LADY TIGERS FALL SHORT IN
 WPIAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

(11/1/11) The North Allegheny Field Hockey team came up short in their efforts to repeat as champions on Tuesday night, falling to the Penn-Trafford Warriors, 3-0, in the WPIAL Championship Game.  The contest was a rubber match between two teams whose only section loss came against each other.  Penn-Traffordís 5-0 loss on October 14 to the Tigers was their only loss of the season, and the Warriors avenged that defeat with outstanding defense to claim the title.  Penn-Trafford grabbed the early momentum in this game on a goal by Sydney Pribanic off a penalty corner that put Penn-Trafford ahead, 1-0, with 24:24 on the first half clock.  On another penalty corner at 15:07, Cornell University recruit Marissa Siergiej increased Penn-Traffordís advantage to 2-0.  The goal was Siergiejís 20th of the season. 

Despite a flurry of penalty corners of their own to end the second half, North Allegheny was kept off the scoreboard by an air-tight defense that was supported by junior goalie Harry Kramer.  The trend continued in the second half as NA could get few good looks at the net.  The Penn-Trafford defense held the stateís top scorer, Carley Thieret, in check for the entire game.  Junior Emily Humiston had a few opportunities inside the circle, but could not get NA on the scoreboard because of PTís stifling defense.  Penn-Trafford put the game out of reach in the second half when Amanda Vines scored to bring the final to 3-0. 

The Tigers fought hard throughout the game despite the disappointing loss.  Players like Alexa Sofranko, Victoria Robertson, Maria Baldonieri, Lauren Shideler and Emily Hesidence kept NA within striking distance with scrappy play at midfield and the back end.  Hesidence made an outstanding defensive save late in the second half on a PT scoring threat, and for her efforts, was named the Wright Automotive Player of the Game. 

Penn-Trafford improves to 17-1 and will continue their season on Thursday night in a PIAA play-in game. North Allegheny ends the year with a 14-5 record and will look to continue their strong tradition in field hockey with another run at the title in 2012.

2011 WPIAL FIELD HOCKEY

The Lady Tigers will compete again in Class AAA of the WPIAL along with eleven other teams.  The top two teams in each section will enter the WPIAL Tournament.  All playoff entries will be determined by section record only and will be determined by the following method:  Three points for a win and one point for a tie.  Ties for first place will not be broken and ALL tied teams will each receive a section winner's plaque.  In the event of a multiple tie for second, third, or fourth place, head-to-head competition will be used to break the tie.

EXAMPLE:

Team A is clearly first.  Teams B, C, and D are all tied with identical records for second place.  In the head-to-head competition among the three teams, Team B is 3-1, Team C is 2-2, and Team D is 1-3.  Team B is the second place team and is entered into the tournament.

Failure to break the tie by applying the point system will result in applying a point differential system to a plus or minus five to all section games played.  If this procedure does not break the tie, a playoff game will be held.

Duration of the game shall be a maximum of sixty minutes played in two equal halves.  All regular season games ending in a tie will be subject to the following Overtime Procedures:
1.  Prior to the overtime period there shall be a 5-minute intermission
2.  The home team captain calls the coin toss and the winner chooses choice of goal or to take possession of the ball.
3.  Teams will be limited to six field players and a goalkeeper.
4.  If a player was disqualified (red card) during the regulation game,  that tem must play short throughout the overtime.  If a player was suspended (yellow card) the team shall play short until the suspension time is completed.
5.  Only four defenders will be allowed behind the end line on a penalty corner.

The overtime will be 15 minutes "SUDDEN VICTORY".  Regular season games tied after the 15 minute overtime period are recorded as a tie.  There will be no team time-outs, even if a time has unused time outs.  There will be unlimited substitutions.

NOTE:  There have been rules changes approved by the Field Hockey Rules Committee.  Please check the WPIAL website (www.wpial.org)  for details.
