Tigers Claw To 1-1 Tie With Panthers

Posted on:

The North Allegheny ice hockey team played to a 1-1 tie on the road against the Upper St. Clair Panthers on Monday night. The tie keeps NA unbeaten on the young season through three games.

North Allegheny earned a power play opportunity at the 13:26 mark of the first period thanks to a tripping penalty on USC’s Sean Stevenson. The Tigers capitalized on the man advantage with a Nathan Taylor goal with 1:56 remaining in the period to take a 1-0 lead.

The game stayed tied through the remainder of the third period and in overtime for a 1-1 stalemate.
