The North Allegheny Boys Volleyball team had no problems on Tuesday night, beating Pine-Richland 3-0 in a section match.

Cole Dorn led the way for the Tigers in the second set, adding four kills and a tip. Freshman Jake Koch ended the set with a kill making the score 25-18.
NA found another 5-0 lead in the third set, with back-to-back kills from senior Michal Mosbacher, a Sanfillipo tip and a kill from senior Gavin Owens. The Tigers kept a consistent lead throughout the frame. The 25-11 set ended on an ace from Dorn.
Mosbacher led the way with eight kills and an ace. Dorn also added seven kills and an ace, good enough to earn Wright Automotive Player of the Game honors for the impressive performance in the second set. Hrvoich had four kills and two aces as well.
