LAYMAN SIGNS WITH SHIPPENSBURG

 

(2/14/12)  Earlier this week, Brianna Layman signed a letter of  intent to continue her soccer career at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.  As a senior defender this past season, Layman was instrumental in keeping attackers away from the Lady Tigers' goal.  Her defensive prowess helped the Lady Tigers finish with a 14-9 record, good for second place in Section 2.  North Allegheny also achieved playoff successes this past fall, reaching the WPIAL semifinals and the PIAA quarterfinals.

LADY TIGERS FALL TO USC IN
PIAA QUARTERFINALS     

(11/12/11) On a controversial goal by Katey Woistman with just 3:29 remaining, the Upper St. Clair Panthers beat the Lady Tigers by a 2-1 final on Saturday afternoon in the PIAA quarterfinals.  The marker by Woistman was set up on pass by Hannah Wilhelm who appeared to have taken the ball out of bounds before delivering the pass that set up the game winning goal.  The officials' missed call allows Upper St. Clair to advance to the semifinals of the state playoffs.  The Panthers also defeated the Lady Tigers in the semifinals of the WPIAL playoffs. 

North Allegheny was determined to earn revenge against the Panthers by dictating the offensive flow of the game in the first half.  That determination finally paid off with 3:10 remaining in the half when Maddie Layman weaved in between a pair of defenders for a clear shot on net that got past USC goalie Jocelyn Alfera for a 1-0 Tigers lead.  Upper St. Clair did not have the services of leading scorer Carley Bogan for much of the first half who left the game with an apparent right ankle injury.  Bogan did return late in the half, just in time to see Layman tally the first goal of the game.  With solid play on both ends of the field, Layman was named the Wright Automotive Player of the Game.  Thanks to strong play from goalie Madison Martin and defenders like Christine Grom, Leah Langhans, and Brianna Layman, the Tigers took their 1-0 lead into halftime.

In the second half, Upper St. Clair's offense began to pick up steam and garnered three corner kicks with hustling play.  The Panthers finally broke through on their third corner kick attempt as Bogan's corner was headed in by Wilhelm to tie the score, 1-1.  With about five minutes left in the game, the Tigers nearly took the lead on a free kick from 40 yards out on a strong kick by Langhans in front of the USC net.  Off the free kick from Langhans, Katie Hohman headed a touch pass to Mariah Carr who was robbed on a diving save by Alfera and the game remained tied, 1-1.  Just two minutes later, Woistman scored the game winning goal to give the Panthers a 2-1 victory.

North Allegheny's season ends with a record of 14-9 while Upper St. Clair improves to 20-2-1 and will advance to the PIAA semifinals.  The extended playoff run will be a great benefit to the Tigers next season with a bevy of talented players returning in 2012.  North Allegheny will primed for a WPIAL and PIAA championship run again next season.

2011 WPIAL GIRLS' SOCCER

The Lady Tigers will compete again in the WPIAL Class AAA along with 34 other teams.  The top three teams and ties that CANNOT be broken 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, one point for a tie.  Teams that tie for first place will not have the tie broken and each will be declared champions and will receive a section winner's plaque.  Those teams will enter the tournament; and if the teams tied for first place equal the maximum for sectional qualification, NO OTHER TEAMS WILL BE ENTERED INTO THE TOURNAMENT.  In the event of a tie for second, third, and in some cases for fourth place, the Tie Breaker System will be employed.  If the tie persists, head-to-head competition will determine the qualifier.  In the event of a multiple tie, the following tie breaker will be employed:

1.  Section records of the tied teams will be compiled.
2.  The team that has the best won/loss record in head to head competition among the tied teams only will be the qualifier.
3.  If the tie cannot clearly be broken, all tied teams will enter the tournament.

Teams that qualify for the tournament should be aware that they may be placed in a preliminary round and may be assigned to play the weekend prior to the first round of the tournament.

Each game will consist of two equal halves of 40 minutes each.  Regular season game overtimes shall be resolved by playing no more than two "sudden victory" overtime periods not to exceed ten minutes each.  If a tie persists at that point, the game is over and is recorded as a tie.  In post-season play, the procedure to determine a game winner will be the state adopted method of the National Federation Soccer Rules Book.

PIAA Qualifiers - the four semifinalists will advance to the PIAA tournament.

Players and coaches who receive hard red cards and are disqualified from any game by the game official will not be permitted to participate in the next scheduled game played by their team at the same level of competition.  Repeated red card offenders will be subjected to more severe penalties.

The PIAA Board of Directors has adopted a rule for ALL LEVELS OF SOCCER for the 2010-11 school year that REQUIRES "that a player who receives a yellow card sit out a mandatory period of five minutes as indicated on the soccer game clock."
