Hudons Holds Off Lady Tigers, 3-1
by Blynn Shideler
After recording a victory against the visiting Novi, Michigan team at home on Friday night, the Lady Tigers took a road trip to Ohio on Saturday morning to take on the Hudson High School field hockey team. North Allegheny senior Bree Monnin scored the first goal, assisted by junior Kailey Vogl with 13:10 left to play in the first half. Vogl had a reverse hit into the circle to Monnin, whose shot slipped past the Hudson goalie on the right-hand side. Hudson would retaliate by storming back to quickly score a tying goal with 11:14 to play in the first half. Maintaining the pressure on the Tigers defense, Hudson scored the go-ahead goal only two minutes later to end the half, 2-1.
Hudson added an insurance goal with 20 minutes to go in the second half to complete the scoring in the game. North Allegheny was unable to capitalize on five penalty corners but successfully defended three corners in their own end. Goalkeeper senior Morgan Mendenhall kept North Allegheny in the game with four saves in the second half. North Allegheny would drop their final non-section game of the season with a 3-1 loss to Hudson.
The Lady Tigers will be back in action when they travel on Tuesday to face Latrobe at 4:00 pm (jv 5:30.) The next home game will be Wednesday at Newman Stadium against visiting Hempfield. Game time is set for 7:30 (jv 6:00.)
