampolski homered to spark a five-run third inning and powered Triton to a 9-1 victory over visiting Shawnee.
Triton finished its Patriot Division schedule at 6-2. The Mustangs are anxiously awaiting the decision on the Cherry Hill West-Pennsauken game that was suspended by Wednesday's rain with the score tied, 5-5. No information has been presented on when that game will be completed.
Cherry Hill West, which has clinched at least a share of the title, is 6-1. If the Lions lose the game against Pennsauken, Triton and Cherry Hill West will share the title.
Britney Yocum scattered seven singles to pick up the win for Triton. The Mustangs pounded out 11 hits, including six for extra-bases.
