Central Catholic only made one basket it overtime, but it was enough to slip by North Allegheny with a 55-54 road win on Tuesday night.

The Vikings banked in a 3-pointer on their first possession of overtime and held the Tigers to two points including a couple of key stops as time was running out.

NA rebounded the front end of a 1-and-1 miss by Central Catholic twice in the final minute but were unable to convert on either opportunity.

The Tigers fought from behind most of the game and finally took the lead in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter after a quick 6-0 spurt. They held a 50-45 lead with a few minutes remaining but the Vikings ended the quarter on a 7-2 run to force overtime.

Junior Mike Iuzzolino led three NA players in double figures with 13 points. Senior Nico Erimias and sophomore Khalil Dinkins chipped in with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Jack Catanzarite led Central Catholic with 11 points.

North Allegheny slips to 9-8 overall and 3-5 in the section. Central Catholic improves to 4-13 overall and 2-6 in the section. The Tigers will travel to Seneca Valley on Friday for a section game at 7:30 p.m. The game can be heard on the NA Sports Network.
