Griffin Schutz led Trumbull with four goals.
"We got such a good start (scoring three goals within the game's first 7:02), then were only able to get one more score in the half," said Trumbull coach Jim Kammerman. "We needed to play a little better down the stretch and Cheshire was able to take advantage on several of our mistakes. Still, it was a great season. Our best so far (in his six years) at the school."
