The North Allegheny Girls Lacrosse program had never hosted a playoff game in the team’s history until Tuesday night when the Tigers took down Canon-McMillan 18-8 in the opening round of the WPIAL Playoffs.

Canon Mac was playing in its first playoff game in program history, but a deep and experienced North Allegheny squad took control and cruised to the victory.

Camryn Whipple opened the scoring for the Big Macs and gave CM the early lead, but it did not last long. Less than 40 seconds later, sophomore Katie Oates netted the tying score on a free position opportunity.

Then the Skye DePrado show took over.

The sophomore netted back-to-back goals, including a free position marker to extend the Tigers’ lead to 3-1. Canon Mac junior Ashley Irwin scored to cool the NA offense, one of four goals she went on to score in the matchup. DePrado netted the hat trick with roughly 14 minutes to go in the half, followed by Irwin’s second of the night to make it 4-3.

From that point on, it was nearly all Tigers, as DePrado scored goals four and five, back–to-back, leading NA on a tear of six straight markers to take a 10-3 advantage with three minutes left in the half.

Irwin scored a hat trick of her own before halftime, but DePrado netted her seventh and Makenna Tuman added another score to take a 12-4 lead.

The Tigers continued the domination in the second half, as Oates achieved a hat trick, Deprado added her eighth of the game and senior Paige Jones scored a pair.

DePrado earned Wright Automotive Player of the Game Honors in the win for her eight-goal performance. Also tallying goals for NA were Brooke Ferringer, Lola Wilhite, Lexi McClure, and Valerie Davis.

With the win, the Tigers improve to 12-6 overall on the season and advance to the second round of the playoffs. NA battles Upper St. Clair on the road on Thursday night at 7:30.

Canon Mac falls to 11-7 on the season as the Big Macs most successful year in team history comes to an end.

Tigers Top Tribe To Clinch Playoff Spot

Posted on:

The North Allegheny girls’ lacrosse team secured a WPIAL playoff berth on Monday night with a 16-12 victory over rival North Hills. The Tigers will appear in the playoffs for the fifth time in program history and second time in the last three years. Meanwhile, North Hills has been eliminated from playoff contention. Having already fallen to Seneca Valley earlier in the season, North Hills loses any possible tie-breaker scenario with the Raiders thus eliminating the Indians.

In a playoff-like atmosphere at Newman Stadium, North Allegheny received balanced scoring from across the lineup to take charge. Senior Paige Jones and sophomore Skye DePrado paced the attack with four goals apiece. In a strong all-around performance, Jones five caused turnovers and five ground balls to earn Wright Automotive Player of the Game honors from the North Allegheny Sports Network.

Sophomore Makenna Tuman had another strong game on draws and led an impressive team effort on groundballs with 10 on the night. Senior Brooke Ferringer contributed two goals, six caused turnovers and eight groundballs. Freshman Amelia Henderson chipped in with four groundballs.

North Allegheny secures a WPIAL playoff spot with the victory, improving to 7-4 in Section 2-AAA and 9-6 overall. North Hills falls to 6-5 in the section, concluding the competitive phase of its season. The Tigers will host Ellis school in a playoff tune-up on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
