Pinkerton advances to Division I field hockey championship with win over Salem
At the 18th minute of the first half, Rachel Denning put a sharp angle shot past Jordan Dudley to put the Blue Devils up 1-0.
But persistence paid off with 5:29 left. A shot from Erika Smith was deflected by Amanda Travelini and regulation time ended with the game tied, 2-2.
With room to move she fed the ball up to Saltamartini, who deked the last Salem defender and beat the Salem goalie for the game winner.
No. 4 Exeter advanced to the final by beating Winnnacunnet of Hampton, 3-2.
Pinkerton coach Jen Resmini is eager for the chance to repeat as champs.
“We have many new girls in the program. It’s something I hope they can experience.”
