The Tigers trailed 9-5 at halftime before the Rams pulled away by outscoring NA, 10-2, in the second half. Senior Marina Miller led the Rams with five goals in the Section 3-AAA win.
Junior Ryley McClellan did her best to keep the Tigers within striking distance and netted a team-high four goals to give her 21 on the season. For her efforts, McClellan was named the Wright Automotive Player of the Game by the North Allegheny Sports Network.
Joining McClellan on the scoresheet was Brooke Ferringer, Katie Oates and Skye DePrado. Ferringer and DePrado added assists. Junior Paige Jones posted two assists and a team-best four groundballs.
