In their final tune-up game before the WPIAL playoffs, the North Allegheny Tigers defeated Thomas Worthington on Saturday, 13-6, at the MSCL Tournament.

Joining Hagen on the scoresheet were Wes Powell and Anthony Mauro who netted two goals apiece. Antonio O’Barto, Dillon Dugan, Kyler Byerly, Isaiah Davis, Trevor Saundry and Jake Williams also chipped in with goals.
On defense, Alec Vissotski had four forced errors and was joined by defensemen Greg Ferringer, Jack Kairys and middie Ben Maenza with three Forced Errors each.
Following the MSCL Tournament, Kairys was named first team All-Tournament for his outstanding defense. Ferringer earned second-team accolades, while Hagen, Ben Maenza and O’Barto received honorable mention laurels.
