NA Battles Bethel Park For 12-8 Win
The North Allegheny boys’ lacrosse team rallied from an early two-goal deficit for a 12-8 victory at Bethel Park on Friday night.
The Tigers trailed in the non-section contest, 4-2, after one quarter of play. However, an outburst of five goals in the second quarter helped NA grab a lead it would never relinquish. To open the second quarter, Ben Rohan, Marc Bartolomucci and Nick Eck all scored to give NA a 5-4 lead with 3:05 remining in the first half. A goal by Bethel Park’s Kelton Kramer just 10 seconds later tied the game at 5-5 but the deadlock was short-lived thanks to back-to-back goals by Eck to close the half and NA led, 7-5.
In the second half, the Tigers kept the Black Hawks at arm’s length and pulled away for a 12-8 win. Eck paced the offense with a total of five goals, followed by Bartolomucci who posted a hat trick. Rohan and Evan Lyon each scored two goals each. Sophomore goalie Beck Taucher got the start in net for the Tigers and earned the victory.
For Bethel Park, Kramer and Justin Wodarek tallied four goals each to account for all eight of the Black Hawks’ goals.
North Allegheny jumps to 4-1 overall with the non-section win. The Tigers will visit Thomas Worthington in Ohio on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. for tough tune-up game before returning to section play next week.
